Southern Baptists are a fellowship of over 16.3 million members in approximately 44,223 churches in all 50 states and Canada. These churches work together through approximately 1,182 associations, 41 state conventions, 1 fellowship, and the Southern Baptist Convention to accomplish through voluntary cooperation far more than they could ever do alone.
The Southern Baptist worldwide missions enterprise is funded in large part through the unique, efficient, and equitable Cooperative Program. A portion of the undesignated tithes and offerings of individuals received by SBC churches becomes Cooperative Program dollars.
