WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SGBF?
- To establish and maintain a Fellowship of Baptist pastors and churches which believe that salvation rests ultimately in the sovereign grace of God;
- To provide a medium for fellowship and mutual encouragement so that such pastors and churches may be edified in love and grace;
- To cooperate together in the carrying out of the Great Commission in those areas that cannot well be accomplished alone, namely the following areas:
- world missions,
- church planting,
- the education of aspiring, God-called ministers;
- To assist one another in the maintenance and promotion of sound biblical doctrine and practice in ways deemed necessary and right in the honest light of Holy Scripture.
Gustave Dore's "Valley of Dry Bones"
Through the act of preaching, God enlivens dead sinners and imparts a warm
heart of flesh where the cold dust of the grave had long dwelt.
