Episcopal Baptists in Georgia

Episcopal Baptists in Georgia June 20, 2013

Interesting article in CT about an Episcopal Baptist denomination in Georgia. No, not Georgia the American State, but Georgia the European nation.

According to William Yoder:

“There is a solemn procession to the altar. The choir is chanting. A bishop in a long, black robe and a full, gray beard swings an incense burner back and forth. We bow. We cross ourselves. It’s a typical Sunday service at the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia.

“Yes. Baptist.”

That is how Alexander Cuttino, an American pastor, recently described worship at the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia (EBCG), a denomination famous for its unusual method of contextualizing the gospel. The man behind those efforts: Malkhaz Songulashvili, archbishop of the EBCG.

It an interesting article about a group with an odd mix of Baptist theology, Eastern spirituality, and egalitarian views of ministry. Very intriguing story about its leader Malkhaz Songulashvili too. Steve Harmon also has a right up about the group too.
