Ethos of the Baptist Religious Community: A Case-study
Sociology
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
The goal of the research is to understand: why do people abandon a culturally dominant secular world of consumption with its promises of outer-oriented personal self-actualizing and arbitrarily impose religious restrictions on themselves, why they follow prohibitions and change their way of life. Object of the study: members of the Baptist Church in Moscow. Subject of the study: ethos of the religious community of Baptists. The project is dedicated to identifying the features of Baptism, which allow them to attract new members, as well as to maintain the high involvement of those who already are in the ranks of the church. Moreover, the study touches on such important issues for sociology as: why do people prefer the region of modern reality that people find in religion, what makes them join the community, how does a group of people separated from the main world with their religious beliefs.
