Nine churches. One mission.

Taking the gospel into the areas of Whites Run Baptist Association and into the farthest reaches of the world.

Our Mission

With God’s grace, mercy, and power, the WRBA will be a fellowship of churches in cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Kentucky Baptist Convention to strengthen existing churches and grow new churches/missions by creating community, uniting our resources, and communicating with one another, keeping one another accountable, and maturing one another in Christ. Churches in the WRBA are cooperating together to reach the lost through prayer, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, worship, and fellowship.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20

Association is a term that defines how Baptist churches work together in partnership. Churches choose to be part of the local Baptist association and each determines how much participation and financial support they will invest. Many of today’s associations have stepped up to provide value and are leading member churches in revitalization, church planting, leadership development and missions. 

Churches partnering through the local associational is sometimes overlooked. Yet, we know that partnership between churches is an important aspect of New Testament Christianity. The apostle Paul and other New Testament leaders modeled partnership between churches. 

While their context may have been different from ours today, the pattern of partnership is repeatable. God still provides uniquely gifted people to lead partnerships today.

In the past, churches partnered together — helping each other with doctrine and practice (Acts 8:14-25; Gal. 3), relocating leaders to strengthen other situations (Acts 11:19-23, 25-26, 12:25, 16:1-3), sending individuals and teams on short-term vists (Acts 11:27, 19:21-22; 1 Cor. 4:15-17; Phil. 2:19-29; 2 Tim. 1:18), sending money to help each other (Acts 11:28-30), and together advancing the gospel and church plants (Rom. 15:24; 2 Cor. 10:15-16).
