The friendly Bible-teaching independent Baptist church in Citrus Springs, FL 34434

Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Edson [Ted] Lawrence.

My wife, Diane, and I have been in the ministry for 35 years. I'm a graduate of Baptist Bible College, PA [1976-1980]. Before coming to Grace Baptist Church we served two church congregations: First Baptist Church, Angelica NY [1982-1992] and West Smyrna Baptist Church, Smyrna NY [1992-2012].  We have four children Stephen [wife Amber; grandson Simeon; granddaughters Margo and Ruby], John [wife Shannon; grandson Wyatt], Peter [wife Kristin; grandsons Oakley and Rowan] and Abigail [teaching pre-school in Ohio].

I was saved as a boy at Glen Baptist Church, Watkins Glen NY during Vacation Bible School. My wife, Diane, came to know the Lord as her savior during her teen years through the ministry of Ames Baptist Church, Ames NY.

We are happy that God has called us to serve Him here at Grace Baptist Church. Our church is a friendly, caring congregation of dedicated followers of Christ.

I hope that you will come and see what God is doing here at Grace Baptist Church.


2 Peter 3:18 "But grow in the grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen."


Come Grow with Us!
