Church Description
Ashland Baptist Church was founded on April 19, 1879, and has a long history of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serving God to grow His Kingdom. We are members of the Heart of Missouri Baptist Association, Missouri Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. We are actively growing in and desire to continue to grow with our community. We have several ministries that help us to pursue our goals as a body of focusing on our upward relationship with God, our inward relationships within the body of Christ, and our outward relationship with our community and the world around us for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our ABC Kids ministry has flourished in the last couple years and now serves over 30 children during our Wednesday night ministry of TeamKid for children. Over the last several years, IMPACT youth group has watched high schoolers grow in their faith as they are challenged and encouraged to live a life that reflects Christ. We are currently working toward starting a young adult ministry that will reach the various college and career individuals that are currently attending ABC and that are within the church’s vicinity that do not have a church home. We average 170 in attendance on Sunday mornings and our LifeGroups are thriving with more than 80 in attendance any given week. We are a growing church that also desires each person that attends ABC to be known and welcomed.
