Most local SBC churches have three levels of association, not really government since we are autonomous, the local, state, and SBC level. Any church can affiliate with none, all three levels, or any combination the local church wishes. I would be interested in knowing how your church does this, not just SBCs, but all types of Baptist groups. Do they all have three levels? Which level do you think helps you local church the most? Do you use Sunday School material through one of these organizations? Thanks for your response.
