Costly discipleship is sacrificing everything to follow Christ. Discipleship at WSBC anchors itself in Scripture and encourages all believers to become mature followers of Christ. We help followers to live out of a pure conscience and sincere faith; equipped and supported for ministry.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
Matthew 22:37
