We are Partnering to Renew God's World
Across CBF, Cooperative Baptists are partnering to renew God's world. God calls us and equips us to spread the hope of Jesus Christ to the least evangelized, most marginalized people on earth. Whether we're feeding the hungry, lifting up the voiceless, digging for water or helping families get back on their feet after a disaster, we and those with whom we minister experience renewal.
