These next steps will help you grow spiritually
and learn to live the way God intended.



If you've made a commitment to Christ, it's time to take the next step and make your decision known. Baptism is the best way to express your faith and reflect your life change. Find out more about baptism through Starting Point, register online or contact one of our pastors.

Starting Point (Membership Class)

Our membership class will give you a sneak peek into the basic beliefs and practices of Word Baptist, equip you with the essentials of the Christian faith, and show you opportunities where you can get involved. This is your first step in getting connected with Word Baptist and a prerequisite to becoming a member. This class usually lasts about an hour and a half.


Bible Intake

Our goal is that everyone would read the Bible for themselves and discover the truth and beauty of God’s Word.

Find a Life Group

Life was not meant to be lived alone. Gather weekly with people from your neighborhood to build a community and impact it for the better. At Word Baptist, Life Groups are vital to our church. They provide a sense of connection and security as we all tackle life together. Our Life Groups draw out the relevance of Biblical principles discussed in the weekend services.


Serving others is one of the most effective ways to live out your faith. In a world focused on personal gain, there is perhaps no greater way to show others what a life devoted to Christ is about. Sign up today and experience first-hand the impact our volunteer teams have on our local, national and international ministry.


Join the family by attending one of our services


For Christians, tithing (a word meaning ‘tenth’) is the starting point. Tithing is giving the first 10% of our income back to the local church. If you call Word Baptist your home, we encourage you to give generously, knowing that your money is being used to support the mission of Jesus Christ – both here in the Jonesboro - and around the world.


As Christians, we are called to share our story so that others might know the saving grace of Christ. We each have a story and we want to help you tell yours. Please share with us how God has changed your life. Your story just might be the catalyst that will lead someone else to Christ.

Go on a Mission Trip

We are called to go into all the world and preach the gospel. God’s heart has always been for every person from every nation and every language to be His child. Sadly, there are still over 3 billion people in the world who do not have clear access to the gospel. We have the message of life, love, hope and truth, which was never meant to be kept to ourselves. Join us as we go to share this “good news” with the world.
