Baldwin’s Church Turns 30…

From the Pensacola News Journal:

The Rev. Chuck Baldwin had a flock of six when he founded Crossroad Baptist Church in 1975 in Brownsville.

Baldwin was 23 years old, but most thought he was 16 and pulling their leg when he knocked on their door, preaching the word of God.

But Sunday, at 6800 Mobile Highway, about 600 people, including local politicians and guests, helped Baldwin celebrate his church’s 30th anniversary.

Crossroad Baptist Church now is 1,000 members strong, and Baldwin, 53, is firmly at the helm, accompanied by his wife, Connie.

And the church is growing. A new sanctuary is being built next door on the church’s property near the Pensacola Fairgrounds.

Baldwin’s conservative Christian message on his radio show, “Chuck Baldwin Live,” is broadcast 36 times a week over several area radio stations. He is a syndicated national newspaper columnist and posts articles on the Internet.

Baldwin was selected as the candidate for vice president on the Constitution Party’s presidential ticket in 2004.

“We have felt God’s presence and power from day one, and we continue to grow over the years,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin also credited the congregation for helping him through the early difficult times.

He continues to press his message and said it is crucial for other Christian leaders to stand up and speak the word of God.

Escambia County Commissioner Tom Banjanin, State Attorney Bill Eddins, state Rep. Dave Murzin, R-Pensacola, and Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David Stafford were among the guests Sunday.

“(Baldwin) is a true patriot and stands up for Christian values,” said Banjanin, a close friend of Baldwin for close to 28 years. “He is not afraid to speak up for what is right.”
