Meet Southern Baptists
For almost 175 years, Southern Baptists have sought to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people everywhere.
The Southern Baptist Convention was formed with a Gospel vision. Its founding charter identifies its singular focus: . . . for the purpose of eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the Baptist denomination of Christians, for the propagation of the Gospel.
The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) 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. Though as many as two hundred could be counted as “mega-churches,” the vast majority of Southern Baptist churches run less than two hundred in weekly worship. No two Southern Baptist churches are alike; but there are certain commonalities that bind Southern Baptists together, regardless of race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, language, size, or locale. What we offer here is an overview to help tell the story of what God is doing in and through the people called Southern Baptists.
Louisiana Baptists are a statewide association of over 1,600 Baptist churches connected through a common mission. These churches minister both separately and cooperatively to reach our common goal:
"to help every person find help, hope and encouragement in the midst of a busy world."
Louisiana Baptists churches are connected with more than 40,000 other Southern Baptist Churches throughout the United States. This is a voluntary network with ministry in more than 105 countries worldwide.
The state offices are located at 1250 MacArthur Drive, Alexandria, Louisiana.
Our association works hard to strengthen and preserve the gospel in south Louisiana. We are a group of independant, cooperating churches that seek to serve our community though the mission and calling of our Lord Jesus Christ.
