How do Southern Baptists Cooperate? And how does the BFM2000 guard and guide their cooperation? The nature of cooperation in Southern Baptist life is a multi-layered approach to good-faith cooperation for the fulfillment of the Great Commission in our neighborhoods and to the nations. #SBC
I still believe the best days of Southern Baptist Great Commission cooperation are ahead of us, not behind us. For this to be reality, at some point the competition must stop, even to the crowd’s disappointment. We must return to fighting with and for one another instead of against one another. If we are to rise to the Great Commission opportunities God has placed before us in the next generation, we’ll have to walk away from the ring shoulder to shoulder, not knowing or caring who won some of these fights. We were cooperators before we were competitors. Let’s resolve today to be cooperators now, too.
