We are very fortunate to have this great facility as a ministry tool in our association. Now is a good time to step up and help assure the future ministry of Fellowship Baptist Association includes Baptist Ridge Camp! Come to the auction....bring your checkbook....bid early.....bid often!!
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.
