About Us

Welcome

The Dakota Baptist Convention is a network of Southern Baptist churches reaching across the Dakotas and around the world for Jesus Christ.  Our aim as a Convention is to assist our churches in starting new churches, sharing the Gospel, making disciples and building strong healthy churches for the glory of God.  

We are a partner with the Southern Baptist Convention and subscribe to the Baptist Faith & Message 2000.
