Stories

Listen to stories from our congregation.

Imperfect people.

The Church is no more, and no less, than the people who gather here to worship. God has blessed Fort Caroline with a wonderful, diverse collection of people. Below, enjoy four stories from members of our congregation. No perfect people allowed.

Kevin & Lisa’s journey through losing a child and having another child with cerebral palsy.

“Eight months into the pregnancy, we ended up losing one (of the twins). It was pretty traumatic for us… We actually had a doctor tell us, 'so your daughter is going to have special needs and you two will probably be divorced in a year due to statistics so here’s your child'."

Willie & Tameshia’s journey through heart changes that led to major life changes.

"I just felt hopeless and I knew I needed to do something, but I didn’t know what to do… I put my trust in the Lord. He did a lot of miracles in my life. A lot… My relationship with Christ is so good. He is still continuing to make me new."

Larry Weaver’s journey to rediscovering Jesus.

“We visited several churches... but I must say that really the turning point was Ricky and his preaching. I often say to other people that he is the best preaching pastor I’ve ever heard… It’s a good time in the life of Fort Caroline Baptist Church."

Shaun & Anika’s journey through a difficult pregnancy of twins.

“They let us know from the get-go that it would be a complicated pregnancy… [The twins] came 3 months early... and they both weighed 1 lb 11 oz each... The whole time, I believed that they were going to be okay and I don’t think I would have been able to believe it had we not had our faith in God and the support we were getting from family and people at the church."
