La. Baptists highlight soul-winning emphasis

ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP) -- During their annual meeting highlighting a statewide soul-winning emphasis for 2017-2018, Louisiana Baptists heard various ministry reports that included disaster relief efforts following record flooding in the state. And Louisiana messengers defeated a motion for a 2018 move toward a 50/50 Cooperative Program split with Southern Baptist Convention causes. Messengers also referred a motion regarding concerns with the SBC's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission to the Louisiana Baptist Convention's Executive Board. Approximately 600 messengers registered for the state convention's Nov. 14-15 meeting that was held at Calvary Baptist Church in Alexandria.
