Renewal Church seeks to be intentional in gospel partnerships. Renewal is in friendly partnerships with the following organizations, and supports the work of the following mission organizations and ministries to help advance the gospel around the globe.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION

The Southern Baptist Convention was created for the purpose of eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the Baptist denomination of Christians, for the propagation of the Gospel. Today, it has grown into a network of more than fifty thousand cooperating churches and church-type missions banded together to make an impact for God’s Kingdom. No two Southern Baptist churches are alike; but there are certain commonalities that bind Southern Baptists together, regardless of race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, language, size, or locale. More information can be found on the SBC website.
