What is the Baptist Association?

"While the association has been defined in various ways, the simplest definition is:

a self-governing fellowship of churches on mission.

The churches comprising an association are and autonomous. They choose to unite in a partnership. While these churches are diverse, they share a common theology. Thus they are a family of churches - supporting, encouraging, and caring for one another. They also share a common commitment to carry forth Christ's on mission mandate set forth in Acts 1:8 - being witnesses of Christ in their Jerusalem, as well as to the uttermost part of the earth."                North American Mission Board, SBC
