Our Beliefs & Affiliations 


West Lake Baptist Church affirms the Baptist Faith & Message 2000.


West Lake Baptist Church is a congregationally governed, autonomous, Southern Baptist Church, affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We are affiliated with The Southern Baptists of Texas state convention.  In addition, we are locally aligned with the Dogwood Trails Association and Smith County Association.  The state and local association affiliations help us to partner in spreading the gospel throughout the world.

Our Mission

Our Mission Statement: West Lake Baptist Church exists to magnify God the Father and His son, the Lord Jesus Christ, witness for the Lord Jesus Christ, and grow up people in Christ and do this here and wherever God gives us opportunity.

To fulfill the mission we are committed to:

  • Changed Minds . . .

  • Compassionate Hearts . . .

  • Committed Lives . . .  To live as fully committed, disciples of Jesus Christ (the Great Commitment)

Our History

In 1976 God moved in the heart of several devoted believers to start a church designed to reach people within the West Lake/Lake Palestine area. The first service was held on March 16, 1976 with 56 people in attendance in a "Big Blue Tent" at the current location and was to be known as the West Lake Baptist Mission.  On February 19, 1978, West Lake Baptist Church was officially organized as a church with their own constitution.

Through the years of God’s blessing, and faithfulness of His people - facilities have been established and properties expanded. In 1996 an education building was built, followed by a worship center in 1997.

In 2009 we completed our Youth Education building, which serves as a facility to teach and train the youth 7th - 12th grade, host a college class and additional small group gatherings when needed.

In 2016 we added a new roof to the original structure.

All of the facilities/structures are completely paid for because of the generosity of our members and the Blessing of God.

Through decades of growth and blessing, God has preserved the original vision; to reach the community with the unchanging life transforming truth of Jesus Christ. We remain grateful for a richly blessed past and look forward to the future with great expectation believing that our best days are yet to come.

History is still being written at WLBC.    We invite you to come, be a part of the journey and make history with us as we reach people with the life changing truths of Christ - all for His glory!
