We are the American Baptist Churches of Maine.  We are disciple-making communities that believe the local church is the fundamental unit of mission and make it our priority to affirm, support and challenge local congregations as they live out their mission.  We are called by God, through Jesus Christ, to be communities of faith empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as witnesses and agents of God’s love and justice in the church and in the world.

We are the American Baptist Churches of Maine.  We are reclaiming our posture as a people of the Word who participate in God’s mission in the world, wherever that mission-journey takes us.  Our Baptist story informs us about how to serve in the midst of brokenness in the world, how to respond to those on the margins of society, and how to bear faithful witness to our risen Lord in the midst of confusion or despair.
