because you give…
share the stories of CP
Each year, the SBTC encourages churches to set aside one Sunday to promote the Cooperative Program. This helps your congregation stay aware of our convention-wide missions funding mechanism, reminds them of the joy of cooperation, and shows them how their CP dollars are making an impact in Texas and all over the world.
As you are preparing for services on CP Sunday we pray you will consider playing one of the CP Videos, use the provided resources on this page, preach a sermon or maybe invite a guest speaker from the SBTC to come and share about the Cooperative Program.
The CP is our missionally driven core value…
It’s a daunting task to reach the world with the gospel, yet that is what we are called to do (Matt. 28.19-20). Individually, it’s overwhelming; but together, the possibilities are endless. When you give to the Lord, you join millions of other Southern Baptists in fulfilling the Great Commission of taking the good news of Jesus to a world in need of a Savior.
If “two are better than one” (Eccl. 4.9), how much better are more than 40,000 Southern Baptist churches across the United States. With a global population topping 7 billion and a commission to share the gospel everywhere, we must enhance our cooperative efforts if we are going to fulfill Christ’s command.
