THE PURPOSE OF WAYSIDE BIBLE BAPIST CHURCH
To Make Disciples
The Purpose of Wayside Bible Baptist Church is to glorify God in the following ways:
* Evangelizing our community and the rest of the world through faithfully proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8)
Edifying, bringing believers to spiritual maturity by effectively ministering the Word of God to other in the Body of Christ (Col 1:28)
Educating the body of Christ with ministries designed to reach different ages. (I Peter 4:10)
Providing a place of worship where all who desire may praise the Lord and grow spiritually (Col 1:18)
We here are Wayside are committed to:
Praising. The Scriptures teach that we are to bring God glory in all that we do. Therefore, praising Him is at the center of all we do, every time we gather together. Exalting our Lord through worship music, sacrificial giving, and faithful preaching is our highest expression of thanks and love towards the One who saves us.
Preaching. The focus of each worship service, Sunday School Class, and Bible study is the proclamation of God’s matchless Word. It alone is the soul truth concerning the character of God, the nature of man, the way to salvation and the hope of heaven. Declaring the truth of God’s Word is our highest priority here at Wayside.
Practicing. Scriptures teach that “if any man be in Christ he is a new creation old things are passed away, behold all things have become new” II Cor 5:17 As we grow in our understanding and knowledge of Jesus Christ our lives will reflect a change. God’s Word through the working of the Holy Spirit will begin to conform us to the image of Jesus, God’s Son. What the world needs to see now is born again believers serving one another and the world around them.
