Stronger Together, Serving Together, Sending Together – “There is a need for Baptist churches within every state to coordinate and combine their energies for the cause of the Great Commission and the task of reaching the communities in their own state and region. This does not weaken the Southern Baptist Convention—it makes us stronger.”

What is CROSS? – The theological commitments of the Cross Conference, which will happen Dec. 27-30 in Louisville, KY, are outlined here.

Questioning Within the Borders of Faith – Joe Rigney writes for those like him (and me) who have doubted their faith or aspects of the faith. What should we do when we doubt?

“The more we emphasize the inflexible demands of justice and holiness the more marvelous become the love of God and its provisions.” –John Murray
