About Us



Who We Are…

About Us - PhotoThe Knoxville District Baptist Association, Inc. (KDBA) is made up of 38 bible-based churches who are dedicated to making a difference in our local churches and surrounding communities. We are determined to see through “new eyes” with a focus on missions.  We believe that “missions” involves two action words: aiding (helping) and evangelizing.  Our definition of “missions” is a service that meets both the physical and spiritual needs of an individual.  It is meeting people at their point of need with a view toward persuading them to look unto Jesus as Saviour and Deliverer.”


What We Do…..

As stated in our Constitution, the objectives of this Body are to perpetuate Evangelism, Missions, and Education.

The KDBA assembles as a body of believers at various pre-planned Associational Programs that include, but are not limited to the following:  District Choir Day, World Day of Prayer, Foreign Mission Day, District Night In White (Women’s Program), Scholarship Day, LeMoyne-Owen College Day, District Night In Black (Men’s Program), District Ushers Day, Scholarship Day and the Annual District Scholarship Banquet.

We also convene at quarterly Board Meetings to fellowship through spiritual programs, as well as discuss educational and business items of interest.


How to Help…..

The KDBA is composed of messengers from Missionary Baptist churches in good standing and who are in harmony with the spirit and objective of the Association.  If you are a member of one of the churches in our District, we ask that you prayerfully considering becoming an active part of our District.  We need your prayers and your input.  Please speak to your Pastor about ways to become an active part of the Knoxville District.
