Forming Together

Welcome to a community of churches and individuals who are forming together. We seek to know God better, work On Mission together with God, and sustain healthy spiritual formation for individuals and churches.

On Mission

God is on mission.

God is constantly at work in our world. Together we seek to discover places God is moving and find ways to join in as partners. Our goal is not to “do” missions to people. Our goal is to be On Mission with people, communities, and congregations who are already partnering in God’s work. Our world is rich in opportunities to be invested in God’s work!

CBF is committed to missions that cultivate beloved community, bear witness to Jesus Christ, and seek transformational development. Our mission work is grounded in the contexts of global poverty, global migration, and global church.

CBF Oklahoma can help churches, groups and individuals participate in life-changing missions — across the street or across the globe. As you discover where God is working and how you may partner, CBF OK can connect you with highly-effective CBF field personnel and resources.

Community

Forming together is at the heart of CBF Oklahoma. Our faith is built in community. We work better in community. We learn and grow from working alongside others. Agreeing and disagreeing with others teaches us to be tolerant, to forgive, and even to change. All of these moments in community form us, together, as the Kingdom of God.

About

Our Story

The Cooperating Baptist Fellowship of Oklahoma is a community of churches and individuals building partnerships on mission with Christ and sustaining conversations of faith, well-being, and Baptist identity. Together we are On Mission, finding ways to engage where God is already at work, building community, encouraging young Baptists, building bridges across racial divides, embracing church starts, and advocating for positive change.

The Cooperating Baptist Fellowship of Oklahoma was founded on February 29, 1992. As our name indicates, the CBF of Oklahoma is a cooperating partner of the CBF in Atlanta, GA. The state organization cooperates with the national body in the areas of evangelism, poverty initiatives, disaster relief, support of theological institutions, religious journalism, new church starts and other mutually agreed-upon items.
