The Urgency of Our Calling

 
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:9
 

Across our Fellowship, Cooperative Baptists are partnering to renew God's world. We are called and equipped to spread the hope of Jesus Christ. Whether we're working to alleviate poverty, lifting the voiceless or helping families get back on their feet after a disaster, we and those with whom we minister experience renewal.

And the mission Jesus has given us has never been so urgent.
