What Type of Church is Woodstream?
Woodstream Church is an independent, fundamental, Baptist Church.

Key Point: It is a Pastor-led church, in which the Pastor serves as an under-shepherd and overseer. The Fellowship of Deacons and Stewards assist the Pastor in ministries of shepherding and stewardship.

Independent – Self-governing church.

We are not affiliated with any conventions (e.g., National Baptist Convention or the Southern Baptist Convention).

Fundamental – Basics of the Bible.

Jesus Christ was virgin Born; was crucified and died, was buried, and rose from the grave in bodily form.
And Jesus Christ is coming again.
The Bible is Inspired – divine influence; God-breathed
The Bible is Infallible – dependable; incapable of failing
The Bible is Inerrant – no errors
The Bible is Immutable – unchanging; unchangeable
Baptist – Immersion in water after salvation.

We are not a branch of a mother church, nor dependent on any other church.

History

Woodstream Church (founded as Landover Memorial Baptist Church) conducted its first worship service on Sunday, June 26, 1983, in the Kenmoor Middle School, Landover, Maryland. Nine weeks later on Sunday, August 28, the church conducted its Organizational Service in which it adopted the Church Constitution and By-Laws, Church Covenant, Articles of Faith, and Charter. Dr. R. H. Fitzpatrick, pastor of the Riverdale Baptist Church, Upper Marlboro, Maryland, presided over the service. Reverend Robert A. Wingfield, the founder of Woodstream Church, was installed as its pastor and eleven adult members signed the charter.

On September 27, 1984, the church purchased a 1.277 acre lot in Landover, Maryland. On Easter Sunday, March 29, 1989, the church conducted its first service in the newly constructed sanctuary. In the spring of 1992, the church broke ground for the constructing of its two-story educational wing. The educational wing was completed and dedicated in August 1992. Over the next five years the church continued to grow at a phenomenal rate, necessitating three morning worship services. In the spring of 1997, the church voted to move its services to Eleanor Roosevelt High School to better accommodate its members and Sunday School Department.

On May 6, 1999, the church successfully purchased 17 acres of land in Mitchellville, Maryland. On September 28, 2003, the church conducted its first worship service in its new 81,000 square feet facility. The growth of Woodstream Church has been nothing short of miraculous and is a testament to God's awesome love and power, the sacrifice and dedication of its founder, Pastor Bob Wingfield, and the love and faith of its members.

The history of our church is precious to those who have persevered and walked by faith. The future of the church, by the grace of God, shall be glorious!
