Helping our churches to fulfill the Great Commission
 
 

 About Us:
     
 Welcome to the GTBA

Recognizing both our dependence on the Lord Jesus Christ and our interdependence in carrying out His mission on earth, we exist to assist our member churches in fulfilling the Great Commission by providing: Resources, Leadership Development, Coordination of Cooperative Missions and Encouragement! We are affiliated with the Mississippi Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.

Spring Meeting Highlights

       Our Spring Celebration was inspirational to all who were able to be with us; and Riverside Chapel was a most gracious host. Thank you so much Brother Jim Sallee and  the Church family that welcomed us all and made us feel right at home. A special thanks also to Dr. Roger Orman for coming back home and speaking so directly to us words to encourage our hearts. He had a conversation with us about the facts of living in this culture of sin. 95% of active Evangelicals have never shared their faith with others! There is a need for folks to hear our hearts, and our stories of faith, for though they may know facts about God, they very possibly do not know the Saviour. 

Acts 4:11 talks about Jesus being the Cornerstone of our faith, and we must speak up and be willing to study God’s word daily. Statistics tell us that 85% of our church people have not opened the Bible since the last time they were in church…we are failing to be reading His word. Acts 4 and verse 31 tells us “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” We must be BOLD. May He use us All Around the World!
