First Baptist Church of Tampa partners with other churches through the Tampa Bay Baptist Association, Florida Baptist Convention, and Southern Baptist Convention. We affirm the divine inspiration of Scripture and hold the Bible as inerrant and absolutely authoritative for faith and practice. Our congregation affirms the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.
We believe that God has placed us at the heart of Tampa to be Thriving individuals in a Thriving church in a Thriving city. This is accomplished by each person Digging In to the Word of God, Growing Up in the faith as an individual and part of the faith community, and Branching Out to make a real difference in Tampa and beyond.
