At Westside, our mission is "making friends and leading them to follow Jesus for life." We value getting to know people in our community, fostering genuine friendships, and sharing God's love tangibly. And as a church we seek to learn from the Bible and each other how to be authentic followers of Jesus Christ, and find the "abundant" and "eternal" life only Jesus gives.
We believe that God’s far more interested in relationships than “religion”. The relationship He’s MOST interested in having is the one He has with you and me. To make this possible, He came to live among us through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a perfect life, taught his friends and enemies alike about the lives they should live and was eventually crucified (executed) to pay the price for all of mankind’s failures and sin.
The Bible teaches that it’s by accepting Jesus as our Savior and asking Him to live in us and through us that we literally become “New Creations.” As Christ-followers, we’re able to make a positive difference in our home, neighborhood and community by serving as His hands and feet on earth.
