Coming This Week

The Southern Baptist Convention wrapped up this week in Nashville.  I am grateful to be able to follow the convention from a distance while having the privilege to participate in our Vacation Bible School at Auburn. I was able to listen and watch most of the events that took place.  One of the highlights of the convention was the Vision 2025 that was laid out before us.  This vision is a great way to help us stay focused on our mission of fulfilling the Great Commission.  Here are the 6 parts of this vision:

  1. 500 more missionaries sent through the International Mission Board
  2. 5000 new churches send through the North American Mission Board
  3. “Call out the called” of those whom God is calling to Gospel ministry
  4. Reverse the decline in children and teenage baptism (more on this later)
  5. Increase of Cooperative Program giving
  6. Pray that God would eliminate all instances of sexual abuse and racial discrimination among our churches


Much of what we may read or hear comes through a source of bias (this seems to be a recurring pattern these days).   In other words, please hear me when I say, "Be careful of what you read or hear because there is certainly a faction of society that would want nothing more than to glory in the demise of the Southern Baptist Convention."
I also understand that, like all families, our family of Southern Baptist churches is not without areas of dysfunction and areas where we need to make major improvements.  While the world watches, transparency in personal character and integrity in holding strong and true to Biblical teachings in every area of life are on display.  This should certainly be true of every church leader in the SBC and those who lead us on large platforms and oversee our major entities.   It is time to be sure we stay on track and focus on doing just that, all without hitting the panic button.
Pray for your leaders.  Pray for Ed Litton, our new SBC president.  I stand among those who believe in the SBC.  Sending missionaries, equipping Gospel preachers, evangelizing the nations, starting churches local and abroad, discipling believers, baptizing new believers, are all the foundation of who we are.  I pray we remain focused on those efforts in the days to come.  

I look forward to worshipping the Risen Savior with you on Sunday…Jimmy Henry
