Problem getting text to wrap properly with css

I'm having a problem getting this text to wrap properly. If you take a look here:

http://www.cooltoneamps.com/rcc/

the Welcome text is going off the right edge. I have set up padding but it doesn't seem to effect it.
Here is the css:

#wrap p
{
      vertical-align: top;
      float: left;
      margin-top: 20px;
      margin-left: 35px;
      margin-right:20px;
      color: white;
      height: 225px;
      width: 425px;
      font-size: 120%;
      background-image: url(../img/welcomediv.gif);
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      padding-left: 15px;
      padding-right: 10px;
      padding-top: 10px;
      text-indent: 15px;
      text-align: left;
}

And code:

<div id="wrap">
           <div id="slideshow">          
               <Bewise:FlashControl ID="FlashControl1" runat="server" Height="215px" MovieUrl="~/monoslideshow.swf" Scale="Noborder" Width="350px" WMode="Opaque">
               </Bewise:FlashControl>
           </div>
       
            <p>
            <em>Welcome</em><br /><br /><br />

            </p>
           
           
      </div><!--wrap-->

I would just do it like:
define a css class - start with a dot

.welcome
{
       vertical-align: top;
      float: left;
      margin-top: 20px;
      margin-left: 35px;
      margin-right:20px;
      color: white;
      height: 225px;
      width: 425px;
      font-size: 120%;
      background-image: url(../img/welcomediv.gif);
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      padding-left: 15px;
      padding-right: 10px;
      padding-top: 10px;
      text-indent: 15px;
      text-align: left;
}

and in the aspx file:

..
            <div class="welcome">
            <em>Welcome</em><br /><br /><br />
            Reidsville Christian Church exists to share
            the good news of Jesus with people everywhere,
            to teach and strengthen the believers, to
            minister  to the needs of others, and to be
            a Christian influence in the community.
            </div>

Hope this help

Adding padding will add to the width of the box. Decrease the width of the element to compensate for left and right padding:

width: 400px;
