‘Third way’ church disfellowshipped from SBC

NASHVILLE (BP, TAB) — The Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) voted Sept. 23 to withdraw fellowship from New Heart Community Church, La Mirada, Calif. This decision was made because some of the members of New Heart Community, including the pastor, believe that “same-sex marriage can be blessed by God.” This is first time the Executive Committee (EC) has withdrawn fellowship on behalf of the SBC. EC President Frank S. Page issued a statement stating that Southern Baptists love homosexuals and want them to repent and trust Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
