Ministry Distinctives

Mission: We are a vibrant Reformed Baptist church that exists to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ to the Glory of God through:

  • Faithful preaching and teaching of the Word of God

  • Fervency in prayer, and

  • Fellowship in a loving community.

Family Integrated Worship: At Westview Christian, we value the importance of family and recognize the benefit of having families worship together. We believe that there is a holiness and sacredness to the Body of Christ gathered together to worship the One True and Living God, and we desire that everyone benefit from the ministry of Worship and the Word. We encourage you to bring your children, regardless of age, into the service; however, we do have a nursery and cry room available at your convenience.

God Centered: We affirm, alongside the reformers of the Protestant Reformation, that the chief end, or purpose, of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. At Westview, the purpose of our existence is to bring glory to God, and that purpose is reflected in every aspect of life and ministry. (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Scripture Driven:  We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, being the divinely inspired and inerrant revelation of God, are the only infallible rule for faith and practice. It is for this reason that we avoid the fads and gimmicks that have become popular in the American evangelical church world, and instead, give the Word of God its position of primacy in our corporate worship through expository preaching. (Isaiah 40:8, Rom. 1:16, 2 Tim. 3:16-17)

Gospel Focused: At Westview Christian, we understand that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not only the focal point of the Bible, but also all of history. We take the Biblical Theological view that the thread of redemption is woven throughout Scripture, beginning in seed form in Genesis 3:15,  flowering with the Incarnation, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, and culminating at full blossom in the consummation of Christ's kingdom and the new creation in the Book of Revelation.  We acknowledge that the Gospel is the lens through which we view all of life; it's not merely the initial point of our salvation, but also the hope and foundation of our growth and maturity in the faith.
