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.
What Stand Between You and Forgiveness?
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
People have the idea today that it’s okay to live in immorality and God is going to overlook their little indiscretions. Is that so? “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7). God doesn’t miss a beat of our lives. He is the righteous judge and will judge accordingly (see Hebrews 13:4).
“Well, Pastor, does that mean if I’ve done any of the things in this passage, I can’t be saved?”
No, it doesn’t. First Corinthians 6:11 promises: “And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
Hallelujah! Note the past-tense there: “…such WERE some of you…” There is no sin so awful that the blood of Christ cannot cleanse. He makes the vilest sinner clean.
Nothing—not your worst offense—stands between you and the Cross…between you and forgiveness…between you and a loving Heavenly Father. Nothing but your hesitation. Come to Him. He longs to receive you.
