Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Encouraging Word Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Encouraging Word members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church after worship to preparing the church bulletins.

Mission Outreach

 Encouraging Word Baptist Church is thrilled to be part of spreading of God’s kingdom around the world.  We are active in supporting missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Through the Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program, we help support over 10,000 missionaries at home and abroad. In 2012, 2014 and 2015, a team from our church traveled to West Virginia to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. In the past, many of our members have been on the mission field in Korea and Honduras. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.


God-honoring worship is something we strive for at Encouraging Word. Our music has rich content as we sing songs that reflect deep biblical and theological truths.  We seek to provide quality worship music appealing to all ages to bring us closer to God.  We often sing songs that are very new and older hymns/songs that have great staying power and have been sung for generations.  We also seek to provide authenticity in our worship services that brings true worship and not just going through the motions.

Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play instruments in the worship team, some are vocalists and others are involved in the choir. Our worship volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Encouraging Word Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  Our sanctuary choir meets for rehearsal from 7:15-8:15 pm on Wednesday evenings.

We are a young church and our use of media to spread the gospel is growing. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Encouraging Word Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday we share praises and prayer request in our Life Groups. We pray for our families, health issues, praises for what God has done in our lives and anything else God lays on our hearts. If you have a prayer request, we would be honored to pray for you. Contact us via email at encouragingwordbaptist@gmail.com or call our office at (828) 454-5933.

Children’s Worship

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Encouraging Word Baptist Church holds a children’s worship service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers provide a safe time for kids to worship through games, videos, and object lessons.
