The Rites of Passage in the Baptist and Unification Churches This religious study will compare and contrast the various rites of passage that the Baptist and Unification Christian sects promote in their ideological principles. One contrasting way in which the Baptists differ from the Unification Church is through the rite of baptism as a way to express one’s loyalty to the faith. While the Unification Church does not believe in baptize to justify one’s faith, both of these sects firmly believe in a patriarchal tradition in the training of pastors in the ministry. In essence, the varying ways in which the Unification Church and the Baptist Church define a Christ ideology will be compared and contrasted in these rites of passage traditions...The end:
