The General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina Marks its official beginning in 1867 when Black Baptists in 3 distinct areas-Goldsboro, Wilmington, and Raleigh-realized the need to form an association to support the educational and missionary efforts of the church.


This humble beginning created a united community of men and women that spanned the length and breath of North Carolina. This Community created a governing charter, constitution and Government formalized into a “Convention.” What began as a small band of dedicated believers from Wilmington, Goldsboro and Raleigh, dedicated to the  “Gospel ministry and to promote missions,”now spans all 100 counties of North Carolina and includes hundreds of thousands of members.


In 1867 a small band of Baptist wanted to give form to their faith by giving birth to an organization that would put missions into action. This “action”, missions took the form of building and sustaining institutions of Christian education, feeding and housing the poor and less fortunate and protecting the orphans. Names and faces have changed since then but our core reason for being, missions, guides all of our activity and objectives today.


North Carolina is the only State in the Union, where there is only one convention, the General Baptist State Convention. All other states have several conventions. We believe it is due in large measure to our unerring dedication to promote the Gospel ministry through the “action” of missions.


It was missions given to us in the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ that formed the basis for the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. It is missions that is our reason for being today, and it is missions that we invite you to as we take up the challenge given to us by Jesus 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).
