We offer a “Discover WRBC” lunch several times though out the year. If you are new to Westport Road Baptist Church and want to know about next steps we invite you to join us.
There are lots of misconceptions and beliefs that are floating through our culture today. You can attend a variety of churches and hear a variety of “takes” on what the Bible says. At WRBC, we as a congregation, are built on the foundation of the Bible, God’s Word.
Two simple principles drive our church:
L O V I N G G O D A N D L O V I N G P E O P L E .
We strive to be disciples of Jesus through this.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
| Matthew 22:36 – 40 |
What should I expect?
What should I wear?
Please know that we are much more interested in you encountering Christ at WRBC than we are with whether you are wearing jeans and a t-shirt or a shirt and a tie. In general though, you would likely see people wearing jeans in our contemporary service and encounter others dressing up more during our traditional service. But again, you can wear either attire to either service because YOU are more important to us than what you are wearing.
How long does worship last?
Sunday morning worship usually lasts less than 1 hour and 15 minutes. The 9:30 a.m. service usually ends between 10:30 and 10:40 a.m. and the 11:00 a.m. service usually ends at noon.
Is there anything for my kids?
Absolutely! There are usually separate activities for children and teens occurring at the same time there are services for adults. For example, on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings there are services and Bible Studies for adults, as well as childcare for infants and activities for children and teens.
What’s the difference between the two services?
The differences between the two worship services are primarily the style of music in each. The music in our contemporary worship is a current, band-led mix. Our traditional service is defined by timeless hymns supported primarily by the organ and piano.
How do I find my way around?
When you walk into our building on Sunday morning, you will be greeted at the door by individuals ready to make your visit a great one. They will direct you to an area called “Guest Services”. A volunteer at this area can help you locate a class for you and your family as well as point you to the worship area for one of our two worship times. Volunteers will assist you to find the classrooms if you’d like. Many of your questions can be answered by these volunteers or at our Information Center found between the Sanctuary doors.
Does your church provide counseling?
Yes. Our church provides pastoral counseling for anyone. We also have several support groups available to support those dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one or divorce.
