The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) exists for one reason: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). In 1925, the SBC brought its resources together under one banner – the Cooperative Program (CP). Since that time, CP has grown to be one of the most effective and efficient ways of propelling the Gospel.
When resources from 16 million people in 45, 000 Southern Baptist churches are combined, the potential for maximum impact grows.
The Bottom Line—People who are lost hear the Gospel and respond to God’s love.
