Think about all the ways that the resurrection of Christ turned the world upside-down.
It birthed the largest people of faith in the world – what we call the church.
It changed our calendars.
The resurrection eventually turned the Roman Empire upside down and created a completely new way of engaging with God. The resurrection announced that the barrier between God and man had been broken and we could walk in grace with Him.
Because of the Good News we celebrate this season, as Louisiana Baptists, we’ve made a commitment to do everything we possibly can to reach our state with this message of grace.
In 2013, we committed to action plans to advance the gospel and assist our churches. We called it 2020. As Easter approaches, it’s a great time to update and remind you on all the ways we as Louisiana Baptists are seeking to change our world. If you are a Southern Baptist and your church gives to the cooperative program, be encouraged that God is working through these efforts.
