WASHINGTON (BP) -- With the inauguration of Russell D. Moore as its new president, the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission has unveiled a new website and logo.

The ERLC's newly designed website went live Tuesday (Sept. 10), the same day Moore was inaugurated in Washington, D.C., as the entity's eighth president. The trustees elected Moore to lead the ERLC in March, and he took office in June. (Baptist Press will post a story on the inauguration on Wednesday, Sept. 11.)

The website's goal, Moore says in a video on the site, is to equip Southern Baptists and other Christians "to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness."

Some of the things Jesus as king has commanded and called His followers to do "are very easy" and some "are hard to think through, especially in a confusing culture and time like ours," Moore says.

"So on this website," he says, "you will find audio and video and print resources meant to equip your church and your family to think through: What does it mean to follow Christ in the workplace? What does it mean to follow Christ in my living room or at my dining room table? What does it mean to follow Christ when conversing with my neighbors who disagree with me on issues? And what does it mean to follow Christ when we're making decisions about voting -- tough national, international questions?"

The website includes the ERLC's new logo, which features images of a crown at the center, an open book below and three stars above. The crown symbolizes the Kingdom of God; the book signifies the Bible; and the stars stand for the state or government. The number of stars, three, represents the entity's emphases: Kingdom, culture and mission.

The site has four channels: Life; liberty; family; and culture. It includes pages that provide biblical perspectives, news articles and resources on such moral, social and religious freedom issues as adoption, homosexuality, human trafficking, persecution, pornography and race.

The design is intended to make the site friendly to users and to include timely updates on developments in the fields of ethics and religious liberty, according to the ERLC. The site also includes the ERLC's Twitter feed.

The website is accessible at
