Russell Moore inaugurated as new ERLC president

WASHINGTON — Russell D. Moore was inaugurated as the new president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) on Sept. 10 in a ceremony at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington. He was elected in March and took office in June.

Members of Congress, at least one Obama administration official, religious leaders, advocacy organization representatives and most of the Southern Baptist Convention’s entity heads participated or observed as Moore received encouragement and challenges from speakers in a service marked by hymn singing, Bible reading and prayer.

The ERLC addresses moral, social and church-state issues — and their public policy implications — on behalf of Southern Baptists, but Moore said in his inaugural address the gospel is the focus of the entity’s charge. 

The mission of God’s people and the ERLC, Moore said, “is not simply to speak about what the law of God has revealed. It is not simply to speak of the ethical norms that the Scripture has given to us. It is to speak primarily with the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
