It is the purpose of the Central Valley Southern Baptist Association to band together as a fellowship of churches on mission for the purpose of assisting each local Southern Baptist Church to:
• Multiply disciples through effective evangelism and discipleship,
• Multiply congregations through effective church planting, and
• Multiply and strengthen ministry participation through pastoral and lay development, encouragement, and support.
The preciousness of Christian fellowship is something to be valued, sought, prayed for and protected (Ephesians 4:3). You know what it is like when Christians are there for one another and looking to encourage and help one another go further for Christ and His service. And just as powerfully you know the devastation and discouragement when selfishness and self-pity enters the picture.
The Savior in John 17 actually calls us to experience unity and fellowship and teamship like He and the Father and the Holy Spirit know—WOW!!! Watching some of the college football bowl games gives opportunity of watching a team of guys totally committed to the team’s objective. Everyone is giving his best to carry out his assignment and do this in such a way to help his teammates get their job done. This is what we need and should do in each of our churches—living sold out to Jesus and to His mission.
What an opportunity to be learning this all through 2017!!!
