is an Association of independent Missionary Baptist Churches in Missouri and Illinois. We cooperate together for the purposes of Missions, Fellowship, and Mutual Assistance. Most of our churches also affiliate with the American Baptist Association. As an Association, we have no employees and no denominational hierarchy. Churches in the Association send representatives (known as Messengers) to gather together annually in October for a time of fellowship, to conduct associational business, and to hear from Missionaries. The association also meets once in the summer for a Mission Rally. Both of these events are hosted by a different church each year. The association also owns a Church Camp in South East Missouri and hosts two weeks of Family Camp each summer.

If you are a Missionary that wishes to present your work at one of our meetings and is sent by a church that affiliates with the ABA, you are welcome to attend and present your work. If this will be your first time, please go to our Contact Page to let us know you'll be attending and to ask any questions you may have.
If you represent a church that is interested in joining our Association, please go to our Beliefs page to determine whether or not your church agrees with our Doctrinal Statement.
