OUR MISSION
The mission of Faith Baptist Church of Wauseon, Ohio can be summarized with three W's - Witness, Worship, and Work.  

The first part of our church's mission is to be a Witness.  We are commissioned to preach the gospel to all nations and peoples.

Matthew 28:18-20, 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.

Mark 16:15, And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Our witness concerning the gospel of Jesus Christ is very broad.  It is not only the message of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection for sinners, but of the "Doctrine of Christ" in its entirety.  We testify to God's holiness to man's sinfulness; God's sending of his son to man's receiving him as Lord and Savior; God's law all the way to man's repentance; the Lord's finished work on Calvary all the way to man's faith in that work for justification.

To summarize our witness we would say, "All people are sinners and fall short of God's holiness and demands.  Consequently all will die and go into eternal punishment unless they are saved.  The only way salvation is secured is through repentance of sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ."  (Romans 3:23, 6:23, John 3:3, Acts 16:30-31, John 6:40)

The second part of our mission is Worship.  This is just as important as the first part of our mission in that it is by God's appointing that there be a place where he would put his name and where his people would come to worship him.

Ephesians 3:20-21, Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen.

Ephesians 5:25-27, Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing;  but that it should be holy and without blemish.

God has always had a special place where he would be worshipped.  In the Old Testament we see altars, the Tabernacle, and the Temple.  In this present age we find the Lord's New Testament Baptist Church.  Faith Baptist Church meets regularly to worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23-24).  We sing the great old Hymns, pray, praise, give thanks, and hear God's Holy Word preached.

The third (and equally important) function Faith Baptist Church carries out is found in the word, Work.  The work of a Baptist church is many fold.  We labor in guarding and administering the ordinance of Baptism - Baptizing only the saved by immersion under the authority of our church and into membership of our church.

Matthew 28:19, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

We labor in teaching, training, and discipling the saved in their walk with Christ.  This is plainly seen in the last part of the church's commission.

Matthew 28:20, 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.

We labor in the contending for the faith once delivered.  We have a responsibility to defend and preserve the system of doctrine that Christ gave to his first church and that our forefathers labored to preserve through all these ages since.  We must, like them, stand for the truth Christ gave us - at all costs.

Jude 3, Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

II Timothy 3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

We labor in preserving this church a lighthouse in this community and world.  We labor to preserve our duty to each other in loving, caring, and helping one another.  We labor to preserve the blessing of fellowship we have as a New Testament Baptist church.  We labor to be a help to our Brethren that are in the world.  We labor to be a help to our Sister churches that are in this world.  We labor for all those things most precious and eternal.  We labor because our Lord has called us to labor in his vineyard and because he is worthy of all glory (Colossians 1:18).  We labor because nothing worth having comes easily!
