Summary

The preamble of the original constitution of the Southern Baptist Convention describes the purpose of the SBC as "eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the whole denomination in one sacred effort, for the propagation of the Gospel." These words are not only historically significant; they convey the mission and purpose and distill the distinct facets of the SBC Cooperative Program.One Sacred Effortlooks close at this unique and enduring ministry operation.
