Session XIII: Membership Matters 2 Part 2: What Is the SBC?
[Papu Sandu 10:00am Saturday morning 9/15/07]
This was a great class set up to orient potential members to the denominational affiliation that CHBC is a part of, namely the Southern Baptist Convention.
There was a big emphasis to express that the SBC is a “para-church” organization. The autonomy of the local church is prime in structure in regard to affiliation with many churches…the denomination is a way that different autonomous churches come together to achieve certain ends. Particularly the SBC comes together to provide seminary education and to send out missionaries. If you are interested in learning more about the SBC you can check out their website. Most of this class laid out the organizational structure of the denomination.
