What is the Baptist Church Ministry Conference

The Baptist Church Ministry Conference (BCMC) was born in the hearts of Pastor Mike Frazier of Canton Baptist Temple (Canton, Ohio) and Pastor Dennis Jennings of Cherry Street Baptist Church (Springfield, Missouri).  The vision for BCMC is to provide an annual opportunity for pastors, missionaries, and others in full time ministry to come together to be refreshed, encouraged, equipped and challenged to return to their place of service excited about fulfilling the Great Commission through the ministry of their local Baptist Church.

The guiding principles of the BCMC can be summed up in three words: Biblical; Balanced; and Baptist.


The BCMC is a preaching conference.  It is our conviction that the Word of God is what the Spirit of God uses to work in the hearts of the people of God to accomplish the will of God in this world. Our passion is that those who come to the BCMC be challenged, encouraged and inspired by the preaching of God’s Word.


The BCMC is a ministry conference.  It is our conviction that God’s plan for every believer and church is the fulfillment of the Great Commission for “all the world to every creature.” You will be challenged to reach people of every demographic in your community and your world through the ministry of your local church. At BCMC, our focus is evangelism, ministry and missions.


The BCMC is unashamedly a Baptist conference.  It is our conviction that the distinctives that make Baptists who we are have both relevance and value in a time when Bible doctrine is taking as backseat to pragmatism, programs, and personality driven ministry.  The BCMC embraces our historical Baptist heritage, not as a matter of nostalgia, but as a matter of Biblical conviction.

Our Values:

As a Baptist entity we hold to the following Baptist Distinctives:

  • We believe in biblical authority in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in the autonomy of the local church – congregational rule.
  • We believe in the priesthood of all believers.
  • We believe in two ordinances of the local church – baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper.
  • We believe in individual soul liberty.
  • We believe in a saved and baptized church membership.
  • We believe in two offices of the local church – pastor and deacon.
  • We believe in the separation of church and state.

Our Leadership:

  • Co-Chairmen
    • Mike Frazier, Canton Baptist Temple, Canton, Ohio
    • Dennis Jennings, Cherry Street Baptist Church, Springfield, Missouri
  • Steering Committee
    • Archie Emerson, Ocean State Baptist Church, Smithfield, Rhode Island
