Our Mission

Our Purpose

These are uncertain times, filled with rapid changes that can shake our future and our faith. If you have ever longed for a simpler time when there was hope in something greater, come join us at Ward's Grove Baptist Church. Here we look past today's bad news, return to simple values and work toward a brighter future that can be found in a personal relationship with God's Son, Jesus Christ.
