---The History of West Hyattsville Baptist Church

 

On May 14, 1950, West Hyattsville Baptist Church was begun by the Mission Committee of the First Baptist Church of Mt. Rainer, in the form of a Sunday School which met at a residence at 5823 33rd Avenue in Hyattsville, Maryland.  The Sunday School continued for several months until the group was no longer able to assemble at the residence; however, many of the people continued to attend Sunday School at the Mt. Ranier Church.

 On March 11, 1951, a building was rented at Ager and Jamestown Roads and a new Mission was begun, sponsored by the First Baptist Church of Mt. Rainer.  At that time, Dr. Paul L. Bard, Missionary of the Southern District Baptist Association was placed in charge of the Mission.  By October 1951, the average Sunday school attendance was at 46 and the Worship Service averaged 27 attendees.

 

 

 

---Purpose

Unified by the grace of God in Christian experience, the members of West Hyattsville Baptist Church recognize and receive the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and agree to accept it as our only rule of faith and practice. We declare our adherence to the doctrines and teachings of the New Testament, and believe our mission is:

 

To Proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ boldly, faithfully, and broadly;

To Worship in ways that enlivens, encourage and unite a diverse community;

To Practice sincere and compassionate hospitality;

To Nurture our members, to serve our community; and,

To Equip believers for ministry through education and fellowship.

 

---Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE in God, Creator and sustainer of all who is manifested in His Son, Jesus Christ, who continually reaches out to humanity to draw us to Him, who sends us the gift of the Holy Spirit to lead, teach, comfort, inspire, and who works in and through us to accomplish His will in His world.
 
WE BELIEVE the Bible is God’s revealed, inspired, preserved, imparted, and transforming conclusive Word to us and is always relevant.
 
WE BELIEVE the Church is God’s people doing God’s work in the world.
 
WE BELIEVE that the primary responsibility of the Church is to draw people to God in order that their lives may be transformed, enriched and empowered.
 
Finally, WE BELIEVE that the Church exists to extend God’s love and compassion to the community and to the world.
