This paper examines the roles of the Nigerian Baptists Social Ministries in the pursuit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) in the realization of a better living standard for the people of the world without jeopardizing the interest of future generations. It rounds off by suggesting some ways for better future performance for the Baptist Social Ministry. With the theory of secularism, the paper investigates how these UNSDGs came into existence, and the purpose they were designed to achieve by 2030. In addition, the paper considers some definitions of some concepts in the conceptual framework, the roles of the Faith-Based organizations in the lives of their members. It also considers the set-up of the social ministry of the Nigerian Baptists. Furthermore, the paper probes into the activities of the social ministry of the Nigerian Baptistsat the local church, conference, and convention levels. The paper also establishes how the Baptists have contributed in improving the lives of the general public as a way of influencing the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, before conclusion and recommendations.
