Our Ministries

The mission of Bible Baptist Church is a reflection of the “Great Commission” of the Lord Jesus Christ that has been incumbent upon every Bible-believing Baptist Church since the days of Christ and the apostles until the present.

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” — Matthew 28:18-20.

This commandment may be summarized under three heads:

  • Preaching the Gospel to every creature — Mark 16:15.
  • Baptizing those who believe on Jesus Christ — Acts 2:41.
  • Teaching those added to the church through salvation, then baptism — Acts 2:42.

With this in mind, all of our Church’s ministries are focused on fulfilling at least one aspect of the Commission. What follows is a categorized listing of the various ministries of Bible Baptist Church (in addition to the regular preaching meetings):

  • Military Ministry
    Saturday afternoon fellowship and Bible Study, a monthly meal provided after the morning service, and personal visitation to single members of the military stationed at NAS Whidbey Island.
