Pastor Mike Lehmann - Blog entry - December 17, 2018

Sexual abuse in independent fundamentalist Baptist churches

This past week, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on a disturbing pattern of sexual abuse and cover-ups in independent fundamentalist Baptist churches across the United States. I feel the need to address a few things about this problem.
 
            First, the church I serve as pastor, First Baptist Church of Fargo, North Dakota is not an independent fundamentalist Baptist church. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches of the Dakotas (ABC-D) and the American Baptist Churches-USA (ABC-USA). This affiliation certainly does not guarantee that abuse cannot happen (as no oversight or affiliation can prevent all abuse), however it gives the people of our congregation additional outlets to remedy instances of abuse should they occur. If one has been victimized and the local church chooses to ignore it, they would have the ability to go to another level for assistance. Though it is a standard Baptist belief that each church functions autonomously, there is still organization outside of our local church that can address concerns...
 
 
 
 

Jesus invites you to be a part of his community of believers, and as a disciple share with the world God’s love and grow in that love yourself.  Jesus’ invitation includes sharing the Good News in word and deed as we live with compassion and work for justice in this world.

If you are interested in following Jesus, we encourage you to learn more about him in the Bible. The Gospel of John is a great place to start.  We encourage you to call on the Pastors and tell them of your interest and of your questions. They will help you learn more about Jesus and his promise, “I have come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” John 10:10.

May God’s blessings be upon you in your journey of faith with God.

 

Psalm 118:28-29  - You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

Key text for December 2018:  Psalm 95:1-2 (NIV)

 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.
