Go therefore and make disciples...

Our Vision

The mission of Washington Avenue Baptist Church is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

We set out to accomplish that in 4 ways.


We believe that pray is the starting point for carrying out God's plan for our lives. We seek to depend upon the Lord to lead and direct out steps each day, that we might used to reach others.


Scriptures teaches that Jesus didn't come to be served, but to serve. Our aim is to be like Jesus by being willing to daily put the needs of others first in every aspect of our lives, every day.


We believe that God has given us all a variety of resources that he intends to be used for His kingdom. We aim to invest in others with the resources given to us by God. 


We believe that all of us are to be engaged in equipping those around us to be disciple-makers.
