Mission Statement

Our late, beloved Pastor and founder, Apostle Smallwood E. Williams founded Bible Way Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith of Washington D.C., Inc. on his conviction that:“The Bible Way Church is not just another denomination, organization or congregation, but a way of life and living in harmony with the Word of God, rightly divided. A church where no stranger needs to feel strange.”He further established that the mission of this church is “to propagate the Word of God so that persons become living epistles of God.” ( II Corinthians 3:2-3)
