Forming Bold Faith
Ephesians 4:11-16

Join Cooperative Baptists from across the country and around the world at the 2020 CBF General Assembly at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, June 22-27.

This year’s Assembly is all about Forming Bold Faith. Consider with us all the ways that we form bold faith—a faith that is substantial and sustainable. Through worship, partner meals, workshops, state and regional meetings and many other exciting opportunities we will form bold faith together.

Forming Bold Faith is the work of pastors and parents, teachers and lay leaders, and is all part of God’s blueprint to equip and to reach “unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature.” This, so we are confident in what we know and are not prone to the shifting winds of things that would derail us from faith, our bold faith.
