Who We Are
Baptist Association is an
organization of independent and autonomous Southern Baptist
Congregations who voluntarily cooperate in order to advance the
Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. The association is
headquartered in 42 separate and mission-minded Baptist Churches
in three counties of West Tennessee. The location and times for
meeting of the congregations may be found by following the
"Churches" link on the home page..
from left to right are Moderator Jimmy
Burroughs, Vice-Moderator Micah Renfroe, and Treasurer Vickie
Anderson. Not shown is Clerk Amanda Taylor.
What we are truly all
about is contained in our motto:
Partnering With One Another
To Fulfill The Great Commission
To help advance the Kingdom of God, we
voluntarily come together in order to more effectively fulfill
the tasks of the church.
It is not the responsibility of the association
to do the work the Lord called the church to do, but rather to
assist the churches in doing their God-given ministry. This is
accomplished through training church leaders, resourcing as
practical, and by helping the churches coordinate activities.
The association has no ecclesiastical authority or power over
any congregation or any staff member.
Our Resource Center is located at 771 E Church
Street in Lexington.
Our Association is located wherever
the members of our churches are at work in the world.
