Our church is an autonomous fellowship united with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches who share a passion for the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice. Our mission is to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission.
CBF is made up of individuals and approximately 1,800 affiliated churches seeking to be the presence of Christ, the Fellowship serves a larger renewal movement among Baptists. Partnering with 15 theological schools, 18 autonomous state and regional organizations and more than 150 ministry organizations worldwide, CBF has an annual budget of $12.3 million and is based in Atlanta.
We, at Pole Line Road Baptist Church, regularly have members participating throughout the year in short term mission projects in the US and abroad. Occasionally one of our members is involved in a longer-term missions project, ranging from a whole summer to a couple of years. In 2017, we had three go to Spokane, WA to work on Habitat for Humanity homes as well as other projects. In 2018, we’ll have one go to South Asia to conduct a church leaders retreat & a group from our church, and other local churches, will go to a fishing village in Alaska to put on a children’s program as well as outreach projects to the community.
Every year we help at a Bay Area Iranian Church Retreat by putting on a Vacation Bible School for their children while the parents are in retreat meetings; we are involved in a week long ministry at the Davis Migrant Center; & help with children’s events in Tahoe City, CA.
Another way we support mission endeavors is by giving a substantial percentage of our offerings received to help in various mission causes here in California and around the world. We keep in contact with many missionaries and love receiving updates and prayer requests.
