About Us Marion Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Churches that chose to cooperate together for ministry, accountability, evangelism, and strategic and healthy church growth. We stand ready to come alongside the local church with opportunities to connect in leadership development, church planting, and mission engagement in central Florida and beyond. We celebrate our diversity and our commitment to work together to mobilize believers across the nations.MembershipThe churches of MBA are family. Our identity challenges us at times while affording us opportunity to learn from each other and celebrate our diversity. We are learning to care for each other, support each other, and pray for each other so that our witness will strengthen the evangelical witness in our communities and beyond. We are learning each day to be intentional and aggressive in developing new and authentic relationships in our communities. We believe that when we really care, we will have opportunities to tell others of Jesus who first loved us. We appreciate our denomination's commitment to evangelism and global missions. We support those Great Commission causes because of our God's Great Commandment to love Him and to love others. We are working hard at loving others so that we can lead them to a loving relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ.
