Just as Zurich (Zwinglian) and Geneva (Calvin) found sacramental common ground in the Consensus Tigurinus that united Reformed theology in significant ways, there is a growing rapprochement between Baptists and Churches of Christ. The rise of Baptist sacramentalism and a return to Alexander CampbellĀ’s baptismal theology among Churches of Christ point to areas of convergence between the two. As Baptists move away from radical Zwinglianism and Churches of Christ move away from baptismal positivism, they may find themselves converging in a way that resembles the 1549 Consensus.
