The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's mission is to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission. At the vanguard of the modern missionary movement, Baptists have been forming together for more than two centuries to make disciples of all nations. The Fellowship supports 120 long-term field personnel serving in 30 countries, 50 Student.Go interns and hundreds of short-term mission teams annually.
Our Mission Distinctives offer Cooperative Baptists common language for our common witness to the Triune God. The commitments reflect the values inherent to the Fellowship's mission engagement, while the contexts focus more intentionally on the work of our Global Missions field personnel. Since the world has come to the doorstep of many of our communities, CBF field personnel live out the following commitments alongside CBF congregations within the contexts of global poverty, global migration and the global church. Learn more about our Mission Distinctives and some of the ways we already see them working around the world here.

In response to a changing church and world, the CBF Missions Council led an 18-month planning process that involved missionary field personnel, CBF state and regional organizations, CBF staff and other stakeholders to produce a comprehensive plan for CBF Global Missions. As others scale back or focus exclusively on short-term missions, CBF is doubling down on its commitment to the long-term presence of missionaries. After more than two decades of Christian witness in 30 countries, CBF stands convinced that there are no shortcuts to making "disciples of all nations" (Mt 28:19). Whether translating the Bible into a previously unwritten language or resurrecting hope in rural America, the transformation we seek requires a patient, incarnational witness with others.
