What We Believe

The Miami Baptist Association is unique. There are no other associations like us in the United States. We are very international with two-thirds of our churches using another language, other than English in their worship service.

We have two North American Missionaries serving on staff. Plus, we have about 6 other SBC national missionaries in our churches. We have retired missionary members. We have a strong connection to mission work all over the world. Our association is known all over the world as our members travel and serve the Lord.

We have a world-wide influence that is second to none in our Convention. If the Miami Baptist Association was a state convention, we would be larger than all of our state partnerships combined (West Virginia, Indiana, and Nevada).

But it is our Baptist polity that makes us so strong. Cooperation is the key word to understand who we are as a denomination.

We do not have a hierarchy.
Nor do we have authority over anyone.
Every church is autonomous.
Every association, every state convention, and even the varied ministries are all self-governing.
We choose to fellowship together.
We choose to help each other.
We choose to join forces together to accomplish more than we could ever do on our own. Together, we can support more than 11,000 missionaries around the world. Together, we can provide for the 6 largest seminaries in the world. We make sure that we have a voice in Washington, D.C. that reflects the views of the majority of Southern Baptists.
