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.
What I Learned in a Florida Hurricane!
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”... (Isaiah 41:10)
I was raised in South Florida, in what you might call hurricane alley. When we knew a hurricane was coming, my dad would say, “Boys, go out there in the back yard and tie things down,” patio furniture and things like that. Sometimes we would go out after a hurricane, and the thing we tied down was gone and the thing we tied it to was gone! Now friend, you better be tied to Jesus, He won’t blow away. Where is your hope? Where is your security? What have you lashed your hope to? I hope it’s in the solid rock, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Friend, you’d better be tied to Jesus. He won’t blow away. Where is your hope? Where is your security? What have you anchored your hope to? I hope it’s in the solid rock, the Lord Jesus Christ.
