affiliating with Tri-County

A church may affiliate with Tri County Southern Baptist Association if its faith and practice are in agreement with the basic beliefs held in common by this association of Baptist churches. The historic Baptist Faith and Message statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention, June 14, 2000, best describes the basic beliefs held in common by this association of Baptist churches. Each church shall cooperate in spirit, financial support, and involvement with the other affiliated churches in achieving the stated purpose of the association.


A church may seek to affiliate with the Association by presenting a letter of petition to the Administrative Team. This team will determine from the documents received from the petitioning church if that church conforms to section one above. The church will officially be presented and voted upon by the messengers at the next Annual Meeting. The church shall have access to all Associational resources upon approval of the Administrative Team.
