Sounds like they are a bit to the left of most of CBF; they appear to be welcoming and affirming, and they list Alliance of Baptists first among their current affiliations. As a church claiming Rauschenbusch should, I think.

Ed: Having been acquainted with MRTRO for for 8 years through our mutual participation in the BFN and their hosting three of our regional meetings in that time. I could agree that they are somewhat to the left of some in CBF on some social (peace and Justice) issues, however i find that theologically they are comfortably in the mix. Am not sure the Alliance of Baptist have any more right to the Rauschenbusch name than CBF or ABC-USA. And I have friends who participate in all all three, literally.
