Who we are
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our church family and community of faith.
In the Fall of 2005, a small group began meeting together in worship and Bible study with a vision to establish a new church in Tallahassee, Florida. Chapel Hill Baptist Church was the result of that vision and was organized in 2006.
We are currently located on Old Bainbridge Road and are led by our pastor Juan Ocampo. Our pastor planted and has been leading our Hispanic sister church, Cristo Fusion since 2010. Chapel Hill Baptist Church and Cristo Fusion make up a community of faith of diverse cultures, of all ages and walks of life who are looking to strengthen their relationship with Christ through the timeless Word of God.
We are a Baptist congregation affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), composed of over 16 million members who worship in more than 42,000 autonomous churches in the United States.
As Southern Baptists, we share a common bond of basic Biblical beliefs and a commitment to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world. As part of our effort to maximize our efforts individually, we cooperate collectively to evangelize our land and the world with the Gospel. In our state, we are affiliated with the Florida Baptist Convention. Locally, we accomplish this through the Florida Baptist Association.
