For more than 100 years, American Baptist home missionaries in Alaska have encouraged life in Christ through ministries of witness, renewal and justice. Today, mission in Alaska is organized and energized by members of local American Baptist churches, just as it is in other parts of the U.S. Currently, 14 American Baptist congregations, located throughout the state, reach out as ambassadors for Christ to Alaska’s multicultural population.

American Baptist Churches are healthy missional churches that nurture devoted disciples of Jesus Christ who live their lives in mission and ministry for the healing of the world through the love of God.
