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.

September 8 and 9 at Baptist Ridge Camp. We will begin each evening at 6:45. Please note these two significant changes..... Due to the On Mission Celebration (Sept 26-27 -- FBC, Hermitage) we will NOT have a "Mission Fair" with our fall meeting this year. Since we will not have the "Mission Fair," we will NOT be having the "traditional" Tuesday evening meal.

Plan to attend Friday evening at 7:00, Saturday afternoon at 4:00, Fellowship Meal Saturday evening, and our IMB Keynote Speaker Saturday evening!! You won't want to miss this GREAT opportunity!!!!
