Evanston Baptist Church is part of a family of churches that are now sometimes known as Great Commission Baptists.
This family of churches has also been known for nearly 150 years as the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
We prefer this new name “Great Commission Baptists” because we are not located in “The South”.
But we’re okay with being known as “Southern Baptists” too, because we are so thankful for the spiritual sacrifices made by SBC churches to start and provide support for Evanston Baptist Church.
And we work together with other churches through the SBC to help do good works around the world in Jesus’ name.
