Join us in Springfield Feb. 23-25, 2017 at Ridgecrest Baptist Church for the Great Commission Conference. Formerly known as the MBC Evangelism Conference, the 2017 GCC is an expanded multi-generation event to equip and encourage Missouri Baptists in all facets of gospel ministry. It is designed for pastors, church staff leaders, students, campus missionaries, and anyone else seeking encouragement and equipping for The Mission!
There will be biblical preaching and teaching, corporate worship, training / equipping, networking/relationship-building, and story sharing. Together we will celebrate God’s work among us to make disciples, multiply churches, and develop leaders.
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.
