West Point Baptist Church Story By Jake Winfrey Photos Provided by West Point Baptist Church West Point Baptist Church has always been held in high regard by its members. And for good reason. The church has been going strong ever since it was first established and continues to grow to this day. Pastor Steve Brown has held his position since October 2016. His philosophy is “Lead from the outflow of what God is doing in your life.” “It’s starting with the basis that I can do nothing on my own with effectiveness for the kingdom of God,” Brown said. “It’s the outflow of what he’s doing in me that’s effective Christianity.” The congregation consists of around 150 people, and Brown said the church is always seeking new disciples who will, in turn, make disciples. West Point Baptist Church offers both a 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Sunday service. The Wednesday service includes a Bible drill for kids in grades one through six at 6 p.m. followed by adult, student and children ministries at 6:30 p.m. The congregation at West Point Baptist Church holds many events, like the Chili cook-off, to help raise money for missions at home and around the world. 8 | Faith & Family
