The SFVSBA was established in Arleta, CA in 1953. It is currently led by Director of Missions, T.A. Nguyen. The SFVSBA offers many churches with ministries for people of all ages and walks of life who are looking to strengthen their relationship with Christ.
Our mission is to assist the churches of the San Fernando Valley Southern Baptist Association in fulfilling the Great Commission.
"And Jesus came up and spoke to them saying. 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you to the end of the age.'"
Matthew 28: 18-20
OUR DENOMINATIONAL COMMUNITY OF FAITH
Since its organization in 1845 in August, Georgia, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has grown to over 16 million members who worship in more than 42,000 churches in the United States. Southern Baptists sponsor about 5,000 home missionaries serving the United States, Canada, Guam and the Caribbean, as well as sponsoring more than 5,000 foreign missionaries in 153 nations of the world.
The term "Southern Baptist Convention" refers to both the denomination and its annual meeting. Working through 1,200 local associations and 41 state conventions and fellowships, Southern Baptists share a common bond of basic Biblical beliefs and a commitment to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world.
You become a Southern Baptist by uniting with a Southern Baptist church, one in friendly cooperation with the general Southern Baptist enterprise of reaching the world for Christ. Typically church membership is a matter of accepting Jesus as your Savior and Lord and experiencing believer's baptism by immersion.
