On October 16, 1978, messengers across Nevada gathered at the Redrock Church in Las Vegas for the purpose of organizing the Nevada Baptist Convention. At the close of World War II, Southern Baptist families connected with several military bases in Nevada played a leading role in beginning Southern Baptist churches in the state. In 1947, Southern Baptist families employed at the Naval Air Force Base at Babbitt recognized the need for a church. By 1955, enough Southern Baptist churches had been organized in Nevada to form two associations in the state. By 1964, pastors of the two associations met to form a fellowship that became the forerunner of the Nevada Baptist Convention.
The Convention’s annual normally includes the constitution and bylaws, Convention proceedings, directories, executive board and NBC staff reports, financial statements and budgets, statistical reports, and historical tables. The annuals are any word searchable.
