The Conservative Baptist Network was formed to bring about “positive, biblical solutions” in the Southern Baptist Convention. The decision by the Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force to hire LGBTQ+-affirming Guidepost Solutions to establish and maintain an SBC “ministry check” website database is neither positive nor biblical and serves as a major impediment to our cooperative work as a convention of churches.

We unequivocally support the published statement by the board of the Florida Baptist Convention and a recent similar action by the leadership of the Ohio Baptist State Convention.

Southern Baptists give millions of dollars per year through SBC channels to fund the Great Commission, not to support sexual depravity. Therefore, we implore the Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force to reverse course on this unfortunate, unacceptable, and untenable decision.
