In the past, we have alerted you to the disturbing reality that First Baptist Church Orlando, a Southern Baptist megachurch located in Orlando, Florida, has openly been baptizing practicing homosexuals. Shockingly, there has been a complete lack of accountability from the Southern Baptist Convention regarding these egregious actions to this day.
As early as 2016, The Dissenter shed light on First Baptist Church Orlando’s surrender to the ideologies of the gay movement, exposing how the church not only welcomed a group of homosexuals onto their pulpit following the Pulse Nightclub shooting but also allowed another pastor to declare that the “LGBTQ community” was the “chief cornerstone” of Christianity.
However, the situation escalated further in 2021. The associate pastor, Danny de Armas who also held the position of chair at the North American Mission Board (NAMB), shamelessly boasted from the stage about how their Southern Baptist church fully embraced homosexuals, transgender individuals, pro-abortion activists, and every other form of God-hater, granting them positions of service within the church.
Just one week later, the lead pastor, David Uth, doubled down and declared that not only would they continue down this path, but they were even partnering with NAMB to establish additional churches based on the same unscriptural ecclesiology.
Somehow, though, this church remains in good standing not only with the national Southern Baptist Convention but also with the Florida State Baptist Convention. Just over a week ago, Uth appeared on a panel discussion at the Florida convention where he lectured Southern Baptists on how churches should handle sexual immorality. During that discussion, he boasted about how his church opened the stage up to the LGBT community, gave them the microphone, and allowed them to say things that he now says his church doesn’t agree with. Yet, he claims that by doing so, it has opened the door to more relationships.

Among those relationships are a handful of practicing homosexuals who attend, worship, serve, and were baptized as members in good standing at his church. Thanks to the diligent research of The DISNTR along with Justin Peters and Casey Butner, we have uncovered irrefutable evidence of the church’s affirmation of homosexuality at the Florida megachurch, First Baptist Orlando. In the image below, one of the open, married-to-another-man homosexuals at David Uth’s church is posing as a volunteer in the church’s children’s ministry.
Uth says that his church doesn’t agree with their views on homosexuality, yet his church has baptized these people anyway. Below is a picture of the man above, during his “wedding” to his homosexual partner:
And below again is a picture of this same guy being baptized by Danny DeArmas, the associate lead pastor and a former VP of the SBC’s North American Missions Board, baptizing him.
And not only is this openly, practicing, married-to-another-man homosexual baptized at First Baptist Church Orlando, but he is also allowed to baptize other people:
Does this look like David Uth, the lead pastor of this church, “doesn’t agree” with these homosexuals who attend his church? Nope, it doesn’t look like it. In fact, it looks like they are fully affirmed, coddled, and allowed to live in unrepentant sin with no discipline, no call to repentance and faith, and no accountability at all. At the very least, David Uth should have been removed from the pastorate by his church. But the Florida State Baptist Convention, instead of giving David Uth a platform to spread his filthy false doctrine, should have voted his church out of the convention altogether. But this is the byproduct of weak, effeminate men masquerading as church leaders. David Uth is a liar!
