Our Vision

Before joining any organization you always want to know what you're getting into. And more than that, you want to make sure you believe in the organization and have some questions answered. 

Well here at Bell Shoals we're on a journey to discover and apply the vision God has given us.  It's where Bell Shoal's unique gifts and resources meet the unique challenges and opportunities of West Central Florida and around the world.  

Below, you can read about our vision and the other components that contribute to making this vision a reality. 

Where are we going?

Our dream is to be one church multiplied to transform West Central Florida with the gospel.  


What are we doing?

Our mission at Bell Shoals Baptist Church is to follow Jesus, love people and make disciples.

(Matthew 4:19-20)

He commands His followers to love God and others
(Matthew 22:37-40)

He commissions His followers to make disciples
(Matthew 28:18-20)


Why are we doing it?

Becoming more like Jesus as we glorify God
