Welcome to Laurens Baptist Association

The Laurens Baptist Association is network of 46 Southern Baptist Churches who serve Jesus Christ here in Laurens County. Our goal as churches is to work together to build the Kingdom of God together. We really believe that we are better together! If you have questions about our site or our Association, please feel free to get into contact with us.

A bit confused by the LAURENS ISLAND website address? Obviously, Laurens County South Carolina is not surrounded by water and therefore would not qualify for the designation of being an island. The “Island” terminology is a reminder of something we believe is very important. Interested into what that is? Feel free to click About .
