I’m no longer Southern Baptist, cutting ties with Lifeway

Author and evangelist Beth Moore.

Popular Bible teacher Beth Moore says she is no longer a Southern Baptist and has ended her longtime partnership with the conservative evangelical denomination’s publishing arm, Lifeway Christian Resources.  

Moore, a critic of former President Donald Trump and an advocate for victims of sexual abuse, told the Religion News Service she is still a Baptist, but not a Southern Baptist anymore. Lifeway and the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., are both headquartered in Nashville. 

“I love so many Southern Baptist people, so many Southern Baptist churches, but I don’t identify with some of the things in our heritage that haven’t remained in the past,” Moore said in the Religion News Service article.
