Right Beside You
The Florida Baptist Convention exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people everywhere, serving right beside the thousands of churches and pastors shepherding more than 1.1 million Florida Baptists. As the founding charter of the Southern Baptist Convention states, our singular focus is "eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the Baptist denomination of Christians for the propagation of the Gospel."
Florida Baptists serve their state, nation and world through evangelism, church planting, compassionate ministries such as the Florida Baptist Children's Homes and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, kindergarten through doctoral education, and countless other ways animated by our Lord's call to "love our neighbors as ourselves".
Rod D. Martin is honored to serve on the executive committee of the Florida Baptist Convention. The Martin Organization's Statement of Faith is "The Baptist Faith and Message", the official summary of Southern Baptists' beliefs, which we encourage you to read.
