Northwest Baptist Church is made up of people just like you. We are a people who are not perfect but worship a God who is. We gather together to celebrate God and to make Him known to the world. We are people who have been radically changed by the gospel. We feel that the best way to live this new life is together and centered on the gospel.
Our musical style is blended. You can expect to hear a variety of music from hymns, modern worship songs to choir arrangements. We encourage you to come however you feel comfortable. Our dress code is also blended. So If that is wearing jeans and a t-shirt then great, if that’s wearing a suit and tie then that is great too. Our goal is to remember that what matters is our hearts and being genuine. We also place a high emphasis on biblical teaching. Our pastor preaches the truth of God's word with application for everyday living. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice and we make it a priority.
Many questions get asked by visitors to our church, those new in town, and friends and neighbors of our members. Here’s a list of questions that may help you get to know NWBC better.
What denomination is NWBC a part of?
NWBC cooperates as a Southern Baptist church who cooperates with the Manatee Baptist Association and the Florida Baptist Convention (FBC). For more information on Southern Baptists please visit www.sbc.net.
What time is your Sunday worship service?
Our worship service is at 10:45 A.M. every Sunday.
What do you offer for babies and toddlers?
Nursery care is provided for both infants and toddlers (to age 3) during our worship service each week.
Who goes to your church?
We have quite a diverse group of people at NWBC. Our congregation spans all ages. You’ll find just about every type of person here – married, single, divorced, widowed – professionals, workers, retired – life-long Bradenton residents and those who have just recently moved to the area. But even more important than the kind of people who go here is the kind of people who are welcome here – everyone!
Do you have to dress up to attend your worship service?
No! Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us at NWBC. Some do wear their “Sunday best” but you’re also likely to find others in slacks and a casual shirt, or even jeans. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.
What kind of things do you do in your worship service?
We strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere at NWBC. To begin, we share announcements and church news; we sing together and listen to our choir perform beautiful music; we read the Bible and preach through it.
What kind of growth opportunities do you offer?
Adults have a Sunday School class to join each week at 9:30 a.m. NWBC also offers a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship outside of Sunday morning through Men’s Fellowship & Ladies Fellowships & Small Groups that meet on weekdays and evenings.
