Vision

Wodonga District Baptist Church has a vision to Thrive!

We strive to be a community where people can flourish, thrive and experience the "life to the full" that Jesus said he came to give (John 10:10 NIV). The only way for anyone to thrive is through Jesus. Jesus said "... Remain in me ... apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:4-5 NIV). We want to help every person come to know Jesus and grow ever closer in relationship with Him.

Thriving is not just a feeling, it is an out working of having faith and trust in Jesus.

These key statements capture the heart of what it means to Thrive!
