The CSB is a Cooperative Program ministry.


The California Southern Baptist is the official newspaper of California Southern Baptist Convention. The monthly publication features news, opinions, information and promotional material for and about Southern Baptist congregations, mission endeavors, ministries, programs and emphases. While focusing primarily on California, the CSB also includes news about national and international Southern Baptist ministries.
