WHO WE ARE
In the late 1990s, two associations; Lakeland and Northern Ohio, merged together as the NorthCoast Baptist Association and recognized their affiliation with the State Convention of Baptists Ohio. Over the years the association has celebrated thousands of baptisms and congregational growth. To date, we have 34 active autonomous congregations belonging to the NorthCoast Baptist Association.
Our vision is to reach the north coast of Ohio and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We desire to make disciples and develop leaders within the Church at large. Our mission is to strengthen established congregations so that they will become healthy enough to sponsor and start new congregations. We will partner and cooperate together for the greatest Kingdom impact - Jesus' Kingdom and not our own.
In Matthew 9, Jesus looks at the cities and villages of people with compassion and says that the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. He then directs His disciples to pray for workers in the harvest fields and sends them out in chapter 10. We are the workers for the harvest fields.
