The Conservative Baptist Association of the Southeast was organized and formed in the state of Alabama at the Oak Ridge Baptist Church in St.Clair County. At a meeting called by Oak Ridge Pastor, Rev.George B. Harris, messagers from eighteen Baptist churches came from four southeastern states; on June 13, 1995. The Messagers discussed the future of the Southern Baptist Convention and by resolution declared their independence due to theological differences.

The states included where Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. The change in allegiance was not felt by the Southern Baptist for many of the churches were from the Missionary Baptist and independent Baptist churches.

The CBA of the Southeast bases more time and resources on the mission at home (in America) rather than to vest the resources on international missions. The CBA of the Southeast is not in any way affiliated with the Conservative Baptist Association of America.
