The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is still heavily involved in the Messianic Jewish movement—no surprise there, given that they remain dedicated to converting Jews to Christianity. Here’s a photo from an affiliated service held right before the 2011 SBC Annual Meeting in June:
“Ric Worshill, left, a police chaplain in Lindenhurst, Ill., and David Foster, a member of Beit Yuash Shem [sic] of Meridian, Miss., worship during the meeting of the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship at CrossPoinTempe Church in Tempe, Ariz. The services were held Saturday, June 11 prior to the start of the June 14-15 Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Ariz.”
The Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship, by the way, has a membership of just over thirty congregations and twenty ministries with names like “Tikvat L’Chaim” and “Congregation Adat Shalom.” And that’s not counting the congregations I mentioned earlier that are part of the SBC itself.
(Oh, and how funny is it that the SBC website misspelled “Yeshua?”)
