— BPFNA member
Join us in the movement for Peace rooted in Justice!
Welcome to BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz. We are thrilled that you are interested in joining us in our vision to create a world in which God’s justice is enacted in various ways locally, nationally, and globally. We at BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz recognize that we need each other to do this work in a world that is seemingly disconnected from the struggles for justice people face around the globe. Justice-seekers often feel alone. The community that has grown out of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz is involved on many fronts, and we are certain you can find a place of support and belonging while working with us as we live out our commitment to peace rooted in justice.
Q: Why join?
A: Many have found encouragement in the work they are doing through connecting with us. We commit to working with you to:
- Find ways to bring your energy, commitment, and gifts into this movement of social change grounded in the love of Christ for all of humanity;
- Strengthen links with Baptists across North America - from numerous Baptist conventions, crossing many racial/ethnic boundaries, throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico;
- Keep in touch with news about other Baptists - individuals, local congregations, convention bodies and more - and their peacemaking involvements and give you opportunities to support their work;
- Provide resources for you through our publications of personal stories, Bible study and worship resources, reports on trouble spots and peacemaking successes in North America and abroad, and theological reflection;
- Be informed of various gatherings of Baptist peacemakers, of unique educational opportunities, of BPFNA "friendship tours" - trips which introduce North American Baptists to Baptist peacemakers in places like Russia, Burma (Myanmar), Nicaragua and Liberia.
- Share a constant flow of creative and practical ideas for what you can do right where you are - ideas and resources that help you and others in your congregation move beyond general concern to direct involvement in ministry...from being merely "convinced" to being convicted about following Jesus.
