The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the nation’s largest evangelical denomination, has severed ties with the District of Columbia Baptist Convention (DCBC), after the Washington, D.C. church group refused to discipline a church under its jurisdiction that had hired a pair of lesbian co-pastors.
In February the SBC’s Executive Committee issued the DCBC a 90-day ultimatum to remove all congregations in its fellowship that “practice affirming, approving, or endorsing homosexual behavior,” according to Baptist Press News (BP News). The action came after one of the DCBC’s member congregations, Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., voted in January 2017 to call a “married” lesbian couple co-pastors.
