The major order of ministry/business at the SBC Annual meeting 6/20/12 was the discussion and adoption of Resolutions.
Some of you will remember when Resolutions were discussed, edited and adopted at EFCA Conferences. Like our Resolutions, they represent the decision of a specific Conference but are non-binding. Thus, they are descriptive, not prescriptive.
There were nine Resolutions before the Convention, which you can read at the link above.
AN AFFIRMATION OF A “SINNER’S PRAYER” AS A BIBLICAL EXPRESSION OF REPENTANCE AND FAITH
ON COOPERATION AND THE DOCTRINE OF SALVATION
ON “SAME-SEX MARRIAGE” AND CIVIL RIGHTS RHETORIC
ON BIBLICAL SCHOLARSHIP AND THE DOCTRINE OF INERRANCY
ON PROTECTING RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
AFFIRMING HUMAN NEEDS MINISTRY AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT BY LOCAL CHURCHES
ON AFRICAN AMERICAN CONTRIBUTIONS TO AMERICAN BAPTIST HISTORY
ON 200 YEARS OF BAPTIST MINISTRY IN LOUISIANA
