Who We Are / Mission Statement
We are a women's interdenominational Bible study which meets at Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Our members are women of all different
ages and from many different churches in the greater Atlanta area. Our meetings are every Wednesday morning (September through March) from 9:30 am until
11:30 am. The first hour is in the sanctuary: praise and worship followed by a teaching lesson. In the second hour, small groups meet in classrooms for
discussion and prayer led by individual facilitators. We also have a group which meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00.
WCBS is ecumenical meaning we focus on the essentials of the Christian faith rather than any individual church’s or denomination’s doctrine.
Our mission is to help women grow in their relationship to Christ (fulfilling the great commission of making disciples) through Bible study, prayer, fellowship,
and accountability. With God's help, our goal is to love, serve, and honor Jesus Christ in all areas of our lives.
What We Believe:
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the Word of God, inerrant and infallible.
We believe God is the sovereign ruler of all things; that He reveals Himself through the Trinity: three distinct persons of Father (our creator), Son
(our redeemer), and Holy
Spirit (our guide).
We believe in the depravity of man, original sin, and man's sinful nature which is rooted in pride and selfishness.
We believe that through God's compassion and love, He has initiated a plan of redemption for man made possible by the atoning death of His Son, Jesus
Christ. Through His plan,
which embraces the free choices of man, His purpose will surely be accomplished.
We believe that Jesus was crucified, buried, rose again and ascended into heaven to be with God the Father, triumphant over death and hell.
We believe that through the Holy Spirit, all who believe in Jesus and ask Him to be their Lord and Savior are regenerated. It is by grace, through faith,
that we are saved and
justified, redeemed and forgiven. As God’s adopted children we inherit eternal life.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. We trust God alone to be the ultimate moral judge of each person, judging each one in light of what
they know, not what they
We believe that by God’s grace those who have come to saving faith begin a process of sanctification (increasing holiness). Through regular confession
in prayer and renewing of
our minds with God's Word, we are slowly conformed to the very character of Jesus. Then, through the Holy Spirit’s power, we are enabled to live holy lives
pleasing to the Father.
We believe Christ calls each of us to discipleship and the bearing of one another's burdens. As evangelicals, we desire to bring the knowledge of Jesus
and salvation through Him
to the lost. As Christ’s ambassadors we are called to service in meeting human needs. Social service becomes evidence of one's faith as well as a preparation
for the proclamation
of God's Word.
We believe Jesus is the head of the church which is made up of all born-again believers. Each believer, as a member of the body of Christ, has been given
certain gifts (spiritual
abilities and ministries) to build up the church and advance the kingdom of God.
We believe God has appointed a day in which He will judge the world as Jesus returns to reign in victory. The unbeliever will be consigned to eternal
punishment and the righteous
(those who know Christ) will begin their eternal fellowship with Christ in God's heavenly kingdom.
