Partners In Renewing God’s World

“As Cooperative Baptists, our core purpose is to partner in renewing God’s world. God calls and equips us to spread the hope of Jesus Christ to the least evangelized, most marginalized people on earth. Whether we’re feeding the hungry, lifting up the voiceless, digging for water or helping families get back on their feet after a disaster, we and those with whom we minister experience renewal.

Renewing is spiritual. It’s a movement that takes faithful believers and active participants—participants who don’t just “talk the talk,” but are truly God’s presence in the world.”
