CBF Global Missions
(Cooperative Baptist Fellowship)
FBC Abilene partners with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and 100 missionaries to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission. At the forefront of the modern missionary movement, Baptists have been forming together for more than two centuries to make disciples of all nations. The Fellowship supports long-term field personnel serving in 30 countries, 50 Student.Go interns, and hundreds of short-term mission teams annually. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, CBF has cultivated a beloved community, they bear witness to Jesus Christ, and seek transformational development among people and places otherwise forgotten and forsaken. CBF field personnel serve alongside congregations within three primary contexts: global poverty, global migration, and the global church.
