Meet Southern Baptists

Meet Southern Baptists

The Southern Baptist Convention is a network of autonomous churches voluntarily banded together to engage in missions enterprises and ministry activities designed to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord. Cooperation requires trust; it requires commitment; it requires confidence that God's purposes are bigger than what we can accomplish individually. We believe it is a wonderful thing to be part of what God is doing through Southern Baptists and commend the Convention and its work to you. Learn more about us
