Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Virginia is called to cultivate healthy congregations and engage individuals and churches in life transforming ministries. We are passionate about nurturing and forming faith in Jesus Christ, connecting Christ-followers to one another and to CBF’s global mission and ministry, engaging students and adults in mission experiences, and renewing God’s world through partnership and collaboration.
CBFVA’s vision is evident in these four priorities:
CBFVA is a network of congregations and individuals. Connections are essential to building our Fellowship. We bring like-minded Baptists together, link people in our network to helpful resources, introduce folks in Virginia to the broader CBF family, and encourage experiences that build relationship and beloved community.
CBFVA is committed to shaping and forming faith in Jesus Christ for the sake of the world. We believe congregational health and vitality are tied to intentional efforts to help people embody the values and convictions of Jesus. We create experiences that awaken consciousness about best practices for cultivating vital faith expressed in love, grace, compassion, and mercy.
CBFVA is committed to cultivating holistic mission efforts in Virginia and around the globe. Our passion is to serve “the least of these,” transform lives and communities, and influence how we view others and the world.
Like CBF Global, CBFVA is committed to “partnering to renew God’s world.” Our broken world needs repair and renewal. We join hands with other like-minded people of faith to bring healing and wholeness through peace, justice, and advocacy efforts.
