 The Cooperative Program 

What is Cooperative Program? 

The Cooperative Program is Southern Baptists’ unified plan of giving through which cooperating Southern Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries.

How Does The Cooperative Program Work? It begins with you! You give yourself first to God (II Cor. 8:5). Next, out of gratitude and obedience to God for what He has done for you, you commit to give back to Him, through your church, a portion of what He provides. This is commonly called a tithe and represents ten percent of your income (Lev. 27:30, Mal. 3:10).

 

Your Church... decides the next step. Every year your church prayerfully decides how much of its undesignated gifts will be committed to reaching people in your state and around the world through The Cooperative Program. This amount is then forwarded to your State Baptist Convention.

Messengers at the State Convention Annual Meetings... from your church and other churches across the state decide what percentage of Cooperative Program gifts contributed by local congregations stay in your state to support local missions and ministries. The percentage to be forwarded to the SBC for North American and international missions and ministries is also determined at this time.

Messengers at the Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting... from across the country decide how the gifts received from the states will be distributed among SBC entities. These gifts are used by SBC entities to send and support missionaries, train pastors, and other ministry leaders; provide relief for retired ministers and widows; and address social, moral, and ethical concerns relating to our faith and families.

The bottom line, people around the world hear the gospel and receive Christ


CFBC Missions
 
Missions are an integral part of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Cowan First Baptist is no exception. We are excited about what God is doing through our Missions Ministry as we reach out together. God continues to bless us with an incredible harvest in Cowan and the world. We are excited to see how God is moving in Cowan and the world for Christ.
 
While not all of us are able to serve in the mission field, we are able to give to missions. To that end, CFBC participates in many missions offerings throughout the year under the umbrella of WMU (Women’s Missionary Union), which was established as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention over a century ago. Some of those offerings and seasons of prayer include:
