Bayside's Vision

To create an environment where people are transformed by living out God’s Word.


Bayside Community Church is a diverse community of believers focused on the mission of offering restoration through Jesus Christ. While we do subscribe to Southern Baptist doctrine, we do not allow our affiliation to Baptist doctrine to become a dividing factor. Our ultimate authority on truth and code of conduct is the infallible word of God, found in the Bible. Our commitment to presenting the full and accurate word of God as well as our commitment to diversity (all races, ethnicities, worship styles, and socio-economic statuses are all welcome) have allowed us to grow a congregation with folks from Snow Hill, Pocomoke, Wallop’s Island, New Church, Princess Anne, Westover, Eden, Stockton, Girdletree, Greenbackville, Chincoteague, Accomack, Mappsville, Hallwood, Crisfield, Marion Station, and many other Delmarva towns. We offer an inviting, caring atmosphere with the best contemporary worship service in Pocomoke, Virginia’s Eastern Shore and the surrounding points of interest.

Bayside's Core Values

Evangelism: We are committed to bringing the lost into a relationship with Jesus Christ and the unchurched into fellowship with other believers.

Worship: We are committed to developing a meaningful and exciting atmosphere of seeking and praising God through music, drama, and technology.

Relationships: We are committed to connecting with one another through personal and nurturing relationships.

Discipleship: We are committed to developing fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Truth: We are committed to using the Holy Scripture as our only source of authority and truth.

Prayer: We are committed to seeking direction and developing all aspects of our ministry through prayer.

Open Hand: We are committed to handling God’s resources with an open hand, sharing with others as the Holy Spirit leads.

Kingdom Cooperation: We are committed to working with God’s entire Kingdom to accomplish His purposes; therefore we desire to work in cooperation with other churches in Pocomoke City.
