The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission exists to assist the churches by helping them understand the moral demands of the gospel, apply Christian principles to moral and social problems and questions of public policy, and to promote religious liberty in cooperation with the churches and other Southern Baptist entities.
The 2017 Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission Ministry Report is the compilation of ERLC’s response to questions, and related reports, and is presented in four separate groupings. These groupings are: President’s letter, Ministry Inquiries, Ministry Goals and Accomplishments, and Financial Management. 1.65% of the 2016/2017 Cooperative Program Budget (National CP Dollars) is allocated to ERLC. Also, we are including a Mid-Year Ministry Update which will be posted in July of 2017.
