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).

You Can Be Saved Now
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
( John 19:30)
Young Billy Sunday was born into poverty in Iowa. His father had been killed in the Civil War when Billy was only 5 weeks old. He spent some time in an orphanage. But because he was a natural-born athlete, he became a major-league baseball player for the Chicago White Stockings (White Sox, today).
One day on a street corner, he and some fellow ballplayers stopped to hear a Gospel team from a local mission. Billy Sunday was saved. His teammates and even his fans noticed the change in him. Soon he left baseball to become an evangelist himself. He was one of the most celebrated preachers of the early 1900s. He dined with Presidents—but his greatest appeal was to the common folks who came to his revival meetings.
After a meeting ended one day, a young man who had been in the service and under great conviction found Billy Sunday and earnestly pleaded, “Oh Mr. Sunday! I need to be saved! What can I do to be saved?” Billy said, “I’m sorry. You’re too late.” The young man said, “Oh, but I wanted to be saved. I should have been saved. What must I do to be saved?” And Billy Sunday said, “You’re too late to do anything to be saved, for Jesus has already done it all. It’s finished. All you need to do is receive what He’s already done.” Then and there he led the young man to Jesus.
Upon the cross, with His last word, the Lord Jesus Christ cried out, “It is finished!” The work of redemption was done. What must you do to be saved? There’s nothing more for you to do than to receive what Jesus has already done.
