WHAT IS BASELA?

BASELA (Baptist Associations of Southeast Louisiana) is a cooperating group of Baptist Associations consisting of Two Rivers Baptist Association, William Wallace Baptist Association, and Washington Baptist Association representing nearly one hundred separate Baptist Churches all working together to make disciples for the Kingdom of God.

Our primary purpose is serving together to equip and enable churches to make disciples of Christ from neighborhoods to nations for the glory of God!

What Do We Do

BASELA in association with its ministry teams aid churches in fulfilling this purpose by training, encouraging, and equipping leaders, connecting people in ministry, facilitating cooperative missions and ministry opportunities (including disaster relief, prison ministry, compassion ministry etc.), and promoting the health of local congregations.
