'My job is to represent Jesus Christ': 6 things to know about SBC President Ed Litton

1) Theologically and politically conservative

Though Litton has been labeled as “moderate” or “liberal" by some critics, the pastor describes himself as both politically and theologically conservative. 

“I believe in the inerrancy, infallibility and sufficiency of God’s Word,” he said in a statement on Wednesday. “I am pro-life, and I believe that marriage is between a man and woman.”

Though “extremely conservative” politically, Litton said he does not address politics from the pulpit. He believes his calling is to make “good citizens” of his congregants and “challenge them from the Word of God.”

Litton told reporters he will collaborate with political leaders of all parties if asked and would treat political leaders with honor and kindness.

“My job is to represent Jesus Christ wherever I go,” he said.
