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.
We to provide assistance to our affiliated Churches for such things as local, national, and international mission opportunities, leadership training and evangelism, church polity issues, staff resume' assistance, event planning and any other needs as requested by our member churches.
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 "Our Ministries". 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 Associational Missions Strategist will be glad to visit with you and answer any questions you may have.
Do We Worry Too Much?
“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit unto his stature?”...
The best thing you can say about worry: It does no good. The worst thing: It does much harm.
I’m reminded of the little lady who said, “Don't tell me worry doesn't do any good. Most of the things I worry about never happen.”
But worse than that, it’s an expression of unbelief. Of lack of faith in God. It reveals that we are not trusting Him at that moment for the thing we are worried about.
Worry is absolutely useless. It doesn't cure any problems. It doesn't lift any burdens. It doesn't wipe away any tears. It never has; it never can; it never will! Worry can’t make you any taller, shorter, fatter, or thinner. It is so senseless, and it is therefore useless. But even worse, it is faithless. Worry is just the opposite of faith.
God has lovingly told us: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
ACTION POINT:When we worry, we make God out to be a liar when God has said He will take care of us. It would help you to memorize Philippians 4:6-7 today.
