I'm New


We are so glad that you have taken the time to visit our site and hope that we get a chance to meet you in person.  Whether you are new to the area or new to church in general we are here to help you get connected.  Below is some basic information to get you started.

What to Expect

West Bradenton Baptist Church exists to inspire people of every generation to pursue Jesus Christ.  Our 3 services are designed to reflect the many expressions of worship that our church values.  Although the music style and atmosphere is unique to each service, the teaching and primary elements stay the same.  Our goal is to celebrate our diversity in worship while always focusing on the one true God.  Regardless of which service you attend you can expect to be greeted warmly and immediately welcomed into the WBBC family.

For more detailed information click on the links to the right of this page. Take some time to learn about our beliefs and our history on the ABOUT US page link to the right. You can find detailed descriptions of all ministries at WBBC by visiting the ADULTS, KIDS and YOUTH sections of the website.

Adult Life Groups

Our Adult Life Groups exist to glorify God by allowing members to live the Christian life with each other. We do this by joining together to study Scripture, develop relationships, and serve within our church and community. All Life Groups meet on campus at both 9:30 and 11:00 on Sunday mornings.

So whether you are brand-new, or just haven’t been able to join a Life Group yet, we would love to get you plugged into one that works for you. If you have any questions or would like assistance in finding a group that is right for you please visit our Welcome Center or send an email to tim@gowestbradenton.org.
