Online Registration Is Now Open
Online registration is now open for messengers to the 2016 Convention Annual Meeting at Calvary Baptist Temple in Savannah on November 14 and 15.
With Cooperative Program gifts through the Georgia Baptist Convention from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, a church may qualify to send messengers. The number of messengers is based on amounts given, according to Article II of our Constitution (see below). Mission congregations may request messengers to be
registered through their sponsoring church as they do not qualify for messengers directly.
Article II. Membership
Section 1. This body shall be composed of messengers from cooperating Baptist Churches. A cooperating church is one that gives evidence of its belief in Holy Scripture as its authority in matters of faith and practice and is in harmony and cooperation with the work and purpose of this Convention. A cooperating church does not include a church which knowingly takes, or has taken, any action to affirm, approve, or endorse homosexual behavior.
Section 2. Messengers. Each cooperating church, having contributed through the Convention for the Cooperative Program and Convention causes during the preceding year, shall be entitled to two messengers and to one additional messenger for each $800 contributed through this Convention for the Cooperative Program and Convention causes, but in no case shall any church be entitled to more than fifteen (15) messengers. Section 3. Voting by proxy is not permitted.
