Independent Baptists are those Baptist groups which reject, on principle, affiliation with any external governing organization such as Convention, Association or Fellowship. However, they may fellowship with churches of like faith and support missionaries sent forth by the authority of Independent churches and mission boards.
Such churches govern themselves using the Bible as the only authority. A local church elects its own officials and votes which missionaries to support.
