The Bible clearly teaches that God cannot be contained in a building; neither should a church’s ministry be contained within a building. Instead, it should use its buildings as a platform from which it should launch its ministry into the community.

Help With New Construction or Renovations:
The State Board of Missions offers church building services to the congregations of the Alabama Baptist Convention in three basic ways:

  1. We try to help churches to not over build.
  2. We try to help churches to not under build.
  3. We try to help churches to not mis-build.
