Bible Baptist Church
Bible Baptist Church of Bartow, Florida is a young church, started on May 26, 2013. Pastor Bryan Gentry is a graduate and former staff member of Landmark Baptist College in Haines City, Florida. After planting Solid Rock Baptist Church (www.srbcmisouri.com) in Parkville, Missouri in September 2009, and turning it over to Pastor John Magas in 2013, Pastor and Mrs. Gentry returned to Polk County, FL where they have lived all their lives to start Bible Baptist Church. They have been sent out by Dr. Mickey Carter and Landmark Baptist Church in Haines City, FL. In January 2018, with the help of other churches and individuals, BBC purchased the JW Kingdom Hall in Bartow, which turned the only Kingdom Hall in Bartow into the only Independent Baptist Church in Bartow.
