Transformation Ministries Churches is a fellowship of churches primarily located in California. It was formed in 2006 when the American Baptist Churches of the Pacific Southwest separated from the American Baptist Churches USA over the issue of Biblical authority. ABC-USA was equivocal regarding homosexuality. TM Churches reaffirm historic Christian belief that "the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching."[1] It is based in Covina, California.

TM Churches has moved forward since then, adding and planting churches both in the southwest as well as across the country. A new focus, on ministry hubs across the nation, is changing the geographic spread of member churches. Hubs in Dallas, Miami, Indianapolis and elsewhere are in process. TM has crossed the US border to establish a Tijuana hub.

In 2019, TM Churches announced that fifty churches had been planted since 2015. TM had the goal of planting these churches by the end of 2020. This makes TM Churches one of the fastest growing church bodies in the USA.

Transformation Ministries, while retaining a Baptist theology and ethos, is an example of the newer post-denominational face of 21st century evangelical church fellowships. It does not consider itself a denomination, but rather a mission organization and an association of churches.
