HISTORIC – Two of California Baptist State Conventions Reunification

by Robert Earl Houston

Two California Baptist State Conventions, which split as a result of the turmoil in the National Baptist Convention of America and the creation of National Missionary Baptist Convention of America, have agreed to an historic reunification effective in October.

The reunification brings together the California Missionary Baptist State Convention (CMBSC) and the California United Baptist State Convention (CUBSC). Both conventions were as one until the untimely split in 1991 which resulted in the creation of CUBSC. Now, the conventions have agreed to re-unify as one California Missionary Baptist State Convention.

The reunification was initiated by the CUBSC president, Dr. J. Roy Morrison and along with his General Secretary, Dr. Hubbard, they presented their proposal to Dr. E. Wayne Gaddis and the California Missionary Baptist State Convention. Dr. Gaddis stated, “I think it is a God-sent move. I would rather see us come together rather than to be in splinters. Our convention is excited. The other convention is excited. John 17:21 where Jesus says “Let them be as one, as we are one” is an answer to our prayers.”

The CMBSC and CUBSC voted today, January 28, 2015 to begin the process of reunification, which will take affect in October 2015, contingent upon CUBSC meeting certain conditions. The reunited convention will become dually-aligned with both the National Missionary Baptist Convention of America and the National Baptist Convention of America, Inc., International.

Dr. Gaddis will serve as President and an election will be held in October which will complete the reunification process by filling several positions in the cabinet. This will bring the roll of the Convention to over 250 congregations which will make the CMBSC the largest African-American Baptist State Convention west of Texas.

Installation and dinner for Dr Gaddis at the Los Angeles Sheraton

Dr. Clyde Elliott Gaines, served as the President of the California Missionary Baptist State Convention for over 12 years, under his leadership our convention was vibrant and continuously growing.  After his tenure, the Executive Committee voted that
Dr. Gaines, would carry the title of President Emeritus for the California Missionary Baptist State Convention.  Even though he no longer served as President, you would always see Dr. Gaines at every Session along with his wife Barbara Gaines.  He never missed a session, but he was dedicated and committed to our State Convention.

We are truly going to miss Dr. Gaines.  Let us keep First Lady Barbara Gaines, The Gaines family, the Greater Trinity Church family, and our State Convention lifted up in prayer.

Again his wisdom and leadership will be greatly missed.  May the legacy of this great Pastor, preacher, teacher and our friend live on.
