Karibu (Welcome in Swahili)! O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good! I am excited God has led you to visit our virtual church. As you visit our online church, invite you to learn who we are as disciples of Jesus the Christ, as it is our first priority. We strive to make Jesus’ words applicable to our lives, while showing the face of Jesus to everyone we meet. We do this by fighting for the least cared for, while continuing to unapologetically declare a war on educational disparities, hunger, mass incarceration, homelessness, food deserts, etc. Our faith family strongly believes that the local church must lead the charge in helping change the lives of all people, and you are welcomed to join us in this fight.
In an effort to meet a variety of worship needs, we offer two worship services. Our 7:45 a.m. Worship and Word (1st Sundays only) is our 60 minutes non-traditional worship service. Our 10 a.m. Sunday Morning Glory Worship is a blending of traditional and contemporary worship. In addition, we offer Wednesday night classes through our West Point Christian Academy. Classes are offered throughout the year, and registration is recommended. For more information about classes, please contact our church office at 773-538-7590, Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Lastly, if you are without a place to call home, we would love to be your church family of faith, and I would LOVE to serve as your Pastor! To engage virtually, you can worship with us via live stream (on this homepage), as well as Facebook live. Our Facebook page is @thefaithfamilyofwestpointbaptistchurch. I love you.

Proclamation of the Good News
Ephesians 2:8-10 (NRSV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— 9 not the result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
