 Welcome to the Mother Lode Baptist Association website
 
We are a network of Baptist churches in several counties of the California Mother Lode region.  We encourage and strengthen our member churches and leaders in fulfilling the Great Commission in our local setting and beyond.  We are not a church, but we assist our member churches to do their work by networking together to reach and serve the communities within our area.
