The AFBC is a voluntary association of churches and ministry personnel. It provides a network of loving support to churches and individuals through fellowship and practical help.
The AFBC is not a denomination and claims no authority or administration over local churches.
The AFBC stands for the historic baptistic faith, including belief in an inerrant and authoritative Bible and a confident hope in the pre-millennial return of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. The AFBC rejects the practice of tongues and faith healing as contemporary gifts of the Holy Spirit. (See the Doctrinal Statement for full details.)
Members of the AFBC are expected to be separate from denominations and groups that are associated with the World Council of Churches.
