About KABC

Karbi Anglong is a district situated in the central part of Assam. It is bounded by Golaghat district in the east, Meghalaya and Morigaon district in the west, Nagaon and Golaghat district in the north and Dima Hasao district and Nagaland in the south. 

The district with dense tropical forest covered hills and flat plains is situated between 250 33' N to 26035' N Latitude and 92010' to 93050' E Longitude. 

More than 60 percent of the population is from the Hill tribes. At present, however, the district is composed of various ethnic, linguistic, traditional and cultural backgrounds.

Back in 1859, the first missionaries from USA brought the Gospel to this part of the country. Some of those missionaries who came to Karbi Anglong were: Rev. Cyrus Fisher Tolman, Rev. Edward P. Scott, Rev. Robert E. Neighbor, Rev. Penn E. Moore, Rev. John Moses Carvel, Rev. Oscar L. Swanson, Rev. William Ralph Hutton and Rev. Maxwell J. Chance.

The need of forming a Convention was felt in order to have fellowship and strengthened the Baptist churches among the various tribes, such as the Karbis, the Garos, the Rengmas, the Adivasis, the Nepalies, the Kacharies, and other smaller tribes living in the area. The first meeting was held in November 1980. Since, Karbi are majority as well as the name of the district, it was decided to name "Karbi Anglong Baptist Convention."

By 1992, the convention has 190 churches affiliated with about 13,401 baptized members.

At present the Karbi Anglong Baptist Convention comprises of 13 associations with 314 local churches having a little more than 32,192 baptized members. Rev. Davidson Ingti is the Regional Secretary of the convention.
