Providence Baptist Church is a local congregation of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We exist to bring glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ as a local church here on the Nature Coast of west central Florida.

Our name is not arbitrary, but was chosen to reflect our identity.

We incorporate the word Providence to reflect our conviction that, "God the good creator of all things, in His infinite power and wisdom, doth uphold, direct, dispose, and govern all His creatures and things, from the greatest even to the least, by His most wise and holy providence, to the end for which they were created . . ." (Paragraph 1, Chapter 5, 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith). Such providence has in our time brought together in this place a body of Christian believers of one heart and one mind.

Baptist is a term used to distinguish our convictions in certain areas of faith and practice from other religious assemblies. Baptists have historically held that the Holy Bible is God’s Word and is sufficient in all matters of faith and practice. Recognizing that some in our day who bear the name may not be reflective of such convictions, we unashamedly are.

Church is what we are by organization.  We are not a man-made institution, but an ecclesiastical institution established by God with Christ as the head.

We hope you enjoy our website and extend to you an invitation to come and worship with us when visiting, or passing through, our area.
