The Baptist State Convention of Michigan is a fellowship of more than 300 churches dedicated to fulfilling the Great Commission and punching holes in the darkness through Starting, Strengthening, and Sending churches. We are supported by your church's contributions through the Cooperative Program and the Frances Brown State Missions Offering.


Partners in advancing God's Kingdom!


Doing whatever it takes to see lives transformed for Christ through Starting, Strengthening, and Sending churches.


Affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention-


Baptist Faith and Message 2000



BIBLE: God's Word is our sole source of authority.


KINGDOM FOCUS: We are committed to joining God and His people in advancing His Kingdom.


LOCAL CHURCHES: Our task is to serve, support, and extend the ministry of the local church; God's chosen instrument to reach and disciple people.


COOPERATION: We value working together voluntarily to enlarge God's Kingdom.


SERVANT LEADERSHIP: We value developing servant leaders to their God-given capacity.


The BSCM logo is an abstract representation of a lighthouse. The colors in the logo correspond to the colors of the words in our tag line - "Starting. Strengthening. Sending." The word "Starting" and the shorter brushstroke are both green to symbolize the new growth that takes place when starting new churches. The word "Strengthening" and the taller/thicker brushstroke are red denoting the size and strength of existing churches that are more established. The word "Sending" is yellow and directly relates to the light shining from the lighthouse and emphasizes our goal of "punching holes in the darkness" of 

our world. In this abstract representation of a lighthouse, the beam of light actually crosses the lighthouse rather than originating from it. This is a subliminal reference to the cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And lastly, the wave of water points to Michigan's location on the Great Lakes. Michigan Baptists are proud to work together to be a lighthouse shining as we Start, Strengthen, and Send Churches in a lost and dying world.
