We are a congregation that takes seriously the teaching of the Bible and the centrality of the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Though far from perfect we are striving to live out our mission to be obedient, worshiping, and reproducible disciples of Jesus Christ. This mission taken from Matthew 28:16-20 is what we strive for under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ our Lord.

We would love to have you visit with us and experience the family of God through a loving and caring local church. We are a Southern Baptist church with strong and conservative biblical values. We love being a part of the greater community of Zebulon, North Carolina, a small town just east of Raleigh. Come see us! We have opportunities for all ages to worship, study God’s Word, and become part of a vital spiritual family that we pray will help you grow closer to God in your walk with Him.

We are passionate about helping children come to know and love Jesus. We desire to see all children to have the opportunity to hear about Jesus while in a safe, clean and loving environment. We offer a loving nursery and a preschool program for our little ones. Age specific classes are offered for children. All volunteers who work with our children and youth have been through a background screening process.
We have a well-staffed, safe nursery for infants and toddlers up to 23 months of age. The nursery is located conveniently near the worship area so you have quick access to your child. We are a church with young families, so we all understand what it’s like to have babies!
A person may join by making an appointment with one of our Pastors or going to one of the Pastors standing in the front at the end of a service and express your desire to join. Any questions you may have will be answered and we will aguide you through this process. If you are simply interested in finding out more about Wakefield, you can attend one of our new membership classes. The class will not only help you have a better understanding of who we are and how we function, but there is also a tour and you will meet others on staff.
