Southern Baptist Convention (Continental)

www.imb.org

Organized in 1845, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) consists of 16 mil lion members in more than 42,000 churches in the United States. Southern Baptists sponsor home missionaries as well as foreign missionaries in 153 nations of the world. The “Southern Baptist Convention” is not actually a denomination, for the term itself refers to its annual meeting. A church can become a member of the Convention through a simple donation of $200 annually. Shades Crest makes such a donation through the Cooperative Program.
