In 1985 the church was recognized by President Ronald Reagan for its unusual growth and influence.

RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: For 8 years, Dr. Baldwin was the host of a lively, hard-hitting radio talk show called, “Chuck Baldwin Live.” This was broadcast locally for 6 years and then was sydicated nationally for 2 years. This show was highly successful in helping to elect conservatives to local, state and national offices. “Chuck Baldwin Live” was regarded as perhaps the most influential voice in the Florida Panhandle for conservative, constitutional, Christian principles. Chuck’s guest list reads like a “Who’s Who” from both the local and national scene.

MORAL MAJORITY LEADER: From 1980-1984 Dr. Baldwin served as Pensacola Chairman, and then State Chairman of the Florida Moral Majority. Through these efforts many successful rallies and conferences were conducted. (One rally drew nearly 2,000 people during a driving rain storm.) Pro-family legislation was enacted, and Christians were educated as to moral-political information and involvement. Also, thousands of new conservative voters were generated.

AUTHOR: Chuck has authored several books. The first is entitled “Subjects Seldom Spoken On” which contains eleven sermons not normally addressed. The second, “This Is The Life,” is a verse-by-verse exposition of the Epistles of John. Numerous theological booklets have also been written by Dr. Baldwin, including the popular, “Let’s Look at Legalism.”Through his radio program Dr. Baldwin has edited and produced “The Freedom Documents.”

During the campaign, and afterward, Mr. Baldwin travelled more than 100,000 miles and visited more than 40 states to promote his message of liberty and constitutional government. On Election Day, November 4, Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle received more than 200,000 votes, which is a record for any Constitution Party Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket.
