Column: Pomona First Baptist goes modern as Purpose Church

It’s been First Baptist Church since 1883, but a few weeks ago, the congregation changed its name to Purpose Church. Why? I ask the question and talk about the history in my Wednesday column.

    I haven’t seen your column yet, but that must be very disturbing to some of the congregants. I can certainly empathize–I still can’t wrap my mind around “Montclair Plaza” becoming “Montclair Place”. Going from “Baptist” to “Purpose” seems almost–like the devil is at work.
