‘Great Commission’ descriptor approved by SBC messengers

The Baptist Press reported that messengers approved the recommendation from the SBC Executive Committee that “those churches, entities and organizations in friendly cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention” which desire to use a descriptor other than “Southern Baptists” to indicate their involvement in the convention consider using Great Commission Baptists. 

The phrase, messengers agreed, is commended “as one fully in keeping with our Southern Baptist Convention identity.” 

The legal name of the convention will remain “Southern Baptist Convention.”
