    This just in from the Pacific SW.
    Most ABC churches are moderately conservative. There is an increasing number that are unwilling to have liberal (affirming the practice of homosexuality) agendas drive the denomination.

    The process of change will take years, as it did for at least one other denomination. But the process is well under way.

    Please keep your American Baptist brothers and sisters in prayer.

    Thank you Art, and welcome aboard...
    I am a Pastor of a ABC church in the WVBC.
    I under stand that the ABC churches in Kansas are also conservative.

    We need to stand together and defeat Satan.
    It's time we fight back and not turn over our Denomination to the Homosexuals..

    If all conservative regions leave, then that would be the effect.... a Gay denomination.

    I too ask that you keep us ABCs in your prayers.

    Hello TinyTim!
    It's good to hear from you. What is going on in WVBC? I just saw this post on beaconchurches.net:

    Since we voted to not sever our relationship with the ABC-USA, We chose to appoint a working group (a fact-finding team) to explore options and to get a better understanding of the whole issue. The Group is to report to us at our annual meeting in October on what they found.

    I really don't know more than that.
    But I do know that we have been working with other regions on different options.

    My Opinion is that we should fight for what is right, and not run away from the fight.
