Our vision is the heartbeat of who we are at Word Baptist. Our vision is simply to be a community of transformed people growing in love for God and love for our neighbors.





Word Baptist Church exists by the grace of God, to bring glory to and LOVE GOD. This Church brings glory to God by loving and obeying His commands, worshiping the Lord in unity according to the teachings of the Holy Bible and prayer, administering the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, sustaining doctrines and practicing the precepts and examples of the church of our Lord Jesus Christ as set forth in the New Testament and proclaiming the Gospel of God’s salvation by personal faith in Jesus Christ. Here at Word Baptist Church we aim to EQUIP THE CHURCH by bringing people into an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and preparing and motivating believers for service in the church and community. We also aim to IMPACT THE WORLD by providing for physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, in the name of Jesus Christ.
