    Default Strange church names.

    Near me are two Baptist Churches with strange names. Neither is named after a near by city.

    1. St. Marys Baptist Church.

    2. Virgin Mary Baptist Church.

    Any pastoral candidates?

    A guy from a camp-meeting one time said he pastored "Lovelady B.C.". I looked it up, and he was telling the truth.

    I preached at St Francis Baptist Church (in St Francis, MN). That town has a St John the Baptist Catholic Church.

    Methinks the mail may get confused.

    Three churches on the same State Road in Indiana, all 5 miles apart. As you are driving south, you come to them in this order...

    Good Hope BC

    New Hope BC

    Blessed Hope BC


    I guess it just gets better as you go south!

    There's a Compromise Baptist Church in the next county over.

    Name of a small community, I think.

    Let me guess, modern Bible versions?
    "It is not for us to say who, in the deepest sense, is or is not close to the spirit of Christ. We do not see into men's hearts. We cannot judge, and are indeed forbidden to judge. It would be wicked arrogance for us to say that any man is, or is not, a Christian in this refined sense….When a man who accepts the Christian doctrine lives unworthily of it, it is much clearer to say he is a bad Christian than to say he is not a Christian." --C.S. Lewis

    "Seeker sensitive" Evangelical churches can have even weirder names. In college, I went to a church called The Revolution. The same organization had churches with names like The Rock and H20.
