FROM THE PASTOR
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.” Psalm 19:1-4
Trusting God is easy when the results don’t really matter. Like when we are praying for a parking spot. But do we trust him when the results really matter to us? Do we dare trust him with our dreams? Do we dare suit up and show up for our day, put in the work, and let God decide the results? Especially when life is disappointing—for example, when we lose our job or are unable to realize a dream—it’s easy to feel like he’s forgotten us. But what if we shifted our thinking? Perhaps God is doing us a favour: removing a detour or distraction from whatever is his best for us. (quote from Melissa d’Arabian)
Do we trust Jesus with the person we are, with all of the things we don’t like about ourselves. If God has created us uniquely and for a purpose, then can we trust God that he will lead you into the right place to serve him. When we compare ourselves with others, it usually means we don’t like some aspect of who we are. Don’t compare because it robs us of the joy we can experience when we choose to trust God with who we have been created to be.
You may be wondering about yourself: Is just being me enough for God? Yes. Yes, it is. We are enough today, with our flaws, with our baggage, with our messes, and with the bodies, houses, bank accounts, careers, and lives we have today, right this second. We are enough right now.
Enjoy your uniqueness and trust God with your identity and future.

Welcome to the Warners Bay Baptist Church website. We, the church, are glad you have taken the time to have a look at the web site and would like to invite you along to one of our church services.
We are a Baptist church that has about 70-110 people attend on a Sunday morning. Our congregation has a mixture of young families, middle aged people and older people.
Our services are contemporary in style with a band leading the music portion of our worship service. Within our worship services we also have prayer, Bible readings and someone talking about how the Bible relates to us in our world today. Our services are structured and the people are relaxed and engaged in what is happening.
