Ministering in 9 Counties
51 Churches in the JST Baptist Association
Purpose of our Associations
1. To foster fellowship among the churches.
2. To assist the churches in strengthening their programs of enlistment, evangelism, teaching,and training.
3. To encourage churches in the establishment of missions and new churches. (Also, to encourage support of local, home and foreign missions through the Cooperate Program.)
4. To promote and work with the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention to carry the gospel to all the world. "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20
Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and The Associations' (Judson, Stewart, & Truett) desire is to do the same. That's why you'll discover we promote and participate in ministries geared to various life stages and needs. That's why we encourage everyone to plug into a local church to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities.
We want you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church. We'll bring you updates often on just what's happening in The Associations (Judson, Stewart Co., Truett) and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in people's lives.
