About Alliance of Baptists

The Alliance of Baptists is a fellowship of Baptist churches and individuals in the United States. In its theology and social stances, the Alliance is characterized as a progressive or liberal Christian fellowship. The Alliance's collaborative non-hierarchical Leadership Team of four members works virtually and maintains an address in Atlanta, Georgia. The Alliance of Baptists was formed in 1987 as the Southern Baptist Alliance by moderate individuals and congregations who were considering separating from the Southern Baptist Convention as a result of the conservative resurgence/fundamentalist takeover controversy. Since 1995, many Alliance congregations and people have also aligned with several other free church traditions including the American Baptist Churches (USA), the United Church of Christ, and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
