Why do we have an Annual Meeting?

Southern Baptists are congregational, meaning that any authority given to the Baptist Convention of New Mexico and its entities ultimately comes from the local churches that choose to cooperate with the Convention. This is different from most denominations where an outside organization has authority over local churches.

The Annual Meeting of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico is a time for messengers who represent local churches to approve the budget and board members for the Convention and its entities. Messengers will also hear reports of what the convention and its entities have accomplished in the last year, thus providing accountability for the Convention.

It’s not all business at the Convention, though. Messengers also worship together through music and the preaching of God’s Word, helping us focus on the ultimate reason why BCNM exists: to advance God’s Kingdom in the Land of Enchantment. The Annual Meeting is also a time for churches to network with one another, helping each other fulfill the Great Commission throughout New Mexico.
