Welcome to the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association!

We exist to assist churches in fulfilling the great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20. Our churches partner together to take the gospel to the least reached in the world so that the glory of God might be made known where it is not known and those that are far from God might be brought near through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. To this end, our ministries locally are designed to proclaim the gospel and equip those who believe to engage in the mission of Jesus. Because we are convinced that this mission is given to the church, our ministries are led by local churches partnering together. You can find a complete list of these partnering churches on this site.

Prayer Rally, September 26, 4pm at First Baptist Millersville

Franklin Graham is organizing a Prayer March for our Nation on September 26 citing 2 Samuel 24:25 “Thus the Lord was moved by prayer for the land.”.

While this is happening in Washington D.C., we believe that prayer is foundational in the lives of believers and we are commanded to pray for our leaders. Carol Monteith, member of Cape County Cowboy Church, is organizing a local time for the Church of our region to gather and pray. First Baptist Church of Millersville has graciously agreed to host and is easily accessible on Hwy 72 west of Jackson. We will be outside around the flags as we pray. I am asking that you inform your church so they might join us with one voice. This is not a polictical rally but a prayer rally as God's people assemble to pray for our nation, our families and all those in leadership at every level. Following are specific ways to pray:

  • Humbling ourselves in repentance and asking God to forgive our sins and heal our land
  • Our military, police and other law enforcement, and their families—and security and peace for the nation
  • Salvation of the lost, renewed strength in our families, solutions to the coronavirus pandemic, and an end to abortion
  • The President and the Vice President and their families
  • Compassion and kindness toward one another, respect and reconciliation between races, and healing in communities torn by violence and injustice
  • Religious freedom; and for churches and their pastors to have boldness, to stand firm with the Word of God, and to preach Jesus Christ in a troubled world
  • Our Congress and other leaders at the national, state, and local levels; the Supreme Court, and judges across the nation

I hope many are able to join us on Saturday, September 26, at 4pm!

Association Annual Celebration

The Cape Girardeau Baptist Association will hold its 196th Annual Celebration this year at Lynwood Baptist Church on October 4, Sunday, beginning at 2pm. We expect to conclude at 5:30pm. If you have not sent us the messengers from your church, please do that prior to October 1st. Additionally, you may submit any new business items you would like us to consider in the final segment of our of celebration; we would appreciate having those prior to the Association Council meeting at 10am on October 1 so the council may consider them and already have them on our schedule in an orderly manner. 

Masks are to be worn into the church for the gathering but you may remove them once you are seated in the auditorium. We believe the auditorium is more than sufficient in size to safely social distance for our meeting. We hope to see representation from all our churches for this celebration!
