(Louisville, KY) - A Louisville church is among four being expelled by the Southern Baptist Convention.
The churches were ousted Tuesday with the SBC's executive committee saying the churches are no longer in friendly cooperation with the conservative evangelical denomination.
The SBC says St. Matthews Baptist Church was booted for affirming homosexual behavior. St. Matthews Baptist also lost its affiliation with the Kentucky Baptist Convention in 2018 for making financial contributions to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, which lifted a ban on hiring LGBTQ employees.
