Abstract

This is a call to Baptist churches to face their present disagreements over same-sex marriage by being faithful to a Baptist way of being church. Baptists believe that each local church must discern Christ's call. Baptists also believe that local churches have a duty to associate together, and should support each other in this work of discerning Christ's call. This involves listening to one another when they differ.
