Baptist Identity at 400

As many of our readers know, 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of the Baptist movement. In honor of this historic year, Doug Baker of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina recently conducted a Koinonia Podcast on the topic “Baptist Identity at 400.” The panelists for the podcast include the following:

James Leo Garrett, Distinguished Professor of Theology Emeritus at Southwestern Seminary

David Dockery, President of Union University

Greg Wills, Professor of Church History and Director of the Center for the Study of the Southern Baptist Convention at Southern Seminary

Nathan Finn, Assistant Professor of Church History and Baptist Studies at Southeastern Seminary

In related news, you may be aware that Doug Baker has recently been selected as the executive editor of the Baptist Messenger, the official paper for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. You can read the about that news here. We at BtT hate to see Doug leave our fair state, but we are thankful for the strategic ministry the Lord has opened up for him among Oklahoma Baptists. Many North Carolina Baptists have commented in recent days that Oklahoma’s gain is our loss, but since we don’t hold grudges, we wish Doug every blessing in Christ.
