LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) – Reaching the people of North America with the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been a primary purpose of the Southern Baptist Convention since its beginning in 1845. Over the last 150 years and more, Southern Baptists have been working together to evangelize and plant churches throughout this continent.

Looking to the future, Southern Baptists must make the adjustments that will focus our work in order to make maximum impact on this land.
