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.

Living Off Someone Else’s Promise
Romans 8:31-39 (NIV)
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
