DALLAS (BP) — “Could it be that we have considered baptism to be the finish line and not the starting line?” Robby Gallaty asked messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention in Dallas.
“Could it be that we have spent a lot of our time teaching people what they’re saved from, and we haven’t spent time teaching people what they’re saved for?”
Gallaty set forth the recommendations of a Disciple-making Task Force during the June 13 report of the North American Mission Board at the SBC annual meeting. Gallaty is a Tennessee pastor who has chaired the task force since it was commissioned two years ago by NAMB and LifeWay Christian Resources.
