Our Mission

Vision Statement:

The Shelby Baptist Association works in partnership with her member churches of Shelby County to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through missions and ministries both locally and throughout the world. Our vision is to see each church work individually and collectively to make Christ known through an authentic Christ-like discipleship, demonstrating the relevance of Jesus to a world in need of love and purpose. We are on a mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ by meeting the needs of those we encounter.

Mission Statement:

“Making Disciples by Meeting Needs in Cooperation with Our Member Churches.”
