The Cooperative Program
The financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state and every nation.
Through the Cooperative Program, Southern Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries.
Giving: An Act of Fellowship
The time when we bring our tithes and offerings to the Lord is one of the most powerful five minutes of our Sunday gatherings. This is a significant time of fellowship. The biblical Greek word koinonia, often translated fellowship, is also used in the New Testament as a word for giving.
Each week, in our churches we come in an act of fellowship from our neighborhoods and communities. We worship our savior in spirit and truth, fellowshipping together in the Word. And every Sunday morning we also come together…giving as an act of fellowship.
“…You believed the message about Christ, and you obeyed it by sharing [koinonia] generously with God’s people and with everyone else.”
The Apostle Paul
(2 Corinthians 9:13b CEV)

The Cooperative Program ties all Southern Baptists ministries together so every church can have a global reach.
Through your church’s faithful Cooperative Program giving and seasonal offerings, Oklahoma Baptists are able to join in fellowship together in the advancement of the Gospel throughout the state, the nation and around the globe. The Cooperative Program ties all our giving together so that every church can have a global reach through year-round budget giving.
Seasonal Offerings like the State Missions Offering and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering have more impact because of the Cooperative Program.
The Cooperative Program covers the administrative costs of seasonal offerings so 100% of these funds can go straight to mission fields all over the world. Because your church gives faithfully through the Cooperative Program we are able to do more together.
The funds are received each week by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. The Cooperative Program raises about $25.5 million annually in our state. We take very seriously the stewardship of this money as it is given in worship as an offering to the Lord. The chart shows how the money is distributed to the nations through our state convention:
Because of these gifts, our churches can respond in the darkest moments through Disaster Relief. College students across Oklahoma are reached through BCM. Encampments like Falls Creek reach tens of thousands of young people and adults with the gospel.
Our vision is healthy churches working together in the power of the Holy Spirit to glorify God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The last two years have presented many challenges, but Oklahoma Baptists have responded with such faithfulness to help advance the Gospel together.
To give through the Cooperative Program (CP), simply give your tithes and offerings to your local cooperating Oklahoma Baptist Church.
Each church determines the percentage of the annual church budget given through the CP. Ask you pastor if your church participates in giving through the Cooperative Program!
