Woodland’s primary reason for existing is the same as any gospel church that obeys the teaching of Scripture, "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, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
We are an active Church Family.
WBC is a staff led church with supportive deacon ministry and congregationally led ministry teams. We are a cooperating church in the Southern Baptist Convention and actively involved in the Golden Triangle Baptist Association. We strive to minister to all people in our local community through several forms of gospel ministry. We are a moderate size congregation with approximately 70 families regularly involved in ministry.
