Welcome to our Website

The American Baptist Newspaper is one of the oldest African-American newspapers in the United States of America. Founded by members of the General Association of Baptists in Kentucky, this publication has served the need of Missionary Baptists across the country since 1878.

Currently the Newspaper continues the work under the auspecies of the Publishing Board of the GABNKY, Inc. in partnership with the General Association of Baptists in Kentucky.  We are now branching out into electronic media . . . specifically, the internet/online editions, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Our calling remains the same: "to serve this present age."

We invite you to subscribe to the Paper. Our present rates are:
One Year - $50.00
Six Months - $25.00
Three Months - $12.50

In addition, we will soon be moving to our online edition. We are currently in the beta testing stage. You can view the papers and purchase individual copies for just $2.00 using your debit or credit card.
