SBC Resolutions

Greg Strand – June 24, 2012 Leave a comment

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

RESOLUTION 1 ON APPRECIATION

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA’s Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
