(Protestia) In a historic win for conservative Southern Baptists that echoes the conservative resurgence 40 years earlier, messengers at the 2023 Annual Meeting approved a motion to amend Article 6 of the Baptist Faith and Message 2000, clarifying the roles of women and clearly and unambiguously barring them from holding any pastoral roles- whether it be senior pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor, or children’s pastor.
Introduced by Mike Law of Virginia’s Arlington Baptist Church, a man made busy sounding the clarion call over the presence of thousands of women pastrixes that have snuck into the denomination, the amendment was approved with around 80% of the vote. It now reads:
In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its two scriptural offices are that of pastor/elder/overseer and deacon. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor/elder/overseer is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.
