MEMPHIS, Tenn. (BP)--Expressing displeasure over what they call a â€œnarrowing of cooperation through exclusionary theological and political agendasâ€� in the Southern Baptist Convention, a group of Southern Baptist conservatives issued a document May 3 calling on the convention to repent of such behavior.
Called the â€œMemphis Declaration,â€� the 990-word document is the culmination of two days of discussions involving about 31 Southern Baptists from a variety of perspectives. Much of the concern expressed by participants was motivated by recent developments at the SBCâ€™s International Mission Board and with other SBC entities and leaders.
