Welcome to East Central Baptist Association
ECBA is group of churches that has chosen to work together for the purpose of building Christ’s Kingdom. Our association gladly cooperates with the Southern Baptist Convention as well as the State Convention of Baptists in Indiana. While the autonomy of each church is respected, churches in our association believe we can do more for Christ together than we can individually. All churches associated with ECBA are located in or near Delaware, Blackford, Madison, Randolph, and Jay counties, Indiana.
Together we do the following for Christ’s Kingdom:
- Support Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Ball State University as well as outreach to international students and their wives.
- Provide a disaster relief team to people in need around the United States.
- Encourage evangelism events by making a block party trailer and large tent available to member churches free of charge.
- Provide training for Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, as well as access to our associational library.
- Help churches know of one another’s needs so that sharing of resources can occur.
- Support the starting of new churches.
- Host a monthly luncheon for our pastors.
Meetings are held quarterly and rotate among the different churches. Annual meetings are held in September.
