About Us

The purpose of the Altahama-New Sunbury Baptist Association is to join together for the glory and work of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We work together to promote unity, fellowship, and growth among Baptist churches. We work to further the Christian spirit in cooperation among Baptist Associations, the Baptist State Convention of Georgia, and the Southern Baptist Convention. We share in partnership ministries with other organizations whose goals and purposes are in harmony with those of our Association.

The membership of the Altahama-New Sunbury Baptist Association is composed of cooperating Baptist churches. A cooperating church is one that supports the purpose of the Association and has been accepted as a member of the Association. Currently, we are made up of 100 member churches along with five mission churches.

Today’s church faces unprecedented challenges with rapid cultural change, extreme diversity, and transitioning communities. However, these challenges also bring new opportunities for churches to impact their communities. Effective churches are passionately pursuing innovative strategies to meet these new challenges.

We are ready to assist all of our churches with resources that help fulfill their commitment to the Great Commission.

Proven Leadership

There are times in the life of a church's ministry when we need a litle additional help.  Recently our dear pastor of 38 years passed away unexpectedly.  The Altamaha-New Sunbury Baptist Association was quick to respond when we contacted them.  They helped our church find an interim pastor as well as helped us establish a Pastor Search Committee with all the tools we need to quickly find our next pastor.  We never missed a step thanks to their leadership.
