About the SBC of Virginia

What is the SBC of Virginia?

The SBC of Virginia is a fellowship of more than 700 local churches from across the Commonwealth of Virginia. We seek to have a global impact through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The SBC of Virginia began in 1993 when conservative Virginia Baptists across the state founded the SBCV fellowship. On September 16, 1996, messengers that met at Grove Avenue Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia voted for the fellowship to become a new Southern Baptist state convention. On October 1, 1996, the SBC Executive Committee officially acknowledged SBCV as a new State Convention.

In 2016, SBC of Virginia celebrated 20 years of faithful service. To learn more about the history of SBC of Virginia, visit:

Biblical Truth     |     Global Mission     |    Gospel Partnership     |    Local Churches     |    Fervent Prayer



We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, and is sufficient as our only infallible rule of faith and practice. We deny that other books are inspired by God in the same way as the Bible. The fundamental truths to which we are committed are expressed in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 with the clarification of inerrancy as described.



At the SBC of Virginia, we believe strongly that having a local missionary in the area, working hand-in-hand with God’s people, will have a far more meaningful impact on the spread of the Gospel than we could provide from a central location. Because of this, we’ve divided our state into six ministry regions, each having dedicated regional missionaries to assist local churches with their individual needs.

Our ministry regions are as follows:
