The Big Picture

The Church

Stamford Baptist Church (SBC) is a diverse congregation of some 50-60 people (post-Covid), located in Stamford, CT. Our diversity is reflected in the racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic makeup of our congregation. SBC is aligned in fellowship with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist Churches of New England (BCNE). We embrace “The Baptist Faith and Message 2000” as our formal doctrinal statement. We interpret the Biblical offices for the church as Pastors (Elders) and Deacons, with our Lord Jesus Christ as our Head. Our governance is congregational, with all major issues of the church decided by the congregation through votes at three regularly scheduled business meetings (or special meetings, if needed).
