To Which Religion Does the Duggar Family Belong?

The Duggar family featured in the TV show "19 Kids and Counting" belong to the Independent Baptist Christian religion. Independent Baptists have branched off the Baptist religion due to the changes in values happening in the Baptist Church.

Independent Baptists are more conservative than the modern Baptist church. Some of the values of this religion include purity and modesty. The Duggar family avoids the use of birth control due to the belief that God is the one who should determine the number of children they have. The family also homeschools the children and supports chaperoned dates in accordance with their Independent Baptist views.
