Who We Are

The Alliance of Baptists began in 1987 as a prophetic voice in Baptist life. Today, we are a faith community comprised of male and female laity and clergy, people of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, theological beliefs, and ministry practices.

We are Christians knit together by love for one another and God, combining progressive inquiry, contemplative prayer and prophetic action to bring about justice and healing in a changing world.

We are women and men, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparents, children, students, teachers, lawyers, professors, artists, doctors, musicians, community organizers, unemployed, retired, volunteers — married, divorced, single, committed and somewhere in between.

We are concerned about drones, homelessness, the death penalty, racism, education, classism, hunger, poverty, and abuse of all kinds.

We are creative, imaginative and committed to loving the world God so loves.
