The Foundations of West Main Baptist Church

       Willis started in the ministry in 1983. He has worked for Mt. Rogers CSB since 12/15/1980. This continues to be a foundation in which we come to understand everyone is an individual with their needs being individualized. He had a burden to plant a church in Abingdon, Va. This dream materialized on Dec. 8th, 1991, when they had their first public service. God has Divinely blessed, so all the glory goes to him.


       God has given us wonderful members that have been a blessing. Members that are supportive in allowing God's Word to direct us and to build the ministry on. God has given a wonderful Board also to work with and youth pastor, Brian Smith in which God is greatly using. In addition to the church attendee's God has blessed through so many community folks in Abingdon and surrounding area as well. Our heart's desire is to be a blessing and grateful to all who have contributed in any manner, whether a member of the church or the warm community that has been so supportive.
