Welcome to Fellowship Baptist Association!


     Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission.   Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!

    A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?"  There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?"  Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"!  I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.

Pastor Appreciation Month

October is Pastor Appreciation Month!  I want to encourage you to take some time to honor your pastor at some point during the month of October! A card....a meal....a simple "Thank You" is very appreciated by each and every pastor. I know we should honor pastors all of the time......but October is a month set aside as "Pastor Appreciation Month." So....do something special for YOUR pastor!!

Cooperative Program Emphasis

October is also Cooperative Program emphasis month. Please help educate your church about the Cooperative Program plan of giving. It’s the funding process Southern Baptists use to support missions and evangelism at the state, national, and international levels. It’s one way YOUR church is extended to ministries that reach the lost, feed the hungry, and help the hurting.
