Baptists form a major branch of Protestantism distinguished by baptizing professing Christian believers only (believer's baptism), and doing so by complete immersion. Baptist churches also generally subscribe to the doctrines of soul competency (the responsibility and accountability of every person before God), sola fide (salvation by just faith alone), sola scriptura (scripture alone as the rule of faith and practice) and congregationalist church government.
There are Baptist Church, Catholic Church, and the Protestant Church in Switzerland. Yet, one can find many numbers of catholic churches in the main cities and suburban areas of Switzerland.
