OCALA (FBW)—Highlands Baptist Church and Wellspring Church, located less than a mile from each other in the Central Florida town of Ocala, merged on Sept. 7.
Following a six-month-long “Church Unique” revitalization program, Highlands Pastor Chris Gilliam felt inspired to join forces with Wellspring in order to get back to what he felt was the church’s original calling. After unanimous votes by both churches, the merger was confirmed on Aug. 17 after the Highlands’ vote.
Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church, one of the largest African-American Baptist churches in Jacksonville, is in the process of partnering with the predominantly Anglo Ridgewood Baptist Church in Orange Park.
If all goes according to plan, the two congregations will become one church with multiple locations sometime next year.
