There are more than 15,000 independent Baptist churches in America and at least 10,000 independent Baptist missionaries serving on mission fields worldwide.

Every independent Baptist church is an autonomous congregation. We are self- governing and self-supporting. The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice. It is our desire to be a truly New Testament church.

At Welcome Baptist Church, though we have one message-the message of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one ministry-the ministry He has given us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. In this end A Hispanic ministry in the town of Collinsville, Alabama has flourished with many souls saved and the gospel preached to the Hispanic community. We are proud of our brothers in Christ and marvel at how God has blessed this work.
