A Helpful Overview of the SBC…Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow!

My good friend, Jon Elliff, has written a concise and helpful article concerning SBC life.  In this article, he gives a brief history of who Southern Baptist’s are, where we have come from and where we are going!  The article is not exhaustive, but it is very helpful, especially in light of all the “chatter” going on concerning the Great Commission Resurgence Task Force (GCRTF).  I hope you will take the time to read this post and supply your comments and reflections concerning its contents.  I also hope you will join me in praying for the SBC; that God will bring awakening to His Church regarding our great privilege of being His witnesses in Jersalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.
