My Progressive Family, God has ordained it for us to yield ourselves to this Divine Purpose and plan, through the Progressive National Baptist Convention.
This Convention, through its leadership and its membership, has striven to carry out the work of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and represent the outstanding Christian Leadership in challenging times. We salute the life and contributions of all those who have served.
During the next four years, we will focus on the theme “In Pursuit of Wholeness.” Through this theme, we must remember the awesome responsibility that is ours to work so our Convention, our Nation, and our world would experience the transformative power of God as He equips and uses us as His agents of change, for His glory and the enhancement of humanity.
I invite all our partners and friends to join us as we together serve this present age.
The Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc., (PNBC) is a vital Baptist denomination with an estimated membership of 2.5 million people. PNBC was formed to give full voice, sterling leadership and active support to the American and world fight for human freedom. The convention was the convention -denominational home and platform for the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who addressed every annual session of the Convention until his death in 1968. New generations of Progressive Baptists are continuing the struggle for full voter registration, education and participation in society, economic empowerment and development, and the realization of universal human rights and total human liberation for all people.
PNBC’s charge is “equipping pastors and churches to be effective in ministry and lifting our voice on behalf of the voiceless.”
PNBC is the premier prophetic Christian body that proclaims The Gospel’s social justice message and equips church leadership to meet the needs of the voiceless across the globe.
