Southern Baptist Convention's meeting theme is announced
Convention president Johnny Hunt announced the theme for the annual meeting this week.
The Baptist Press reported that Hunt said he hopes the LoveLoud emphasis will “challenge our denomination to demonstrate to our communities, our country and around the world the difference Jesus Christ makes in our lives and in our churches.”
“This world has HEARD much from the church about who we are and what we believe. Too often they don’t SEE the church as being a different entity than others in their communities.
“The church simply has to become more of a force to penetrate the darkness that is increasing in our world,” Hunt told the Baptist Press.
Registration is now open for the meeting where the 150th anniversary of the founding of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary also will be celebrated.
