Who we are
Here's the deal, West End Baptist Chapel cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. West End Baptist Chapel is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
Where we come from
West End Baptist Chapel was started in 1978 by First Baptist Church Hagerstown. First Baptist had a vision to reach as many people in the community as possible with the Good News of Jesus Christ. In an affront to do that, the church decided that it needed to expand the area that is was reaching and opened a common center in a warehouse on the west end of town. This was to be a safe place where the children could participate in a church-sponsored after-school program. The program continued to grow and soon a new building was erected. More and more people were being drawn to the community center. It was clear that there was a need for a church.
Where we're headed
West End Baptist Chapel just purchased the Winter Street School property which is 33,000 sq ft. We’re excited to move into a larger facility where we can offer more room for our children and youth ministries, a gym for activities and a new sanctuary that can seat 526 people.
