The Limestone Baptist Association was organized in 1915 and is, currently, 105 years old. We offer ministerial support to the 37 Southern Baptist churches in Limestone county. Our mission is to equip churches for spiritual growth, engage the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and encourage the saints around us to share the Gospel. In addition to serving our local churches, we also manage Camp Helen. Please look around our website for detailed information about how we can serve you! God Bless!
