Lake Shipp Baptist Church is proud to partner with the Ridge Baptist Association, the Florida Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. Working together with these organizations allows us to do more than any one church could accomplish on it’s own. As a church, we hold to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 as our statement of belief.
