Welcome to the Quad Cities Area Baptist Association Website!

We are a group of eight Southern Baptist churches situated throughout the Quad Cities areas of Rock Island, Henry, Mercer, and Knox Counties in Northwest Illinois. We exist to assist churches in fulfilling the great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20.

Our churches partner together to take the gospel to our communities and throughout the world so that those who are far from God might be brought near through true faith in Jesus Christ.

Our ministries locally are designed to proclaim the gospel and equip those who believe to engage in the mission of Jesus.

Because we are convinced that this mission is given to the church, our ministries are led by local churches partnering together. You can find a complete list of these partnering churches on this site.
