The Alliance of Baptists began in 1987 as a prophetic voice in Baptist life. Today, it is a faith community comprised of male and female laity and clergy, people of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, theological beliefs, and ministry practices. Alliance of Batists is Christians knit together by love for one another and God, combining progressive inquiry, contemplative prayer and prophetic action to bring about justice and healing in a changing world.
The Alliance identity discernment group worked during 2016 and discerned three core values of the Alliance: theological home, pursuit of God's justice and partnership in mission. These three are displayed beautifully in our logo. The flame symbolizes our commitment to the pursuit of justice, a wave at the bottom calling us to remember our theological home in the waters of baptism and the way the three parts work together, symbolizing partnership in mission as understood through the Trinitarian faith.
