The Nigerian Baptist Convention, which Thomas Jefferson Bowen started in 1850, has grown into over 10,000 Churches with about 3,000,000 baptized members and up to 6.5 million worshipping members spread across the nation.

This denominational entity has metamorphosed into thirty-one Conferences (ecclesiastical regions) in Nigeria alone.

The work has spread to several other African nations including Republic of Benin, Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Chad, Niger, Burkina Faso and South Sudan. The United Kingdom and the United States of America are also experiencing the influence of its growth and expansion.


As a national corporate body, the Nigerian Baptist Convention has the task of sharing the truth of salvation to all and sundry through our Churches, Associations, Conferences and Ministries.
