The North American Baptist Fellowship brings together Baptists in Canada and the United States for missions, dialogue, collaboration, and fellowship. The NABF represents 22 Baptist unions with 19.8 million Baptists and 55,500 congregations. Additionally, many seminaries and ministry organizations are also part of the NABF. In addition to projects and emphases throughout the year, the NABF holds a meeting of denominational and ministry leaders (usually in January) and hosts a session during the annual gathering of the Baptist World Alliance (usually in July).

We are a community of Baptist churches committed to pray and encourage one another to support the renewal of the Church in North America. We seek to live out the incarnation of the living Christ in this time and place for the glory of God and for all people.

One of six regional fellowships of the Baptist World Alliance, the NABF connects Baptists in Canada and the United States with the global Baptist family. The BWA unites Baptists worldwide, leads in world evangelism, responds to poeple in need, defends human rights, and promotes theological reflection.
