For centuries, Baptists have believed that they could accomplish more together than they could on their own. As a Baptist church, we are autonomous. No outside organization has authority over Mt. Tabor Baptist Church. But we voluntarily cooperate with other churches through the following organizations for mutual encouragement and the proclamation of the gospel:
Lynn Baptist Association
In order to serve our local community, we cooperate with other Baptist churches in LaRue, Green, and Hart counties of Kentucky.
Through the Kentucky Baptist Convention (KBC), we cooperate with nearly 2,400 other Baptist churches across the Commonwealth in ministries ranging from church revitalization to foster care. To learn more about the KBC, visit kybaptist.org.
We cooperate with the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) to support ministry and missions across the United States and around the world. Through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the SBC, we help penetrate the lostness of North America by planting churches, and with the International Mission Board (IMB) of the SBC, we support around 5,000 missionaries across the globe. To learn more about the SBC, visit sbc.net.
The Cooperative Program
The main mechanism for our partnership with other churches is called the Cooperative Program (CP). A portion of our tithes and offerings go to the KBC and the SBC to support missions and other efforts around the world.
These are some of the efforts we support through the CP.
