Why We Exist
Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia
Born in 1996, the SBCV‘s conception occurred in a 1993 meeting of about 600 theological conservatives from across Virginia who founded the SBCV fellowship. The Fellowship remained in its former State Convention as a force for positive change, but labored in vain for a return to the convention’s conservative theological moorings. On October 1, 1996, the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee recognized the SBCV as a fully cooperating, official state Baptist convention.Since that time, God has richly blessed the SBC of Virginia. Scores of churches have been planted, thousands of people have trusted in Jesus Christ, dozens of missions trips in the U.S. and abroad have applied God’s ministry globally, and laypersons of all ages and both genders have been equipped for His service.
