A unique belief of the Southern Baptist Convention, is their belief in baptism. There are two beliefs about baptism that sets the Southern Baptist Convention apart from others (Humphreys 37). The first belief is that the only people that can be baptized is believers (Humphreys 37).

Also, there is no evidence of infant baptism in the New Testament (Odle 22).
From the very beginning of time, the Sabbath has been a sacred day. In Genesis “God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation” (Genesis 2:3). The Lord made this clear again when He rescued our ancestors from Egypt and gave Moses the Law saying, “the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God. You shall not do any work, either you, your son or your daughter, your [slaves], your work animal, or the resident alien within your gates” (Exodus 20:10). And again, Ezra the scribe reread the Law to the people and said that as a result of the breaking of the sabbath, “our God has brought all this evil upon us and upon this city” (Nehemiah 13:18).

The Bible explicitly forbids intermarriage, as it says in Deuteronomy 7:3-4: “You shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your daughter to his son, and you shall not take his daughter for your son, for he will cause your child to turn away from after Me and they will worship the gods of others.” In Document #1, Ezra 9:1-3, which is a Jewish source, the Jews do this exactly, as it says: “The people of Israel, and the priests and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites”. The Jews had just been taken out of exile, and failed to isolate themselves from their pagan neighbors, and this failure led the Jews to intermarry. Ezra had just brought over 40,000 people from Babylon to Israel in the 4th century BCE, and the Jews had not a proper Jewish leader. Without a leader to give them a moral compass, the Jews were doomed to sin. The reaction of Ezra was not very helpful at first.
