SBC: 'We're not dead'

Reports of declining baptisms and low giving patterns in the ranks of Southern Baptist churches do not necessarily translate into the death of the convention. Before anyone considers funeral arrangements, a trip to the annual convention in Baltimore would be in order.

The tone of the Baltimore event was upbeat. IMB president Tom Elliff reported the highest Lottie Moon offering in history. Frank Page, president and CEO of the SBC Executive Committee, reported that the percentage of Cooperative Program gifts was slightly up last year, after 30 years of decline. North American Mission Board president, Kevin Ezell, is optimistic about church planting movements in strategic cities, and Southern Baptists are responding positively to the mission opportunities on the home continent.

Reports from our SBC agencies and institutions are upbeat. Fellowship in the convention halls is always valuable. Of course, the pastors' conference and related meetings add heaping doses of inspiration, conviction and challenge.
