Commission on Doctrine & Christian Unity
Chair: Timothy George Vice Chair: Anna Maffei
The Commission on Doctrine and Christian Unity identifies, reflects on, and clarifies issues of doctrine that are important to Baptists. It analyzes the causes of disunity among Baptists and promotes ways to overcome this disunity. It shares in theological conversations between the BWA and other Christian communities, in furtherance of Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church. It also participates in programs to improve inter-church understanding and cooperation. The Commission makes its findings available to the wider Baptist family.
The 8th Baptist International Conference on Theological Education (BICTE) takes place in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, from June 28-30, 2013. The event will focus on the theme, In Step with the Spirit: Perspectives on Pneumatology within The Worldwide Baptist Family. It will include a wide ranging set of papers and discussions from Baptist leaders, pastors, theologians, and educators from all six regions of the BWA – Africa, Asia Pacific, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America and North America.
