HUNTSVILLE (TAB) — Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, ended the afternoon session of the Alabama Baptist Pastors Conference. He pointed listeners to Genesis 1:1, “the most important verse in the Bible,” Patterson said because “if God is not the Creator of heaven and earth, than anything goes. … We want to see our baptisms skyrocket, folks, all we have to do is take them to the message from Genesis 1–3. And you won’t be able to keep your heart down and your mouth shut. You’ll have to start witnessing to people.”
