Four centuries ago a few people began to express their religious convictions in a newly independent way. Their commitment to the liberty of conscience and freedom of expression launched a movement we now know as Baptists.
Logsdon Seminary marks the 400th anniversary of being Baptists by a celebration called Baptists @ 400: Celebrating the Past. Imagining the Future. The celebration involves a two-day conference on October 12th and 13th with two major plenary sessions, worship, and presentations at dinner on Monday and lunch on Tuesday.
The notable Baptist leaders who will speak include Keith Parks, George Mason, Ellis Orozco, Pam Durso, Jesse Fletcher, and several Logsdon faculty members.
