Our Mission Statement

The purpose of Astoria Baptist Church is to be a community of believers committed to becoming and

producing disciples for Jesus Christ in Astoria and beyond. 

 

Our Vision Statement

The central objective of the Ministry is to “Build People of Prayer, Power, Praise, Purpose and Prosperity.” 

This mandate is being fulfilled by teaching the reality of the gospel in a simplistic fashion, and as a result we are learning how to apply it to our everyday living. Our goal is to teach God’s Holy Word in an uncompromising fashion so that purposes can be revealed and destinies fulfilled. God gave a vision to build a distinctively different church in this city, where people would be taught and given an example of holiness, excellence, character, and integrity.This born-again and Spirit filled church is to have an emphasis on building men and women with a God-conscience so that they function as individuals, husbands, wives and parents in a manner that glorifies God and impacts this generation. Our aim is to reach the hurting and the lost with message of faith and a loving touch to help men and women overcome challenges in life.

Our goal is to minister across boundaries and be a light to the world.
