Our mission is to serve as a united voice of Black religious bodies that seeks to improve the quality of life for African Americans. We channel our unique voice of faith into advocacy efforts in the areas of hunger, social justice, public policy, health, economic empowerment, anti-violence, and education. The Conference of National Black Churches (CNBC) is currently composed of the national leadership of eight Black denominations that have a combined membership of over 20 million people and 30,000 congregations in the United States and the African Diaspora.  Currently, there are eight denominations whose national leaders comprise the leadership of CNBC and serve as members of the CNBC Board of Directors. The member denominations include:

  • African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME)
  • African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (AMEZ)
  • Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (CME)
  • Church of God In Christ (COGIC)
  • Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCFI)
  • National Baptist Convention of America, International, Inc., (NBCA)
  • National Baptist Convention, U.S.A. Inc. (NBC USA)
  • Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. (PNBC)

CNBC uses the influence and power of the leadership of the historically Black denominations to serve as a critical educational, organizational base, voice and influence to advocate for African Americans.

Through CNBC, the member denominations work collectively to become a permanent point of inter-denominational coordination for addressing systemic social change that will ultimately result in improving the quality of life for African Americans and other underserved populations as they seek to reach their full potential in American society. CNBC is committed to a national strategy of Black Church intervention in six key areas: hunger, social justice/public policy, health, economic empowerment, anti-violence and education.
