From the Paper:

''Franklin Baptist Church is located at 208 North High Street in Franklin, Virginia and believes that every member is a minister (Franklin Baptist Church, 2009). Franklin Baptist is not only a Baptist church, but also a Ministry. The members of the church are extremely active within the community, both locally in Virginia and around the world as well. All Saints seems to, at least from my perspective, put less emphasis on the works of the Holy Spirit, such as healings, laying on of hands, and speaking in tongues than Franklin Baptist; and more emphasis on reading God's word, praying, and fellowship. Also, it is an unspoken rule at All Saints that silence is to be observed while the Monsignor is preaching; whereas, auditory confirmation is encouraged at Franklin Baptist.''
