The National Baptist Convention of America, Inc. (or NBCA) is an African-American Baptist body organized in 1915 as the result of a struggle to keep the National Baptist Publishing Board of Nashville independent. Those rejecting a proposed new charter, incorporation, and ownership of the publishing board withdrew from the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.. In 1995, the NBCA had about 1,700,000 members in 6,716 churches.
