Sarah Palin and Her Church

Some more resources of information:

Here is a Newsweek article from last week about Wasilla Bible Church. Like the New York Times article I cited a few days ago, it's a relatively liberal publication which still comes across making Palin look like a conservative churchgoer.

Here is the website of Wasilla Bible Church, Palin's current home church. According to the Newsweek article, Sarah Palin was baptized as an infant in the Roman Catholic church, began attending the Assembly of God church in her teens....

"Todd Stafford, an associate pastor at Wasilla Assembly of God, says Palin often publicly thanks Riley--now nearly 80 and still working as a prison chaplain--for bringing her to Jesus when she visits the church. She attended that Pentecostal church until she was 38 years old, when she switched to Wasilla Bible Church, saying she preferred the children's ministries there."
The church's statement of faith can be viewed here. Although some of us would be inclined to add to it or rephrase a little bit here or there, it will be recognized as orthodox by those of us who are fundamental baptists.

Here is a link to my first post on this topic
