Pinder, Jeffrey Reid, "Forged by Conviction: An Historical Overview of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia" (2010). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 392.
The purpose of this project is to capture the history of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV). The information presented in this dissertation can benefit other state conventions engrossed in overwhelming bureaucracy. The SBCV also serves as a model assisting other state conventions in reclaiming their convention's conservative theological moorings. The organization, structure, and example of the SBCV can help other state conventions in need of either restructuring or revitalization. This project reveals how God providentially guided the SBCV, and as a result of their faithfulness and efforts, the world and prevailing culture has been impacted by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
