North American Baptist Conference
Central is part of an association of churches throughout Canada and the United States called the North American Baptist Conference. Baptists are unique in that we are not a “denomination” but rather a “conference” or “association.” What this means is that we are not governed top down by people outside of our church, but we see our church as ruled directly by Jesus under the practical stewardship and leadership of those who are part of our church community. But we still connect with these other churches on our initiative for the purposes of accountability and cooperation. For the most part, the NAB provides practical resources to our church in the areas of leadership development, church planting and partnerships for resourcing missionaries.
