It is to be remembered that there are many Baptist groups and associations existing even before the formation of KABC. All of them are small and weak yet exist independently. When KABC was formed by the initiative of the three associations (i.e. PKBA, NKBA and WRBA), some of these Baptist groups expressed their willingness to affiliate with KABC. Simple affiliation norms were laid down for these groups to become a member of KABC.
1. Dhansiri Valley Baptist Association (DVBA): The Adivasi and Garo Baptist Christians living in the east Karbi Anglong who were part of the Assam Baptist Convention were the first to get them affiliated to KABC in 1984. At that time they have 12 churches with 508 Baptised members.
