Purposes and Passions
Most NAB Updates pull you into information about current activities of the North American Baptist Conference. In this update, we want to remind you, and ask you to reflect on the purposes of our conference of churches.
The following is the NAB’s official statement regarding her purpose:
The mission of North American Baptist Conference of churches (NAB or Conference) is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ at home and internationally.
The vision of our conference is to transform communities through healthy, Christ-centered churches that reach the lost for Jesus, develop Godly leaders, and multiply ministries around the world.
There are six core values that guide us in our mission to make disciples for Jesus Christ:
1. We value making new disciples. (Matthew28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47)
2. We value building future leaders. (Matthew 9:37-38; II Timothy 2:2)
3. We value deepening our God-centeredness. (Matthew 6:33; Colossians 2:9-10)
4. We value working together. (I Corinthians 3:9; Philippians 1:5)
5. We value developing Great Commission stewards. (Mark 12:41-44; II Corinthians 8:2-15)
6. We value showing compassionate care. (I Corinthians 12:25-26; Galatians 6:2; Philippians 2:1-2)
