Baptist News Global

  (Redirected from Associated Baptist Press)

Baptist News Global is an independent Baptist news agency. It was founded in 2014 as a merger of Associated Baptist Press (ABP), which was founded in 1990,[1][2] and the Religious Herald, which was founded in 1828.[3]

Baptist News Global is a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship partner.[4] Its predecessor, Associated Baptist Press, was founded by Baptist journalists as an autonomous self-supporting entity in 1990, when the Southern Baptist Convention fired the editors of its highly respected news service and turned it into a house organ for the SBC.
