Welcome members, visitors and guests to the online home of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina; GBSConline.org. While you are here it is our hope that you take note of our missions activity and support us in it.

The General Baptist State Convention dates its service of promoting “missions” and representing Baptists throughout North Carolina back to 1867, when a small band of free African-Americans, freedmen, ex-slaves and white ministers from the Baptist State Convention met to better promote the work of Evangelism and Kingdom Building. We were called at that time, the General Association of the Colored Baptist of North Carolina and we were formed to support the “Gospel ministry and to promote missions.”

The name of our organization has changed since 1867 but our core reason for being has remained the same; to support  the “Gospel ministry and to promote missions”, this is who we are.



Dr. Nilous M. Avery, II, President of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina

The English word mission comes from the Latin word for send. In each of the verses to be mentioned there is the concept of being sent. In Matthew 28:19, “…Go Ye”; Acts 1:8, “ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth; and II Corinthians 5:20, “…we are ambassadors” (for someone sent) Jesus not only calls us to come to Him, but He Commissions us to go for Him.

Jesus states this in John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent Me, even so send I you” (KJV). This call to missions that Jesus charged the early Christians with is a charge that we of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina are bound by and have been actively engaged in since 1867. We invite you to join, participate in and support all the activities our Convention.
