Welcome! Glad You Stopped By!
West Florida Baptist Association is a voluntary fellowship of Southern Baptist Churches in the Washington County area working together to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We assist in proclaiming the Gospel to the lost, discipling Christians, and ministering to the needs of our community in the name of Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to promote fellowship among the Churches and to encourage missionary and evangelism work in every Church of the Association. We also carry out community ministries throughout the Association that would not be possible by any one Church. We keep an open line of communication between the Churches and both the Florida and Southern Baptist Conventions.
Jesus said, "In as much as ye have done it to one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me." (The Holy Bible, Matthew 25:40).
The Association exists to serve you. If we may be of service to you please contact us through the information listed under "Contact Us". You are invited to explore our website for more information on our Churches and mission ministries. We also invite you to visit us at the Associational office located at 1641 Brickyard Road in Chipley, Florida (west of Chipley High School). Our Director of Missions will be glad to visit with you and answer any questions you may have.
Children Need a Warrior Mother
“For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him.” 1 Samuel 1:27
There is a war against motherhood today. We’re in trouble—like a ship lost at sea on a dark night. We’ve lost our compass. The anchor is gone. The anchor of every society is the family and home. What anchors the home? Mothers. The head of the home is the father, but the heart of the home is the mother. A father has influence on a child, but the deepest impression is made by a mother. Mothers are perhaps the most powerful and influential force on the face of the earth. Hannah prayed and was so persuasive she changed the course of history. Begin to pray for your children before they’re born. There is nothing greater than to raise a baby for Jesus Christ. The great theologian Augustine was a renegade boy, but he could not escape the prayers of his mother, Monica. Oh, the power of persuasion.
It’s an incredible thing to pray right out of the Bible, because you know your prayer lines up with the will of God if it comes out of the Word of God. Let me give you a prayer Joyce and I have prayed for our children right from the Word of God, Ephesians 3:14 -21.
