Our Mission Statement: The BGAV (General Association) is a missionary movement unleashing the power of the resurrected Christ through the local church for the renewal of all things.
BGAV is a cooperative missions and ministry organization that consists of over 1,360 autonomous churches in the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as churches from Seoul, South Korea, Toronto, Ontario, the District of Columbia, and the states of California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.
Geography does not limit churches from joining the mission and vision of the BGAV. The ministries of the BGAV are coordinated through the staff who work through five ministry teams who work alongside churches to help them be more effective in their ministries.
The Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) was established in 1823 and it has always existed to “furnish the Baptist churches of Virginia a medium of cooperation for the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and for the advancement of the Redeemer’s Kingdom by all methods in accord with the Word of God.”
