Commission’s Convention Seminar Explores Transgenderism


The Commission for Theological Integrity will hold their annual Theological Integrity seminar on the topic of transgenderism. W. Jackson Watts, a member of the Commission and pastor of Grace Free Will Baptist Church in Arnold, Missouri, will be the presenter. The seminar will take place on Monday afternoon in the Kentucky Center’s Bomhard Theater from 2:00-3:30pm. Most Free Will Baptists have been increasingly aware of the influence of transgenderism. The Commission hopes to equip attendees to understand it as a phenomenon, and help them discover how to effectively minister to persons who identify as such or who are confused by the subject as a whole.

Discipleship in Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspective

by Theological Commission

At last week’s National Association meeting in Grand Rapids, the Commission for Theological Integrity was pleased to sponsor our annual Convention seminar on the subject of discipleship. The subject was of great interest to many, which was evidenced by the large turnout. Dr. Robert Picirilli and Reverend Michael Locklear both gave substantial presentations which we are now making available to followers of the Commission blog.

You may listen to Dr. Picirilli’s presentation of “Discipleship in Biblical & Theological Perspective” by clicking here, or you may download the outline of his presentation by clicking here. You may also purchase a copy of Picirilli’s Discipleship: The Expression of Saving Faith (Randall House, 2013) by clicking here. Next Tuesday, Reverend Locklear’s presentation on the pastoral dimensions of discipleship will be available.
