Texas Baptist Standard publishes on-line edition

DALLAS (BP)–The Baptist Standard, weekly newsjournal of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, will be published on the Internet beginning with the May 21 edition, Editor Toby Druin has announced.
At first, the cyber Standard will be a condensed version of the printed edition, Druin said.
“Initially, we will carry our lead stories, the week’s editorial and the plan of salvation — how a person can know Jesus Christ as Savior,” Druin said.
Visitors to the Standard’s site on the World Wide Web also will receive information about how to subscribe to the paper’s print version.
“The Internet version is not going to replace the Standard Baptists are used to getting in their mailbox, although soon we plan to offer an Internet subscription, where all of each week’s issue can be read on a computer screen,” Druin said.
The Standard’s Internet address is www.baptiststandard.com.
“For more than 100 years, the Baptist Standard has been Texas Baptists’ window on the denominational world,” Druin noted. “In putting the Standard on the Internet, we are continuing to do what is required to get the news and feature stories about Baptists into the hands of more people who need to know who Texas Baptists are and what they are doing in Jesus’ name.”
