Statement regarding chartering of Prism at Baylor student organization by Baylor University

We are aware of the recent chartering of the Prism at Baylor student organization by Baylor University. We have heard concerns expressed by many in the Texas Baptists family and are in the process of communicating those concerns to University leadership. There has been some confusion regarding the group’s chartering, and we are seeking clarification to determine the best course of action moving forward. The BGCT’s position on Human Sexuality and Biblical marriage has not and will not change.

Executive Director Texas Baptists (Baptist General Convention of Texas)
