“You are an inspiration! I really love you guys and your publication. Thank you for being there and giving me such spiritual nourishment.”
— BPFNA Member (Sally Wagner)
What comes to mind when you hear the word Baptist? Do you think peacemaker? How about folks who care for the poor, resist racial discrimination, speak out about worldwide injustices and care for the environment? If that is not your vision of Baptist, then we invite you to stay a while, find out more about us and learn what the word Baptist means around here. The Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America works to gather, equip and mobilize Baptists to build a culture of peace rooted in justice.
As the largest network of Baptist peacemakers in the world, we celebrate and support the peacemaking work done by Baptist churches in Canada, the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico by raising the visibility of these efforts; bringing peacemakers together in regional and international gatherings; and providing resources, speakers and training to our members. We also actively connect with peacemakers from other traditions, faith-based and secular, to build alliances and work together toward our common goal of a more just and peaceful world.
Enjoy your visit. You are welcome here anytime.
Why a Baptist Peace Fellowship?
Statement by founding director Ken Sehested about why a Baptist Peace Fellowship is important
Are You a Peacemaker?
Peacemaking means more than simply being against violence. Peacemaking involves every area of our lives: personal (with God), interpersonal (between individuals), and social (between groups).
