About

Westgate Christian Church

We are a church that teaches and preaches from the Bible.  We have many opportunities for you to grow in your walk with Christ and build relationships with others who are doing the same.

Our Sunday morning service is a time for all to worship God, to share in communion, hear the Word applied to our lives and to fellowship.

There are Sunday School classes for all ages, and a message geared for kids during our main service.

We have Small Groups that meet throughout the week in various homes around town.

Westgate Christian Church supports local and national ministries as well as overseas missions and missionaries working with unreached people groups.

Beliefs

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word from God.  Within the pages of the Holy Bible, salvation is found in Christ Jesus, God’s Son.

We believe the Lord our God is One, eternally present in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection and in His ascension into heaven—where He is seated at God’s right hand and “all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him” by God (Matt. 28:18-20).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit.  By His indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Christ-centered life.

Christians who have adhered to God’s Word and have been obedient to God in Christ are saved unto the resurrection of life.  Those who have chosen to follow anything or anyone else but Jesus Christ are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe for any person to receive the free gift of eternal life, they must follow what the Bible teaches.  We believe anyone who comes to Christ must come on His terms, not theirs.

We believe Jesus gave clear instructions on this gift of salvation.  Jesus taught his disciples, they in turn have taught others and these teachings are found throughout the Holy Bible in several places (see Acts 2:38-47; Acts 8:9-13; Acts 8:26-40; Acts 9:1-19; Acts 10:1-48).

We believe Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19,20 is clear—we are to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and (then) teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you.”  We practice the Biblical way of Baptism by immersion—to dip, to plunge under water for the forgiveness of sins and thereby receiving the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus tells us in His Word that after a person gives their life to Him, Jesus calls us (by the indwelling Holy Spirit) to grow, through a lifestyle of serving and working for Him.

We believe in the unity of the saints in Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Holy One of God, who paid the ransom for our sin with His body and His blood.  Our unity is found in Jesus Christ, not in denominational doctrine.
