BOLIVAR, Mo. — During a special session of the Southwest Baptist University Board of Trustees on Jan. 22, the Board voted to affirm its longstanding commitment to traditional Baptist theology, including the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
“We want to reassure Missouri Baptists that our board stands for the same core Biblical values that we all believe and share,” said vice-chair Ryan Palmer. “We are all committed Missouri Baptists.”
This is in addition to a previous affirmation of the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 that has been made by all faculty of the Courts Redford College of Theology and Ministry.
The board also voted to formally accept the commissioning of the Peer Assessment Committee, which previously had been approved by the Executive Board of the Board of Trustees. More information regarding this initiative will be released as it is available.
