Welcome to The faith family of West Point Missionary Baptist Church
Karibu (Welcome in Swahili)! O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good! I am excited God has blessed us to witness another year of God’s grace and mercy. Our witnessing through continued life is God’s sign that God still has work for us to do, as well as God’s continuing to exhibit grace and mercy in our lives. In response to God’s loving kindness and tender mercies, we offer God our sincere worship and uninhibited praise.
I invite you to share in our 2014, life-changing practice: What Does The Lord Require Of You?: Declaring A War on Poverty in 2014 (Micah 6:8; Luke 4:18-19). As a faith family, it is our duty to show the face of Jesus the Christ through caring for those who are least cared for. We are unapologetically declaring a war on educational disparities, hunger, mass incarceration, homelessness, food deserts, etc. The local church must lead the charge to helping change the lives of all people, and you are welcomed to join us in this fight.
Since you’ve thought it not robbery to log on to our site, I also invite you to worship and praise God with us. In an effort to meet a variety of worship needs, we offer two worship services. Our 8:00 a.m. Worship and Word (1st and 3rd Sundays only) is a non-traditional worship service. Our 10:45 a.m. Sunday Morning Glory Worship is a blending of traditional and contemporary worship. In addition, we invite you to join us every Wednesday at 7 p.m. for Wednesday in the Word with yours truly. 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 you as Pastor! Shalom.
Rev. L. Bernard Jakes, D.Min.
