Philosophy

The basic philosophy of ministry at Winfild Bible Chapel is three-fold:

UPWARD – In praise honor and glory to our awesome God

INWARD – for the building up of the body and the edification of its individual members toward the goal of reaching some measure of the image of Jesus Christ

OUTWARD – to share the good News of the Gospel of Christ with those living in a dark world, alienated from God.

Mission

Our mission as a church is that every activity conducted in the name of Jesus Christ at Winfield Bible Chapel will have as its expressed purpose one of the three specific goals stated in our philosophy.

Thus the church becomes a training area to equip its members to effectively share their faith.  Therefore, when the body assembles together, there is a need that its members to built p, encouraged, exhorted, warned, and sent out to serve.

Consequently, it is not solely the pastor’s responsibility to evangelize the community, but each individual member is to exercise the gifts that God has granted to him for use in the increased growth of  not only the church as a whole, but the local body in particular.
