Florida Baptist Witness has published stories of the Florida Baptist churches and associations since 1884.

  • Once published monthly as a paid subscription, we’re now publishing Florida Baptist stories and news as we become aware of them.
  • More great FBC content is our goal!
  • And it’s FREE here (as we transition to a more-permanent web area Spring 2018) for everyone as a non-subscription service.

Witness News is information, articles, and encouragement from the Florida Baptist Convention.
Church Stories are articles and submissions. We are governed by the FBSC Board of Directors.
