Our IGNITE Vision

The IGNITE Initiative is a three year journey that we will make together so that we can more fully fulfill the vision that God has given to both Western Avenue Baptist Church and to each of us personally as His children.

This IGNITE Initiative is an opportunity for us to take the ministry of Western Avenue Baptist Church to the next level. God is opening doors of ministry opportunities for us that are unprecedented. But to embrace these opportunities, it will require that we each seek and depend on the Lord as never before. We will each need to examine what sacrifices we can make and come together to bring those before the Lord. In order for us to take our church to a new place and make us even better each of us must be ready to IGNITE!

What Is The IGNITE Initiative About?

That we each IGNITE a passion to...

Reach Children

We want to see the kids of our community even more excited to come to our church. We want to see parents even more excited to bring their kids here. We will construct dedicated space, custom designed to invest spiritually in families and children. It is hard to imagine a greater investment than this.

Create Community

We want to invest in redesigning and expanding our main foyer. We will construct this to create an obvious main entrance to our church that is welcoming and makes a great first impression. But even more importantly we want to create a space that eliminates bottlenecks while creating a space where relationships and friendships can be started and can grow.

Live Generously

IGNITE is also an opportunity for each of us to ask God how He would want us to grow in the area of giving and generosity. As we each do this, we will see there is great power in the unity that comes from all of us coming together to do this together.

The IGNITE Goals
