Ethics & Religious Liberty Committee

Thank you for visiting the Ethics & Religious Liberty Committee (ERLC) home page. In these challenges times within the culture, how can Christians make an impact with the Gospel?

Many churches in Oklahoma have established an ERLC committee or contact within their congregation, to help make them aware of critical moral and ethical issues that affect Christian life.

At the state level, the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma’s ERLC Committee, which consists of committee members elected by BGCO annual meeting messengers and select BGCO staff, exists to alert and serve as a resource for Oklahoma’s Southern Baptist Churches and Associations regarding moral and ethical issues that affect families, churches, communities and the nation.

At the national level, the Southern Baptist Convention, through the Cooperative Program, sponsors the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. Led by president Dr. Russell D. Moore, the ERLC seeks to awaken, inform, energize, equip and mobilize Christians to be the catalysts for the biblically-based transformation of their families, churches, communities and the nation.

We sincerely hope this web page offers resources to your church that are edifying and useful. We would love to serve with you and stand ready to assist your church.

Sincerely in Christ


Brian Hobbs
Editor, Baptist Messenger
ERLC Committee Liaison for the BGCO

Sanctity of Life Sunday

As Southern Baptists, we have strongly held beliefs, grounded in Scripture, regarding the sanctity and value of all human life. We believe every person’s life, from conception to natural death, is created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27).

Rose Day

Each year, hundreds gather at the Capitol at the beginning of the new legislative session to promote and support the lives of unborn babies by meeting with their state senators and representatives and presenting them red roses, which represent the sanctity of the unborn.
