Working TogetherJuly 10, 2006
Ethics Daily has my latest article today on the Baptist General Convention of Missouri being unanimously accepted as a member body of the Baptist World Alliance. This piece can also be found at the BGCM's website.
This is an exciting moment for the BGCM. The BWA unites more than 200 Baptist bodies representing more than 80 million worshippers around the world for fellowship, ministry, worship and the defense of human rights and religious freedom.
In a time when many denominations seem to be on the verge of splitting or at losing some churches, it is always refreshing to see Christians working together. Jesus prayed that we would be one. It is time for Christians to come work together to share the love of Jesus.
As the BWA slogan reminds us, we have "One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism."
