Who We Are 

MISSION: We partner to unify, encourage, and equip churches to make disciples.

PURPOSE: Our purpose is to be obedient to God’s commands to go, reach, and teach all people to become Christ like.
VISION: We envision all Orange Blossom Baptist Association churches as being healthy and thriving, building and advancing God’s Kingdom.
     To that end, we will:
     1.   Assist member churches in carrying out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ as
           stated in Matthew 28:19-20.
     2.   Promote and nurture fellowship among member churches, pastors, staff, and retired ministers.
     3.   Promote mission education, support and involvement in our world mission causes by helping
           persons understand the role of the local church, association, state convention and the Southern
           Baptist Convention.
     4.   Encourage a cooperative spirit among churches in support of world missions through the
           Cooperative Program, and the voluntary assistance of our sister churches one with another.
     5.   Strengthen member churches according to their expressed needs and the ability of the
           association to respond.
     6.   Encourage the establishment of mew churches and missions.
     7.   Encourage the establishment of community ministries for the purpose of sharing Jesus Christ
           and God’s love to all persons.
     8.   Communicate information of the work of our denomination so that our churches may be
           informed about the resources available to them.
