Religious Liberty


The Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) states, "Baptists have not been shy in vocalizing their belief that religious liberty is a freedom secured by God (Matt. 22:21). Not coincidentally, Baptists often were at the receiving end of persecution and harassment for their faith from those displeased with their refusal to follow the tenets of state religion."
