The North American Baptist Conference

The mission of the North American Baptist Conference is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ at home and internationally. This can best be accomplished as we combine the strength of all member churches. The International Office seeks to support this mission by helping churches and mission fields develop leaders who are able to multiply ministries in their respective settings.

Priorities of the NAB International Office

  • Leadership Development – Leaders need resources and training to maximize their impact in developing disciples.
  • Ministry Multiplication – The effort to assist every NAB church to see the gospel of Christ impact their community and beyond.
  • The Best Cared for Missionaries – Investing in them the resources and support that allows them to fulfill the call of God on their lives.

Diverse and Growing

The North American Baptist Conference is a family of over 400 churches with more than 74,000 worshippers in the United States and Canada. Founded by an immigrant missionary, North American Baptists are a diverse group of believers representing many cultures and languages. You’ll find us worshipping in small rural churches, large auditoriums, schools, storefronts, and homes. In addition we have the privilege of bringing the gospel to five continents (Africa, Asia, South America, Europe and North America) through mission endeavors.

Regional Connections

Each of our local churches chose to be part of the North American Baptist Conference because they wanted to be part of a larger church family focused on making disciples. That decision to cooperate with others is a very important witness to our unity in Christ.

Much of that cooperation can be seen locally through 13 NAB Regions that allow many of our churches to network, maximize resources, and partner on important initiatives.

The Time is Now

We’re humbled that God has chosen us to be a part of His massive redemption story. The moment to dive headlong into the adventure God is calling us to is now. Together, we’ll do all He asks of us and partner for the purpose of expanding His Kingdom.
