Installed a little more than a year ago, Pastor Lloyd Streeter is no longer the co-pastor of the Campus Church in Pensacola, FL. According to one blogger, the announcement was made on Wednesday, February 13 at the Campus Church. Here is a statement that was read at the church he previously pastored (First Baptist of LaSalle, IL):
Pastor Streeter resigned his position at Pensacola Christian College and [the] Campus Church because of doctrinal differences. These doctrinal differences involve such things as repentance for salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the origin and nature of the Church, the composition of the Rapture, the placement of the Judgment of Old Testament saints, and the nature of the Kingdom. Generally, these doctrines are part of dispensational truth. Also, Pastor Streeter believes in being militant for the faith and thus he is a fundamentalist. The Hortons disagree with this stand.
The Streeters have moved to Lake City, FL, some 300 miles east of Pensacola, where they have purchased a home.
The Streeters do not wish any ill for PCC or the church. In fact, the Streeters wish the Hortons, the college, and the church well. They part as friends, but Pastor Streeter cannot stay where he cannot preach the whole counsel of God.
Pastor Streeter was my wife’s pastor through her childhood and teenage years, and he performed our wedding in 2000. My theological disagreements with him notwithstanding, I am particularly appreciative for the manner in which he directed our wedding ceremony to be a true worship service. I wish him and his wife the best as they move forward.
