Missionary Baptist Association of India is a fellowship of Missionary Baptist Churches in India. Since about 1975 to 2013 it was known as the Kerala Missionary Baptist Association. In 2013 the Association developed and changed its name into Missionary Baptist Association of India (Reg. No. 260/IV/2013). The churches who are participating with this association are dedicated to associate with each other and to work for the development of the local churches and the glory of god.
The work of Missionary Baptist Church in India started by Rev. Dr. P.J. Abraham and his wife Elizabeth Abraham in 1970. He was sent as a missionary Pastor from Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, Arkansas. They chose the place named ‘MANNUTHY’ in Trichur district, to work as their mission field. After two years he started also a Bible School in a rented house. Within a few years, the work spread in Kerala and was established about forty-two mission fields.
With the fellowship of those local churches an association formed named Kerala Missionary Baptist Association. Rev. Dr. P.J. Abraham was the President of this association for many years. After the death of Rev. Dr. P.J. Abraham, Rev. P.J. Mamman and then Rev. C.I. Jose became the President of it. During his time the Association changed its name to Missionary Baptist association of India. After his death, Rev. Mathew Jacob became the President for four years and now Rev. P.S. Mammachan is the President of it.
