Three Churches, Three Languages, Three Conduits For Spreading The Gospel
LAKE WALES–Three churches on one campus, reaching three distinct people groups, is a glimpse of God’s work at its finest, believes Scott Markley, lead pastor of First Baptist Church of Lake Wales.
As the hosting church, First Baptist has opened the doors of its auxiliary building to two non-English speaking missions. One of them, Elim Baptist Mission Church, is a Haitian congregation of about 70 people who meet in the basement of First Baptist’s former building, now affectionately called the “Dome.”
The other congregation, the newly formed Iglesia Bautista Conexion Hispana, meets upstairs in the same building. “Sunday mornings are a rousing good time of worship,” said Markley.
