Partnering with CBF

At the core, being Baptist is about freedom.

Freedom in being our own priests, each person responsible for their spiritual understanding and growth. Freedom in access to the Bible and the expectation to read and study God’s revelation. Freedom in autonomy of the local church to determine their manner of following Christ. Freedom in religious liberty and the separation of church and state.

Since the Triennial Convention in 1814, Baptists have chosen to combine their gifts and resources, particularly in the areas of mission and education, believing more can be accomplished together.

At Second, this work continues through our partnership with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF). CBF is a Christian network of individuals and churches that work together to spread the hope of Christ. Through partners all over the globe, CBF supports a wide range of missions and ministries that give people meaningful opportunities to put their faith to action.
