Biblical Marriage Resources

Marriage

One of the more challenging issues facing Southern Baptists today is same-sex marriage. Churches need to protect themselves legally while showing proper Biblical grace toward the LGBT community.

To assist churches, we have created a marriage resource page on our Kentucky Baptist Convention website that includes the following:

  • Videos from Protecting Biblical Marriage conference held May 22, 2014
  • Sample Marriage/Wedding policies and guidelines
  • Sample Facility Use policies
  • Videos by Richard Nelson, executive director of the Commonwealth Policy Center

If you have any questions, please email me at steve.rice@kybaptist.org or give me a call at  (502) 489-3571.  Also, as you develop resources, please send them to me so we can share them with others.

In my first doctoral class, I wrote an exit paper on the Sunday School.  My thesis for the paper was as follows: “Sunday School is a vital program in the 21st Century Church.” With all the new trends and changes on the current church scene, some have chosen to downplay Sunday School.  In some instances, Sunday […]

The Lord wants us to make an impact in life even when life is difficult.  The Apostle Peter understood that, so he wrote about it in his letter to the believers in northern Asia Minor.  Some of them were present in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost and heard Peter preach, but now they were […]

The past few weeks I have been privileged to travel around Kentucky and speak to several pastors at the annual gathering of their associations.  As I began to pray about what I should share with them, God laid Matthew 28:16-20 on my heart.  Although He had been teaching and modeling “The Great Commission” principles for […]
