1. Missions

Mathew 28:19-20 (The Great Commission) says: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Members of WHBC have traveled to different areas of our world to spread the good news about our Savior Jesus Christ. Romania has been a destination for outreach and ministry over the years. Another trip may be planned for next year (2016). If interested, please click here: Romania Application Form 2014 to access the application to possibly go on the mission.

Please view the Southern Baptist Convention missions site for more information.

2. Children’s Ministry.

Children’s Mission Statement
-Train a Child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

The mission of children’s ministries at WHBC is to help all children develop a true understanding and love for Jesus and to begin to see HIS purpose for their lives. The ultimate goals are to raise a generation of children; who know God, who understand the importance of families, and who understand the great commission and seek to fulfill it with their lives for the glory of God.

Mission Friends

The church missions organization of WMU for preschoolers ages birth through kindergarten. The primary objective of Mission Friends is to provide a strong foundation for preschoolers in a Christian and missions lifestyle. Mission Friends provides developmentally appropriate missions learning experiences to help preschoolers move from a self-centered focus to a focus on others, to become aware that not everyone knows about God’s love, and to understand ways they can help others know about this good news. Visit the official Mission Friends website.

RAs

A Royal Ambassador (RA) is a boy in grades 1-6 committed to living out the RA Pledge. This pledge is part of personal and chapter (group of RAs) accountability. The RA Motto, “We are Ambassadors for Christ,” not only gives the organization its name, but also gives the boys and leaders a lifestyle goal. This motto is taken from Scripture, specifically 2 Corinthians 5:20. Visit the official RA website.

GAs

Girls in Action is a missions organization for girls in grades 1-6. We learn what missionaries do, pray for missionaries and their work, save and give money to help tell other people about Jesus, learn about people around the world, and have fun with friends. Learn more at the official GA Website.
