Welcome to The Church in the Wildwood.  We count it a privilege to fellowship with our Christian family.  If you do not have a church home, we invite you to consider Wildwood Baptist.  Your Christian life can become richer and more fulfilling if you regularly attend church.

Wildwood has a rich history of ministry in our community and we continue to commit ourselves to three primary objectives:

– Exalting and worshiping Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior

– Preaching and teaching the Bible as the very Word of God

– Sharing true Christian love with all people

We would be blessed to have you visit Wildwood Baptist and hope to see you here soon!


Sincerely in Christ,

Pastor David Sayne
