  American Baptist Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though the American Baptist Association (distinct from the American Baptist Churches in the USA) was organized in 1924, the ABA stems from an independent "New Testament Church" movement, also known as Landmarkism.
A move for unification of the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas and the General Association came to fruition at Texarkana, Texas in 1924.
The General Association adjourned 'sine die,' and was replaced by the newly formed American Baptist Association (ABA).

 CHAPTER VII   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Beginning with the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas in 1900 and the General Association of Arkansas Baptist Churches in 1902, the summary included also state associations in Mississippi, Missouri, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, as well as the national associations: Baptist General Association (1905), American Baptist Association (1924), and North American Baptist Association (1950).
Associational Baptists, however, apparently were more consistent in their Landmarkism, especially in the belief in tenet number "VI." The clash of personalities was probably heightened in intensity because of these differences in opinion in ecclesiology.
As to the role ecclesiological differences had in the delay until 1924 of a union of Associational Baptists in a national association, the answer is again related primarily to a difference in missions philosophy.
