As Southern Baptists, we believe in cooperating with each other to further the mission of the Gospel locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The effective premise is that if one church gives, we can accomplish a little but if many churches give, we can accomplish much. Therefore, we participate in a program where we cooperate or work collectively within an association, which cooperates with other associations to form a state convention. The state conventions cooperate nationally to form the Southern Baptist Convention. All of our cooperation is geared toward accomplishing common tasks from spreading the Gospel to serving others that are less fortunate. For more information see www.sbc.net/cp/ and https://ncbaptist.org/cooperative-program/.
There are three main cooperative program offerings taken up through the year in Southern Baptist churches. There is an offering in the early fall that is for state missions. 100% of this offering from all the cooperating churches funds the state convention mission projects. For more information The Lottie Moon Christmas offering takes place during the Christmas season. 100% of this offering is for funding missionaries through IMB. For more information see https://www.imb.org/lottie-moon-christmas-offering/. The third main offering collected is at Easter and is the Annie Armstrong Easter offering. 100% of this offering is given to NAMB to fund North American Missionaries.
