“Therefore lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left.” – II Kings 19:4

The mission of CWA of Florida:

is to find the remnant of believers. We want to recognize women and like-minded men who want to make a difference. We are in a spiritual battle that requires action, first through prayer, encouragement, creating new chapters and the tools to educate and promote Biblical Values.

“We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits, perfect our government, insure domestic tranquility, maintain public order, and guarantee equal civil and political rights to all, do ordain and establish this constitution.” – Preamble to the Florida Constitution 1845
