The South Yadkin Baptist Association consists of 62 Baptist churches in 6 counties. Formed in 1873, SYBA is governed by a local Board of Directors and exists to serve member churches.
Our Mission is to Serve and Equip our Churches to Fulfill the Great Commission.
Our vision is to serve our South Yadkin Baptist Association churches, so they fulfill the Great Commission. We aspire to design services and tools specific to their needs to equip them to serve Christ effectively, fulfill their calling to disciple and reach those unchurched in our community. We aspire to bring value to our churches and help them to be and do all that God has called of them for His Kingdom.
Our five values of the South Yadkin Baptist Association define the way we do ministry together as a network of churches. The drive behind our values is a solid faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to fulfill our calling to serve, equip, encourage and care for our churches, pastors and their staff.
Partner in Prayer
We encourage and pray for our pastors, churches and unchurched friends through planned events and systems to pray corporately, in small groups and through our prayer network.
We appreciate our pastors and will give care, personal visits and consistent contact with associational leaders to affirm their ministry in the local church.
Do More Together
We engage our churches in relationship with each other to network on initiatives to build the body of Christ and proclaim the name of Christ in our community and wherever God leads.
Help Fulfill Ministry Needs
We help, provide and assist churches with resources to fulfill their mission and help them minister to needs.
Mobilize to Share Christ’s Love
We mobilize churches to share the gospel with unchurched friends in our community, some of whom will accept Christ as Savior.
