Who We Are
When you walk through the doors of our building, you will encounter our church, the people of God. We are a growing community of young and old, well-off and not-so-well-off, singles and families, college students and retirees, reaching out for Jesus.
While our worship style may not be fixed from week to week, the content of our worship is. The content of our worship is the gospel. We proclaim the gospel through our worship by celebrating God’s mighty deeds of salvation.
Our mission at the Baptist Church of West Chester is transforming lives through Christ by building positive connections in a diverse community.
Our core values include Christ Centered Living, Unbiased Hospitality, Responsive Service, and Authentic Community.
There are many opportunities for spiritual formation at BCWC.
The foundation of all the opportunities is our belief that we seek to grow in our relationship with God not for our own sake, but for the sake of others.

'On the Go' Running Group
BCWC On the Go is our congregation's running group.
Join us in virtual 5K's this fall!
If you participate in either of those below, take a picture before or after and send to Pastor Zach at email@example.com.
4th Annual Paoli 5K
Paoli Presbyterian Church is thrilled to be able to host our
4th annual benefit 5K... and this year - it's virtual!
Run or walk anytime, anywhere you choose the
weekend of September 11th-13th!
All funds raised by this race will benefit CityTeam, a Christian ministry whose work serves those in need in Chester, PA.
Paoli Presbyterian Church is proud to respond to this need by partnering with CityTeam. There was healthy demand for CityTeam's services before coronavirus hit, but now demand is through the roof. All proceeds raised will go to support their work, including providing food for the hungry, supplies for new mothers, and providing rehabilitation services for those addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Sign up early!
Through the generosity of our sponsors, we have raised money to bless the first 50 participants with pre-paid registration! Because this race is virtual, the number of participants is limitless! After we've reached the first free 50 registrations, more people can join for $20 per person.
1. Register online. Registrations will be accepted through Saturday, September 12 if you want to have your time counted. All registrants can pickup a special Paoli 5K t-shirt from the church on Friday, September 11 from 4:00-6:00pm. Out of town participants will have their shirts mailed to them. (However, please note that only those who registered by Saturday, August 22 at 6pm EST will receive their shirt prior to the race. Others will receive their shirts at a later date.) * We will have race bibs you can download to put on shirts, strollers, wheelchairs, and pets so everyone you pass can cheer you on and be part of the fun!
West Chester STOMPS Cancer 5K
We know you all look forward to our fun Friday night in the heart of West Chester; however, in light of recent events related to the COVID-19 virus and concern for the safety of our staff and community members, we've decided to transition our annual West Chester STOMPS Cancer 5K & Family Walk to an entirely virtual race. Our hope is that once things get back to normal, we'll be able to have an even bigger party in-person next year!
As we look forward to this new way of coming together to help local Families with cancer, we want to invite you to help spread the Unexpected Amazingness safely in your own community as a virtual runner or walker! This virtual event will allow STOMPers to run or walk from October 10th through October 17th at any location that is convenient and safe for you.
Please join us in supporting our mission during this unprecedented time by
registering for this virtual event! We encourage you to create your own team and invite your friends and family to join you. All teams receive a 10% off discount code to share with team members. Our goal is to top the number of teams
we had last year... an incredible 25!
