The Austin Baptist Association seeks to assist member churches to start new works as well as support new churches as they grow into healthy, sustainable congregations.
In studying demographics in late 2010, the ABA discovered that a conservative estimate of 84% of the population of Austin claim to be unaffiliated with evangelicals. With a metropolitan population of over 1.7 million people, this statistic means that about 1.4 million people in our city do not believe in Jesus. There is no question that ABA congregations are doing some really wonderful things to reach Austin, but doing good is not good enough as we continue to lose ground.
Based on the current population growth and traditional church planting methods, the task of reaching Austin seems insurmountable. The ABA desires to partner with member churches to take steps to close the gap on lostness in Austin. The ABA has partnered with member churches to start over 40 churches in the last twelve years. Most of these new churches continue to flourish and some of them have even started new churches.
Currently, the ABA is financially supporting eight new works. It is our desire to partner with YOU to start a new work to reach our city.
Take a look at the new works that the ABA is currently supporting in some aspect:
