Bridge Out
by Rev. W. Allen Thomason
The bridge over the creek is out. It has been ever since I moved here two years ago.
Last Saturday, I arrived at church to find a massive mound of garbage on our parking lot, surrounded by trucks from Waster Management and a couple of fire engines.
Rudy Camacho, a longtime leader in both the Baptist General Convention of Texas and the Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas, will be nominated for first vice president of the BGCT this fall.

Etica y Misiones
By Joe E. Trull
Ethics and missions. How do they relate?

Debbie Ferrier, a layperson with extensive involvement in church and denominational endeavors, will be nominated for second vice president of the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
The coordinator of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Mississippi (CBF-MS) warned Southern Baptists of the dangers of fundamentalism, and urged them to “find their voice” in taking a stand for freedom and the love of Christ.
Messengers will vote on the creation of a world missions network as a not-for-profit affiliate of the BGCT at the annual state convention in Waco, November 11-12.
I proudly serve as pastor to a multiracial congregation today because of the courageous stand Second Baptist Church, Little Rock, took 45 years ago ...
Uncooperative Baptists
By John D. Pierce

The heartbeat of Baptists has always been missions.


“Texas Baptists need a missionvision that recognizes missions
as the responsibility of everychurch and every Christian.”
