The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has grown to be a network of more than 50,000 cooperating churches and church-type missions banded together to make an impact for God's Kingdom. At the heart of their mission is the compelling urgency to proclaim the Gospel to everyone. Southern Baptists also take seriously the Lord's example of compassion and His command to love and care for the needy. The people of the SBC endeavor to actively reflect God's love and compassion in their communities and this is resounded in many different ministry expressions, from disaster and world hunger relief to advancing the gospel. Mount Zion is proud to be a member of the Southern Baptist Convention.
