After the publication of Missions Leader 2023–24, a theological error was discovered. WMU seeks to share about God’s Word with great care. We aim to speak accurately of what has been revealed by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God. Despite measures to ensure all content is written, edited, and reviewed with biblical accuracy, at times, errors occur. In the Responsive Reading, an erroneous statement was made that said God created Jesus Christ. WMU bases its beliefs on the inerrant, infallible, sufficient, authoritative, unchanging Word of God and stands firmly on passages proclaiming the eternal, uncreated Son of God, including, but not limited to, John 1:1–18; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Philippians 2:4–6; Colossians 1:15–17; and 1 John 1:1–3. These beliefs are also affirmed in the Baptist Faith & Message 2000, which states in Article II about God, “The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.” It further states in Article II, Section B, “Christ is the eternal Son of God.” As such, we have provided a revised Responsive Reading that reflects this understanding of Scripture and the nature of Jesus. We regret this mistake occurred and will continue to enforce strict review of biblical content.
