Our Beginning

Word of Life Baptist Church started in March 2010 as the West African Mission of First Baptist Church, Lithia Springs (FBCLS). The purpose of the Mission was to evangelize and provide a place of discipleship, worship, ministry, fellowship, and spiritual growth for West Africans and people of African descent living in the Cobb, Paulding, and Douglas counties of Georgia. After four years of sponsorship and support which contributed to the growth of the Mission, FBCLS organized the Mission into a full sister church on April 6, 2014 under the name Word of Life Baptist Church (WOLBC).

WOLBC has been incorporated in the State of Georgia as a non-profit organization with a 501 (c) (3) status. The church is affiliated to the West Metro Baptist Association, the Georgia Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as the Ghana Baptist Convention. The church subscribes to the Baptist Faith and Message (2000) of the Southern Baptist Convention.
