Description: The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches who share a passion for the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice. Our mission is to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission.

Made up of individuals and approximately 1,800 affiliated churches seeking to be the presence of Christ, the Fellowship serves a larger renewal movement among Baptists. Partnering with 15 theological schools, 18 autonomous state and regional organizations and more than 150 ministry organizations worldwide, CBF has an annual budget of $14.5 million and is based in Atlanta.

According to the CBF Constitution and Bylaws, affiliation is measured by contribution. Any church or individual who sends a contribution of any amount is considered a member of the Fellowship with voting rights at the annual General Assembly.
