Warrenton Bible Fellowship (WBF) strives to teach the Bible, equip believers, and proclaim the gospel; all for the glory of God. Our current charge is to strengthen the body of Christ to do the work of expanding the kingdom of God.
WBF has a long history in Warrenton. Having started as a home Bible study in 1979, the church subsequently met in a variety of locations and steadily grew. The current building, which is in the heart of Old Town Warrenton, was purchased in 1991. The building was originally erected in 1912 and served as a Methodist church until 1985. WBF has grown from a small church in a relatively rural area, into an increasingly diverse congregation in a bustling commuter community. As always, WBF remains dedicated to the preaching of God's Word and the authority of the Scriptures, and seeks to reach our neighboring communities with the Gospel (Mark 16:15).
At WBF, we place the highest value on the Word of God and its vital role in our daily lives. You’ll hear this value expressed in our worship music and sermons. We practice a straightforward approach to preaching the Word - building line upon line, precept upon precept, with all of it taken in context, with an emphasis on how the Bible fits together to reveal God’s plan to redeem mankind through His Son, Jesus Christ. Furthermore, we desire to encounter and relish all of the rich, astounding glory of the Scriptures, while allowing the absolute truth of God’s Word to challenge us and change our hearts so that God will pour through us into the community around us.
In 2003, WBF joined the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) and subsequently adopted the EFCA's statement of faith. WBF is an elder-led church. Our elders lead our congregation spiritually through prayer, studying biblical doctrines, teaching and establishing the vision of the church. As a community of Christ-followers, we seek to bring glory to God and fulfill our part in Christ’s great commission (Matt 28:19-20, Acts 1:8). To more effectivly take the gospel out into the community, WBF subsequently joined a group of like minded churches to form the Warrenton Gospel Partnership.
