Special needs ministry a field ‘white unto harvest’ for Snellville church

SNELLVILLE Ga. (BP) – The Church on Main will not soon forget Hannah’s baptism.

Through that device, she told her mother she had committed her life to Christ and wanted to be baptized.

Abuse allegations a blight on Pressler legacy

NASHVILLE (BP) – Paul Pressler is a study in contrasts. To many, he was a hero of the SBC’s Conservative Resurgence, a mastermind of the strategy that helped turn the nation’s largest Protestant denomination back to its conservative theological roots. He was rewarded for that accomplishment with unopposed election as the Convention’s first vice president in 2002.
