Praising God for the Increase
Join Us
Welcome to our website

Welcome to the Potomac River Baptist Association website.  Our Moderator, Rev. James F. Harris, Sr., invites you to join with us in this great work of ministry that started in 1900.  Over 100 years later, we are still praising God for the increase, yet knowing that the best is yet to come.

Our purpose is to advance the cause of Christ and true Christianity in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia; to aid churches both financially and educationally; to provide leadership training for the membership and oversight in church planting; to provide spiritual advice in church operations; to enhance church leadership through education training; to circulate the Bible; and to support home and foreign missions.
