The Southern Baptist Convention has grown to be a network of more than fifty thousand cooperating churches and church-type missions banded together to make an impact for God’s Kingdom.Each Southern Baptist church is autonomous and unique; only when viewed together can one grasp the diversity that is the Southern Baptist Convention.
It allows us to identify with other Christians around the world who are known for their commitment to the Bible. Unlike other groups, the SBC has no man-made “creed”. The Bible is our only authority.
It allows our church to participate in the largest missionary organization in the world. Through the SBC “Cooperative Program”, we help support over 12,000 missionaries engaged with 872 people groups.

Every SBC church chooses its own pastors.
Every SBC church acquires its own buildings and assets.
Every SBC church determines its own programs.
