Wake Forest Baptist Church is a body of believers who are seeking to fulfill, through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the "Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-20). We are called to share and show the love of Jesus Christ. One way that we do this is in partnership with other like-minded believers at the local, state, and national levels. The following are those with whom we are affiliated in carrying out this work and witness:

LOCAL – Raleigh Baptist Association


The Raleigh Baptist Association is a fellowship of congregations committed to joining God where He is at work in our world through the intentional pursuit of a future for every church and a church for every person. Linking the Great Commission to Church Mission for Kingdom Growth. Matthew 28: 19-20

STATE – Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina

Each of the words in our name - Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina - is important to our identity. But perhaps Fellowship holds the greatest insight into who we are as an organization.

  • We are a fellowship of churches and individuals who voluntarily cooperate to do together what we could never accomplish alone, for the Kingdom of God.
  • We bring together people of shared interests, activities, beliefs and experience.
  • We provide companionship along our shared journey to be the presence of Christ in the world.
  • We serve each other as equals.

NATIONAL – Cooperative Baptist Fellowship

We are a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches who share a passion for the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice. Made up of individuals and approximately 1,900 partner churches, the Fellowship has an annual budget of $16 million and a foundation with an additional $30 million to provide resources for churches and send global missions field personnel to the most neglected people groups in the world.

The Fellowship has a paid staff of about 65 employees in addition to the approximately 150 Global Missions field personnel. The Fellowship considers the Atlanta Resource Center to be its home office.
