Save the date for PBA Annual MeetingWelcome to the Philadelphia Baptist Association (PBA) website.

I hope that you will take the time to gain an overview of the ministries and resources of the Philadelphia Baptist Association and ABCUSA.  Our fundamental concern is to continue the tradition of  outstanding American Baptist witness in our region which began in 1707. To that end, we provide a number of supports and relationship building opportunities for member congregations. They are outlined in this website for your review and participation.

Our major emphasis, driven by The PBA Missiological Statement, is to equip congregations to embrace the racial, cultural, and generational shifts of our day with our continuing commitment to sharing the gospel and the social justice it requires. There are no easy answers to the challenges and opportunities before us.  We will discover and our way forward together!

We welcome Baptist congregations who desire to serve together in an exciting and vibrant network of committed disciples called to share our faith.  Become a member of PBA by simply going to our Membership Information page and following the instructions.  Please contact our PBA office for additional information.

Thank you!  Gracias!  Danke!  Paldies!  Kyeizu tin ba de!  Mesi!  Spasibo!  These are some of the languages that represent our culturally and linguistically rich PBA family.

Rev. Dr. James E. McJunkin, Jr.
