image003-1_FeatureWhat a joy it is to introduce you to our church! You will discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you and I can have a life-changing experience with God through relationship with His son, Jesus Christ.

At the Myrtle Baptist Church of West Newton, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. What people usually notice first about us is the loving nature of our ministry. Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in a relevant and practical way.

Together, we are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there is relevant preaching and teaching, heart-felt praise and worship, constant prayer, and compassionate care for all God’s children. In short, we would like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, and multiple lives at a time.

So, whether you are a spiritual seeker who is just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you are important to us.

We look forward to growing with you in Bible study on Wednesdays and worshipping with you on Sundays!

In Christ,
Reverend Brandon Thomas Crowley, MDiv, STM
Senior Pastor/Servant/Teacher
