We're Happy You've Come

Sweat Memorial Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church in Waycross who is inspired by Jesus’ love and empowered by His Spirit to bring the good news about Him to our neighbors and our world.


A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

John 13:34-35


Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.


Matthew 28:19-20


So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:7

Sweat Memorial Baptist Church exists to point people to Jesus, proclaim the gospel and help people find purpose and truth in Christ.

A Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others.

That his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.
