Viewpoints: What do you think of the new informal ‘Great Commission Baptists’ title for Southern Baptist churches?

At its annual meeting last night, the Southern Baptist Convention decided to stay Southern, officially.

A committee met to consider whether the term “Southern” still fit its mission since there are Southern Baptist-affiliated churches and missions worldwide now.

But the committee decided Southern Baptist churches could choose to use the informal title Great Commission Baptists. It hoped to reinforce the church’s mission to spread the Christian message.

What do you think of this new title? Would your church consider using it?
