Special Needs

Just As I Am

The Disability Ministry of Western Avenue Baptist Church

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Cor 12:27
We believe that God has created all people in His image for His purposes. God makes no mistakes and He has made everyone just the way He wanted. Therefore, we seek to minister to those individuals and families that have been impacted by a disability.

Our Goals

Our goals are to educate, inform and expand.


First and foremost, our goal is to educate those affected by a disability about the love of Jesus Christ. 


We want to raise awareness within our church body about the needs and challenges faced by families affected by disability, and to recognize that we are all God’s children, uniquely created by Him.


We also seek to expand the Kingdom of God by reaching out within our community to those families affected by a disability, offering a safe and loving environment where they may come and experience the love of Christ through the hands of the church body.
