About Us

The Louisville Regional Baptist Association is a network of over 160 autonomous Baptist churches in the four-county area of Bullitt, Jefferson, Oldham, and Spencer that join to do ministries together that they could not do apart.

LRBA has been serving the Greater Louisville Metro area for over two centuries. The Greater Louisville Metro area, which is the sixteenth largest city in the United States, comprises over 1,000,000 people.

In 1803, the same year that Lewis and Clark began their expedition, twenty-four churches gathered at the Long Run Baptist Church. United in purpose and vision, they joined their resources in an effort to carry out the Great Commission.

Over two centuries have passed, yet our focus remains consistent. There are still people who need to know the marvelous grace that God has to offer. There are still those who need guidance to continue in the grace that they have learned. There are still some who need encouragement from and fellowship of other believers.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of this association of churches is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost world and to impact significantly the lostness in the Louisville Metro area for the glory of God.
