KENNESAW, Ga. — Two weeks after being kicked out of the Southern Baptist Conference, Towne View Baptist Church celebrated its thirty second anniversary by formally accepting members the SBC believes they need to have turned away. 

One after the other, Pastor Jim Conrad launched seven new members, which within the Baptist custom must be permitted by a majority of the congregation. He didn’t point out that Brockton Bates and his associate Skyler have been homosexual nor that one other new member was transgender. He didn’t must. His church knew who they have been accepting and had spent the final two years coming to phrases with the truth that inclusion for Towne View needed to look completely different than what was required to stay within the SBC, whose bylaws state that “church buildings which act to affirm, approve, or endorse gay conduct could be deemed to not be in cooperation with the Conference.”
