About Us


On behalf of the congregation of Word of Life Baptist church, we welcome you to our web pages. We are delighted to share with you some information about us and hope that you find it helpful.

We are an independent Baptist church located in Pottsville, PA whose goal is to glorify God and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. This is primarily done by living out God’s Word in our lives; it is what shapes our faith and practice. We recognize that it is only through the Word of God that people are saved, that they grown in grace and the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and that they are equipped to do the work of Christian ministry. Therefore, it is the Scriptures that are consistently taught in our weekly services.

Our favorite doctrines are what are referred to as the “doctrines of grace.” Hence our motto: “Rejoicing in Sovereign Grace!”  We believe that God, our creator, is sovereign in all things including our salvation. He chose us before the foundation of the world to be conformed to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ (Rom 8:29). And if what He starts he finishes (Phil 1:6) then nothing will be able to separate us from His love (Rom 8:38-39).

You will find our people friendly and joyful. Our fellowship is one of strong Christian love. We love to sing songs and hymns that minister to our hearts and minds. Our [Sunday School] teachers have a love for God’s Word and a passion to present its truths to children. Our service times are 9:30 Sunday School and 10:45 Worship service. We would love to have you and your family visit us this Sunday. As a part of our mission, we would love to be of help to you. For that matter, we would love for you to be of help to us, as we serve God with a Christ-centered focus.

Check out our weekly church bulletin or calendar to see what’s going on.

Once again, thank you for dropping by! Perhaps one day we will in the near future meet you in person. Feel free to contact us directly.
