California Association Celebrates 90th Anniversary

EL MONTE, Calif.—The California Association of Regular Baptist Churches celebrated its 90th anniversary during its Annual Bible Conference April 9–11. First Baptist Church, pastored by Jay Gauthier, hosted the conference.

The CARBC began in 1929 with 11 churches and now includes 94 churches and two camps. Two of the original 11 churches are still part of the association: First Baptist Church in El Monte and First Baptist Church in Wilmington.

During the Annual Bible Conference several CARBC leaders spoke on the theme of God’s faithfulness: David Wilcox and Ron Schrock, former state representatives; Herb Rogers, representative of the southern region of the CARBC; and Bruce McLain, current state representative.
