Pastor Bill Vest
Pastor Vest is the pastor of Wildwood Baptist Church in the small
town of Englewood in east Tennessee. He came to the WBC as a
guest speaker during “Baptist College Days,” and almost 28 years
later he is still expounding the Word of God to this community.
Pastor Vest was both saved and called to pastoral ministry during his
senior year of college. He believes in an expositional ministry,
teaching through passages verse by verse, so that people may find
eternal and abundant life by knowing God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
He encourages those who know God to pursue discipleship in a way
that “makes visible the invisible realities of God,” so that others may
come to know Him and riches of His grace. His messages aim to help
“supplement faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and
knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and
steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection,
and brotherly affection with love,” so that we may be effective and
fruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
