October 16-19, 2022

On the Campus of Temple Baptist Church and The Crown College

Our Rallying Cry is “Unto the Furtherance of the Gospel.”

Our rallying cry is “unto the furtherance of the gospel.” The famous evangelist, R.A. Torrey, said, “My one ambition in life is to win as many souls as possible. It is the most worthwhile thing in life.” The purpose of Baptist Friends is to rally people around the truth of god and, as friends, to labor together to evangelize the world. I know you will find truths at this year’s meeting that will be helpful to you, your church, and your ministry. Whether you are a pastor in the pulpit, or a laymen in the pews, there is something for you at the 2022 International Baptist Friends meeting. Prayerfully consider joining us for the powerful preaching, practical split sessions, Christ-honoring music, and Christian fellowship.

Evangelizing the Small Towns in America

Every great civilization in the past that decayed has first manifested its decline in the family life. Insidious enemies are cutting away at the spiritual foundation of America’s greatness. The forces of unrighteousness and unbelief are undermining our security. 

These attacks are from every direction.  The old ideals of family prayer at home and the family pew at church services are being abandoned. Jesus Christ proclaimed, “Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” 

Churches that are evangelizing the small towns of America are on the front lines of advancing with God in our nation. Surely you can see this need. 

Our God will be exalted through the righteousness of His remnant in our nation. This righteousness is inherent in the gospel of Christ.
