WHAT WE BELIEVE
We thank God for all the saints, past and present, who have and are still working to keep our congregation biblical in preaching, spiritual in focus, evangelistic in Spirit and nondenominational in status, a viable part of the brotherhood. Writing the history of the Westside has been an enlightening and enjoyable experience. We are deeply grateful to the many ministers and members who have entered our doors over the years imparting Spiritual enrichment upon us. Giving all the Praise, all the Glory and all the Honor to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit, our Guide.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.
(2 Sam. 23:2; Luke 1:70; 2 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:1; 2 Pet 1:20-21)
We believe that "God created the heavens and the earth" and that He sustains His creation by His power.
(Gen 1:1, 11-12; Psa. 33:6, 104:14; Heb 11:3)
We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(Gen. 1:26; Matt. 3:16-17, 28:19; Eph. 4:4-6; 1 Pet. 1:2)
We believe that every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Rom. 3:23; Gal. 3:22)
We believe the gospel is God's power to save man from sin and that the gospel must be obeyed.
(Rom. 1:16, 1 Cor. 1:18, 15:1-4, 2 Thess. 1:7-10)
We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and that He now sits at the right hand of God as mediator between God and man. (Acts 2:32-36. 26:23; Heb. 10:12, 1Tim. 2:5)
We believe there is one mode and one type of baptism today.
That one baptism is water baptism and the mode is by immersion (not sprinkling or pouring).
(Eph. 4:5; Rom 6:3-4)
We believe that there is one body, the body is the church, and that the Lord adds the saved to His church.
(Eph. 1:20-23, 4:4; Col. 1:18; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Acts 2:37-47)
We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return as the Righteous Judge and He will judge humanity according to His word.
