In 1925, the Southern Baptist Convention established the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative Program - CP Missions - enables all Southern Baptists to work together to support missions efforts world-wide.
Through the International Mission Board, Southern Baptists support 5,444 missionaries in different countries. Your gifts and prayers resulted in 565,967 (2008 Annual Statistical Report) new believers baptized in 2008 outside of North America.
Southern Baptist's support of CP Missions allowed the North American Mission Board to send out 5,081 missionaries last year and help start over 1,700 new churches. Approximately 415,000 people were baptized last year as a result of individual Southern Baptists becoming Partners in the Harvest.
