“As a church, we are not oldfashioned, we are timeless,” he explained. “We teach the timeless truths, and we sing the timeless songs of the faith.”
When Pastor Greg Wilt Sr. looks out at the Liberty Lake community, he sees more than parks and neighborhoods, schools and businesses or roads and roundabouts. “People often discuss the physical infrastructure of a community, but we do not always think about the spiritual infrastructure,” said Wilt, the founding pastor of Liberty Lake Baptist Church. “We want to be a part of developing the spiritual infrastructure of Liberty Lake and the surrounding area.” With the celebration of its fifth anniversary this past fall, the church recently made a further investment in the community, purchasing property just west of the Ridgeline High School development with plans to eventually renovate an existing 6,500-square-foot building and move to the new site.
