One of the great distinctives of the Baptist denomination is the autonomy of the local church, meaning that each church is self-governing and not subject to a set of guidelines or beliefs prescribed by a higher ecclesial body. Nonetheless, while affirming our autonomy as a church, we Benson Baptists consider it a blessing to partner alongside various denominational and interdenominational organizations in our efforts to love God and love others in the world. Below is a list of the groups with whom we affiliate and partner. Each organization is linked to its own website in case you wish to learn more.
