The First Baptist Church of Ocoee is an Independent Baptist church located in the heart of Central Florida on the west side of Orlando, FL. We are less than a mile from FLORIDA'S TURNPIKE and just a few blocks north of S.R. 50. Our church is easily accessible from anywhere in the greater Orlando area, and we are just twenty-five minutes from the attractions.
 
There are more than 15,000 Independent Baptist churches in America and at least 10,000 Independent Baptist missionaries serving on mission fields worldwide.
 
As an Independent Baptist church, we value the rich history of Baptists down through the ages from the time of Christ until the present. J.L.M. Curry said, “A history of the Baptists should be understood in its objects and aims; and cleared, in the beginning, of misapprehension and perversion. It is not the history of a nationality, a race, an organization, but of a people, ‘traced by their vital principles and gospel practices.’”  Because Baptists are characterized by “their vital principles and gospel practices,” adherence to the Scriptures in rule and practice is absolutely essential. The health and vitality of a New Testament church is dependent upon this fact. Therefore, we have purposed to make the Bible our sole authority for faith and practice.
 
We believe in the autonomy of the local church, which means that we are self-governing and self-supporting. We receive no external assistance in the maintenance of our ministry, and we answer to no denominational hierarchy in matters of faith and conscience.
 
We believe our most important duty is to bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, and we strive to do so through obedience to the Lord’s Great Commission to “preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15) We endeavor to do this through local church evangelism and world-wide missions. We currently support 38 missionaries around the globe and desire to see that number grow as the Lord provides.
 
We look forward to seeing you with us as the Lord allows, and we hope that our website will be a blessing to you.
 
Thanks for stopping by and God bless you.
