Articles on Baptist Border Crossing

March 28, 2009

Several articles came out this week about the upcoming Baptist Border Crossing, which will be held April 2-4 at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. The Word&Way had a good article about the relationships being built and improved as a result of the Baptist Border Crossing. The Springfield News-Leader had a piece earlier this week, and the St. Joseph News-Press had a brief one today. Additionally, the Kansas City Star had a good piece today about the gathering. The article includes comments from Jimmy Carter and Baptist General Convention of Missouri Executive Director Jim Hill. Carter stated:

We're trying to have harmony among traditional Baptists and show that you can have differences on social issues but come together under the phrase that we are 'saved by the grace of God through our faith in Jesus Christ.'

Any Baptist who agrees with that can work in harmony and put aside the things that divide us.
Amen! For more information about next week's gathering, visit There you can find the schedule and information about the speakers and breakout sessions.
