Baptists are individuals who comprise a group of Christian denominations and churches that subscribe to a doctrine that baptism should be performed
only for professing believers, believer's baptism, as opposed to infant baptism, and that it must be done by complete immersion, as opposed to effusion
or sprinkling. Other tenets of Baptist churches include soul liberty, salvation through faith alone, Scripture alone as the rule of faith and practice, and
the autonomy of the local congregation. Baptists recognize two ministerial offices, elders and deacons. Baptist churches are widely considered to be
Protestant churches, though some Baptists disavow this identity.

Diverse from our beginning, those identifying as Baptists today differ widely from one another in what we believe, how we worship, their attitudes toward
other Christians, and their understanding of what is important in Christian discipleship.

Historians trace the earliest church labeled "Baptist" back to 1609 in Amsterdam, with English Separatist John Smyth as its pastor. In accordance with
his reading of the New Testament, he rejected baptism of infants and instituted baptism only of believing adults. Baptist practice spread to England,
where the General Baptists considered Christ's atonement to extend to all people, while the Particular Baptists believed that it extended only to the
elect. In 1638, Roger Williams established the first Baptist congregation in the North American colonies. In the mid-18th century, the First Great
Awakening increased Baptist growth in both New England and the South. The Second Great Awakening in the South in the early 19th century increased
church membership, as did the preachers' lessening of support for abolition and manumission of slavery, which had been part of the 18th-century
teachings. Baptist missionaries have spread their church to every continent.

50 Years
Since The Beginning
1966 - 2016

REMI Reverend Eric Michel Independent
Archbishop or Episcopi Vaganti

Episcopi vagantes (singular: episcopus vagans), Latin for wandering bishops or stray bishops, are those
persons consecrated, in a "irregular way", as Christian bishops outside the structures and not in communion
with any generally recognized churches, but part of a new religious movements, specifies that now episcopi
vagantes are "those independent bishops who collect several different lines of transmission of apostolic
succession, the general term for "wandering" clerics, as were common in the Middle Ages, is clerici vagantes;
the general term for those recognising no leader is acephali.

Teachings on the nature of Apostolic Succession vary depending on the ecclesiastic body, especially within
various Protestant denominations. Christians of the Church of the East, Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox
Church and the Roman Catholic Church all recognize the validity of each other's apostolic succession. Among
he previously mentioned churches opinions vary as to the validity of succession within Old Catholic, Anglican,
Moravian, and Lutheran communities. Roman Catholics deny the validity of all Sacraments by Protestant
Churches with an "episcopal polity" whilst the Church of the East has very little stance on the matter entirely.
Opinions within the Orthodox churches are often inconclusive. Episcopal Protestants typically recognize the
validity of the four traditional apostolic churches.

In the beginnings of the Methodist movement, adherents were instructed to receive the sacraments within the
Anglican Church since the Methodists were still a movement and not as yet a separate church in England until
1805; however, the American Methodists soon petitioned to receive the sacraments from the local
preachers who conducted worship services and revivals. The Bishop of London refused to ordain Methodist
priests and deacons in the British American colonies. John Wesley, the founder of the movement, was reluctant
to allow unordained preachers to administer the sacraments:

We believe it would not be right for us to administer either Baptism or the Lord's Supper unless we had a
commission so to do from those Bishops whom we apprehend to be in a succession from the Apostles.
~John Wesley, A.D. 1745


Eric Michel Ministries International
By it's own follower to declare being Multi-Denominational
Embracing the teaching and traditions of the Baptists, Evangelicals, Methodists and Pentecostalisms movement.

EMMI use the episcopal polity of ecclesiastical governance because "the sole guarantor of apostolic faith,
which includes apostolic life, is the Holy Spirit."

Argumentation:
The doctrine of apostolic succession is believing that it is neither taught in Scripture nor necessary for
Christian teaching, life, and practice. Accordingly, the Protestants strip the notion of apostolic      
succession from the definition of "apostolic" or "apostolicity." To be apostolic is simply to be in submission
to the teachings of the original twelve apostles as recorded in Scripture. This doctrinal stance reflects the
Protestant view of authority, embodied in the doctrine known as Sola Scriptura. Nowhere in Scripture did
Jesus, the apostles, or any other New Testament writer set forth the idea of “apostolic succession.”  and
neither is Peter presented as “supreme” over the other apostles.

All Christians who have a genuine relationship with God through and in Christ are part of the
"true Church", according to exemplary statements of evangelical Protestant theology, notwithstanding
condemnation of the Catholic Church by some Protestants.  Based on tradition or based on scripture, of
merely human institutions. Such claims can be found among the worldwide community of Christians. All
appear to treasure the truth that liberates, and Jesus taught his followers to love one another.

Among the first who rejected the doctrine of apostolic succession were John Calvin & Martin Luther

Baptist successionism is one of several theories on the origin and continuation of Baptist churches. The
theory postulates an unbroken lineage of churches, since the days of John the Baptist, who baptized
Jesus which have held beliefs similar to those of current Baptists

EMMI ordination are biblically valid. We asserted that the Book of Common Prayer as a whole contained a
strong sacrificial theology in the ordinal.
