Welcome 


            

Welcome to Caroline Baptist Association

The Caroline Baptist Association is made up of 34 Southern Baptist churches from Lonoke and Prairie counties in east central Arkansas. The association is here to serve as a resource and an encouragement to all of our churches in support and doing missions locally, and beyond. 

Training events during the year are provided to encourage our churches in  their work in sharing the gospel.  During the summer months we provide a summer camp for Youth and Children to give our churches a camp that is affordable. Our camp has programing for both the children and youth the same week.  We have seen many children and youth come to Christ over the last 10 years of providing SummerLIVE camp, and we give our Lord the praise!

This next year in 2020, our main emphasis is to encourage our church leaders and pastors to be more focused than ever on PRAYER.  We are currently asking all of our churches to pray for (1) church per month and get their people activated to be much more dependant on God, on behalf of others, and also in the work and ministries of their local church and its work for the Kingdom.  

So, for Caroline Baptist Association, our focus for 2020 will be to PRAY,  Pray, pray.  God is honored and will be faithful to guide and work, if we but just ask HIM to.  In the sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7:7-8 Jesus said, "Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; for everyone who asks receives; and he that seeks will find, and to him that knocks, it shall be opened."  Can you imagine if God's people and our churches prioritized our lives around this instruction from our Lord, what then would be accomplished? 

May our Lord bless you this next year, in 2020,  and I pray we are all much more focused on seeking the will of our Lord in ALL we do.

Always Thankful,

Bro. Jerry,  Association Missionary
