Welcome is what we desire everyone to feel who comes to Idlewild Baptist Church. In (Mark 11:17)
Jesus said "Is it not written: 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations?'" We
want to welcome people to come and encounter a loving God who desires to have a relationship with
them. Here in a loving environment a person can come and find out about how the Bible can be
relevant to them and their life. Our worship is a vital time in the life of our church as we
joyfully praise the Lord and seek to hear Him speak.
We want to welcome people to come be a part of the Idlewild family. In our family we seek to help
our people grow in their knowledge of the Bible and how it applies to their lives. This growth
process leads the individual and church family to know the purposes and plans that God has for us.
As people come to know God's purposes and plans for their life then they are welcomed to become
involved in doing ministry. Our ministries are done in our church, our community and around the
world as we seek to be great commission Christians.
