Bible Baptist

Bible Baptist is a descriptive title used most commonly by churches of the World Baptist Fellowship, Baptist Bible Fellowship International, or unaffiliated Independent Baptists. The use of the term "Bible Baptist" seems to be primarily an outgrowth of fundamentalism, and is intended to designate Baptists that believe the Bible and in the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, as opposed to Liberal Christianity, which they see as a rejection of the Bible. The Fundamental Baptist Bible Institute (today's Arlington Baptist College in Arlington, TX), founded by J. Frank Norris and Louis Entzminger, was influential in popularizing the name. Most "Bible Baptist" churches are members of the WBF, BBFI, or have been affiliated with them.
