Oppose - Independent Baptist covers a subset of Baptists that meet WP:N. Moreover, the group, while meeting N, is still a small minority of Baptists that can be covered in greater detail in the Independent Baptist article than is appropriate in this more broad article. If you think Independent Baptists is not notable, send that article to WP:AfD. Novaseminary (talk) 03:14, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Oppose - highly notable subsection, and quite different to, for example, Southern Baptists. StAnselm (talk) 04:58, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Merge - The article has not established notability, and it's been a stub for years. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 14:00, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Oppose - Independent Baptists are a significant feature of the Baptist world. DonaldRichardSands (talk) 06:57, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Merge - specifically into the section named "Controversies that have shaped Baptists", as there is no material given in the stub article Independent Baptists that argues for any greater significance of, or indeed difference from, other schismatic sects of Baptism named in that section. yoyo (talk) 06:55, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
Oppose but keep subarticle That section should mention the Independent Baptists; it doesn't. But it shouldn't mention them at greater length than the other denominations within Baptism, which would be undue weight - and most of them are just listed with no details except the issue on which they split. Is someone prepared to expand the section enormously? If not, this is a proposal to throw away information. SeptentrionalisPMAnderson 21:35, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Oppose. The Independent article should be expanded, but not merged. Independent Baptist is as distinct a sub-type as Southern Baptists. Ltwin (talk) 21:41, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Oppose merge. It needs expanded with more sources to explain uniqueness from Southern Baptists. RobinBnn (talk) 19:41, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Their number can add up to a total of close to 100 million adherents in the world through 211 denominations, making Baptists the largest Protestant denomination in the world.
33 is a dead link. Fact - Pentecostalism is Protestant. Pentecostalism, according to the Pentecostalism article one Wikipedia there are 279 Million Pentecostals worldwide. The fact is that the figure of 279 Million is greater than 100 million.Easeltine (talk) 22:05, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
