We at Winter Park’s First do not see our church limited to the walls and property we own. We believe in missions at home, around the United States and the world. That mission work may be evangelistic in nature or it may be social providing for the physical needs of people.
HOW WE ARE AFFILIATED
Winter Park’s First Baptist Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention. As such, we financially participate with over 40,000 other cooperating churches in the support of over 10,000 missionaries and their work through the International Mission Board, the North American Mission Board. A portion of our giving goes to support six seminaries, the Florida Baptist Convention and the Greater Orlando Baptist Association. In addition, we provide monetary support to other select groups as we see needs.
WHERE WE HAVE BEEN
Our own members participate in a variety of mission projects throughout the world: From hurricane Katrina relief efforts in New Orleans to dental and construction work in Brazil; From a year of building a Habitat for Humanity house in Winter Park to shorter education efforts in Southeast Asia; From inner city clean-up efforts in South Carolina to construction work in Haiti; From providing volunteers for the Winter Park Children’s Fishing Rodeo to the work of our Sidewalk Sunday School which goes into local neighborhoods each week.
WHERE WE ARE GOING
We will go wherever God leads us to go. We seek God’s will regarding opportunities locally and globally.
