Woodridge Baptist Church

Woodridge Baptist Church is a fairly large Southern Baptist church located in the growing West Mobile area. Organized in 1983, Woodridge has grown from a small church plant to one of the larger churches in the Mobile area. Woodridge is a closely united church located in a populated area with 150,000 people in a 6-mile radius of the church. The church is blessed to have large facilities located on 18 acres in a prime area of West Mobile. We have a full-time ministerial staff of 5 under the Senior Pastor.

Our Church Mission Statement is “Woodridge Baptist Church exists to love all people in all places while leading them to share life together as completely devoted followers of Jesus. We fulfill our mission by Gathering, Growing, and Going.”

We believe Woodridge, located in a most prime location, is poised at a “strategic point in time” in west Mobile and with God’s blessing the church is ready for revival and explosive growth.
