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

5) Uniting the denomination 

As SBC President, Litton said he hopes to “build bridges and not walls.”

"I told my church last week, I said, 'If next Wednesday morning I wake up and I'm just your pastor, I am so good with that.' The highest honor of my life is to pastor a local church. But I also have a deep burden for people that I love. And I want to do whatever I can to help us pull this together. I'm not Superman. I have no magic,” he said. 

"But I know this person, and His name is Jesus. And they know Him too. And so I think we can find that common ground."
