While no human program is perfect, the Cooperative Program has for many decades proven itself to be a powerfully strong tool for combining the resources of tens of thousands of Southern Baptist churches, allowing us to accomplish together far more than we could ever accomplish separately in regard to reaching the world for Christ.
In my mind, the Cooperative Program is a great picture of the Body of Christ extended beyond the local church level. Whether a congregation has a few people or thousands, each church is able through its God-led generosity to be a part of some amazing Kingdom work on a grand scale.
I encourage every Alabama Baptist pastor and church to support the Cooperative Program through your giving.
