In a broad swath of evangelical Christianity, sola scriptura is the norm. In more mainline denominations, there is still an element of tradition that continues, but in the independant, non-denominational churches, it is frequently a great source of pride that they try to "reinvent the wheel" by throwing all preconceptions out and attempting to construct a church solely on what they read in Scripture. Of course, little do they realize that they are merely constructing it out of their interpretations rather than anything else. I attended a church for awhile that had split off another church and they took great pains to ensure that they did not carry over any "traditions" from the prior church. They made up a different order of service, got song books that had different songs, studied the Bible to come up with their own doctrine that was not "tainted" by their prior church. All this was done out of fear that they might be carrying some tradition into the church and they wanted their church to be "based solely on the Bible"
