Exploring Faiths: The Baptist Branch of the Christian Family Tree
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The world is getting smaller; yet at the same time, the people seem to be growing apart. Therefore, we want to give representatives of Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and many other faith communities the opportunity to educate each other about the richness of their traditions. Exploring Faiths aims to bring people from different faith backgrounds together in harmony and overcome stereotypes between people of different religions.
What is Christianity?
What are Baptists? How are they different?
Where do they come from?
If you are interested in the answers to any of these questions, then this event is for you!
Come join us as we hear Dr. Loyd Allen, professor of church history and spiritual foundation at Mercer University speak on the different types of Christianity, how they came to be and explore a particular type of Christianity: Baptist.
Light refreshments will be available followed by the lecture and then a brief Q&A session.
Suggested donation of $10 at the door.
Seats are limited! Please RSVP now!
When & Where
The Atlantic Institute
Atlantic Institute is an independent, non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta whose goal is to facilitate dialogue and bridge cultures around the globe. For a better world of peace and understanding, we would like to develop public awareness for diverse cultures, beliefs, traditions, and opinions. We strongly believe in the spirit of the United States of America that celebrates diversity as richness. With our branches in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina, we have been able to dedicate our efforts and resources for building cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue.
Atlantic Institute is a non-profit civic organization that provides various academic and educational platforms to promote diversity in our society. We are significantly influenced by the teachings and writings of Mr. Fethullah Gulen who emphasizes the importance of education, dialogue and understanding in cross-cultural engagement. These universal values are esteemed by many previous scholars and leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rumi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This gives us hope and motivation that we can find common denominators as the global citizens of the world.
Through a wide range of activities that bring local community members from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, we seek to proactively contribute to educational, cultural, social, and humanitarian issues in our community. We believe in the power of personal interaction and communicative dialogue as they are the best channels to build mutual understanding, trust, and harmony for a peaceful world.
