From The Pastor's Desk

From the Pastor's Desk:

In the Kingdom of God, opportunity and challenge often come together. We are in a challenging season with the Coronavirus. But we have an opportunity as well, because people are more aware of how fragile and uncertain life is. With God’s help, we advance the Gospel together in this season of great need.

With this in mind, I would like to encourage everyone to remain faithful as we endure the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic. I would like to remind everyone and share with everyone, the ministry of Jesus to the centurion in Matthew 8;8. With remarkable unselfishness as well as dynamic faith, he declined the Lord’s offer to come to his home. "Lord," he said, "I am not worthy...Speak the word only."

The centurion was used to obeying and to being obeyed; he had authority. The Lord also had authority. There was no need for Him to come in person. All He needed to do was speak the word of authority and the servant’s sickness would be banished. Jesus "marvelled" at the centurion’s response. In the Gospels there are only two things at which Jesus "marvelled": this man’s faith and the unbelief of His own people (Mark 6:6). The Lord admired the centurion’s faith, was amazed at the intelligence of it, and commented on it right away.

So, let's move forward. God is with us during every step of the way.

Praise to the Almighty God.

Welcome to Western Avenue Baptist Church. As you browse our webpage, I sincerely

hope that you will see the attempt to present our church as a place of worship, where

all are welcome, and a place where the love and compassion of Christ are placed

uppermost in our hearts. As members of a contemporary society marked by a

postmodern philosophy, the goal of Western Avenue Baptist Church is to act justly,

love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).


Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to the opportunity to praise and

worship God together.

Dr. Wilmer Cooper, Ed. D.
