Wright has said he is concerned the name is too regional and hinders efforts to plant new churches outside of the South. Others outside of church leadership say the name has become a liability because it is too often associated with divisive, partisan politics.

So they just change the name - like Comcast did - and hope people forget who they are? Oy.

Dominionist Theocracy Church
God Hates Everyone But Us Church
Ku Klux Kristians

Or, they could just cut the middle man and go with Tea Party.

Racist Baptist.

No, no, hear me out.

Know how the United Methodist Church is "united"? It's because, before the Civil War, they split into a Northern and Southern contingent, because of the issue of slavery. After the war (some time after), the Methodist church re-united to form the United Methodists.

The Baptists did the same thing. Northern Baptists didn't think that man should enslave other man; Southern Baptists found ways to justify their pro-slavery stance using passages from the Bible. The Southern Baptist Church has never reunited with the churches that split before the Civil War, remaining estranged over, originally, the issue of whether slavery is Biblical.

Racist Baptist Church.

Seriously though, I think Great Commission Baptists is a pretty good name. Get people to remember that serving others is the whole point. They could lose the Baptist part. 's kind of divisive... all just one church.
