What To Expect

We Welcome You

On behalf of the staff and congregation it is my privilege to welcome you to Waldo Baptist church. We consider worship to be the center of our life together and are delighted you chose to visit us today online!  

When you come into Waldo Baptist Church, a smiling, friendly face will welcome you. Whether you are looking for a Sunday school class, Children’s Church, or are a first time visitor to our regular worship services, a greeter will be available to assist.

Our congregation is made up of families of all ages who share together in a unique blend of Christian Service. “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”  Galatians 6:2,10.

Waldo Baptist Church is a very caring congregation that strongly believes in reaching out beyond themselves to spread and apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here you will find a warm welcome and ample opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus and His Church.

Pastor Trad York.
