West Durham Baptist Church is celebrating its 131st Anniversary/Homecoming Celebration! Our theme is “Expanding
Our Reach: Reaching Up, Out, In and Over,” and our theme scripture is “praising God and enjoying the favor of all people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47).
