The Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) is a cooperative missions and ministry organization that consists of over 1,400 autonomous churches in the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as churches from the states of West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and Minnesota.
Geography does not limit churches from joining the mission and vision of the BGAV. The ministries of the BGAV are coordinated through the Virginia Baptist Mission Board staff who work through five ministry teams who work alongside churches to help them be more effective in their ministries.
The Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) was established in 1823 and it has always existed to “furnish the Baptist churches of Virginia a medium of cooperation for the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and for the advancement of the Redeemer’s Kingdom by all methods in accord with the Word of God.”
