There are many reasons to choose to be a Southern Baptist congregation. Southern Baptists have a reputation for biblical and theological conservatism. Southern Baptist ministers have access to the finest theological education at their six main seminaries and many other seminaries sponsored by state conventions. There is an abundance of cooperation between Southern Baptists at the local, state, and national level. The main reason our congregation has chosen to be a Southern Baptist congregation is that Southern Baptists do missions!
The convention was founded in 1845 around the sending of missionaries. In 1925, the cooperative program was created so all Southern Baptist churches could cooperate in the sending of missionaries by nationally administered domestic and international agencies.
Today, the cooperative program is still giving churches the ability to reach beyond their walls through missions sending. Southern Baptists have two national offerings each year with a missions emphasis: The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering supports North American missions, while the Lottie Moon Christmas offering supports international missions. Through cooperative giving at Eastlake Baptist Church, the giver can be a part of the great commission.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo,I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20
