Subscribe to the CSB Newsjournal

The California Southern Baptist is the official newsjournal of California Southern Baptist Convention, and serves its churches and members, as well as the wider Southern Baptist Convention family.

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 efforts.

Subscription options include Individual and Church Group Plans.

  • Individual Subscription: The CSB will be mailed to the individual's address monthly and should be received near the first day of the publication month. The most convenient way to subscribe to the print edition is online.

Simply click here, provide the information requested, and you’ll begin receiving the CSB with the next available issue. Cost is $9.50 per year.

  • Church Group Plan: With the church plan, the church sends in a list of members who wish to receive the newspaper at their homes; or a bulk amount can be sent to the church. The cost is 66 cents per copy per month and is billed directly to the church.

An alternative is providing the CSB for church leaders including Sunday school teachers, deacons or the church council.

The best way to subscribe to the church plan is by sending a list of names and addresses either by email to or by mail to the California Southern Baptist, Attn: Holly Smith, 678 E. Shaw Avenue, Fresno CA 93710.

    There now are two versions of the newspaper – either print or digital. Take a look at the E-dition. Both are available to individuals or churches.

    This Convention serves our culturally diverse congregations as we fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
