Founded in 1822 from the Warren Baptist Association, the Old Colony Baptist Association (OCBA) is a network of Baptist churches who come together to do ministry that one church cannot do. As a network of forty-five sister churches in the American Baptist tradition, we cover a region that includes Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket, Bristol, Plymouth, and parts of Norfolk counties. Our congregations range in age from over three hundred and fifty years to less than ten years. As American Baptists, we are the most diverse denomination in the country. OCBA exists for our member churches to offer fellowship and prayer and to feel the love of their sister churches through mutual ministry and mission. We practice local church autonomy. We interpret our Baptist faith in different ways, but we all center our faith on the Bible and lessons of Jesus Christ.
We invite you to visit our churches and get to know us.
