The Baptist Faith & Message 2000: A Confession of Faith

The Baptist Faith & Message 2000 serves as a guide to Southern Baptist perspectives, and each Missouri Baptist church is free to adopt this confession of faith or create its own.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Ethnic Conciliation

Our vision as the missionary staff of the Missouri Baptist Convention is to transform lives and communities with the gospel. We pursue this vision by cooperating with all Missouri Baptists to make disciples, multiply churches, and develop leaders. And we carry out this mission in submission to biblical authority, which sets the standards for diversity and ethnic conciliation.
