Association: Local independent Baptist churches in fellowship and mission

The Association of Grace Baptist Churches (SE) is celebrating its 150th anniversary this September and Grace Publications are releasing Association in collaboration with the celebration.

The book seeks to argue that associations are essential for the longterm health of local churches and is written by an assembled team of scholars and pastors who make the case for associations through scriptural exegesis, historical anecdote, and contemporary application. For them, more can be done together, as local churches associate for fellowship and mission.

The book is available for preorder through the Grace Publications website here.

Copies will also be available at the celebration conference on Saturday 25 September at Homerton Baptist Church in East London, near the Olympic Park.

The theme of the day is ‘Let brotherly love continue’. Mark Dever will speak at two morning sessions – on Jonathan Edwards, and on the importance of ecclesiology – and Paul Smith from Broadstairs will tell the Association’s story. Dever will also preach in the afternoon session.
