A Family of Churches

Welcome to the Weakley County Baptist Association website!

 

 
 
Weakley County Baptists greet you in the Spirit of Christ and the Love of God.
 
We are a family of 45 cooperating Baptist churches affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. We are motivated by a desire to serve the Lord by serving people. What ever your need is, we hope there will be something here that will help you in your daily life. 
 Our Purpose:
 We have no reason to exist except as a servant of the churches. We are here to 
resource the churches, to encourage pastors, and to promote the carrying out of the
Great Commission as a community of churches.
 
Core Values:
We have discovered four core values that drive our association. They are:
1. Evangelism: We will desire to see the lost brought to a saving knowledge of Christ.
2. Ministry: We will minister to the spiritual and physical needs of people.
3. Missions: We will obey the Great Commission. Matthew 28:18-20.
4. Training: We will train believers to be like Jesus in every way possible.

The local missions team enjoyed a work day at Liberty Baptist Church near Dresden. The team helped paint the exterior of the fellowship hall and lay new flooring in the kitchen area.
