Next Steps

    At every stage of our spiritual journey, Jesus invites us to take a next step with Him.  Here at WSBC, these are next the next steps we encourage you to take.

    I'm Curious

    If you are interested in learning more about our community of faith, we recommend the following ways to get to know us and encounter Jesus:

         Have coffee with a pastor.  Grab one of our pastors after service on Sunday, note on your 
         connect card that you are interested, or simply shoot an email to the office to set up an
         informal time of conversation with Pastor Kelly or Pastor Greg.

         Participate in worship.  Join our community on Sunday mornings for a season.  You will
         learn much about who we are and, more importantly, who our God is!

    I'm Deciding

    If you are ready to make the decision to follow Jesus with your whole life and/or to covenant together as a member of our church community, we recommend the following:

         Be baptized.  Baptism is both a profoundly public profession of your decision to surrender to
         Jesus and a deeply personal symbol of your new, resurrected life in Jesus.  If you are ready to  
         enter the waters, connect with one of our pastors directly or mark your connect card on

         Take the Discovery Course.  Offered quarterly, our new member course provides an
         overview of what it means to covenant together with the WSBC body.  The class will consider
         what it means to be an American Baptist, our vision and beliefs, your spiritual gifts, and your
         own purpose at WSBC.

    I'm Growing

    If you are ready to walk intentionally with Jesus, going deeper with God and further in His Kingdom work in this world, then we recommend the following:

         Connect with a community group.  We offer several opportunities for people of all ages to 
         engage God's word, pray, and grow in the Kingdom together.  Whether a Sunday morning or
         midweek group fits the rhythm of your life best,  connecting intentionally with other believers
         is vital. Email to learn about our current community group offerings.

         Serve.  God placed you at WSBC on purpose for His purpose.  Check out our ministry teams
         and join one that most matches your gifts and passions.
