Our Purpose

Westside Baptist Church is going forth preaching a great message (the Gospel), fulfilling the great commission, and living the great commandment for God’s glory.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20

“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:36-40.

We Do This When We…

Exalt the Lord Jesus Christ through worshipping Jesus Christ as God (Colossians 1:18,19).

Energize people to love God with all their hearts through preaching God’s Word and Christ-honouring music (Matthew 22:38).

Embrace them into our church family through membership and fellowship (Acts 2:41).

Educate them in Bible doctrines and Christian living through Sunday schools and discipleship (2Timothy 2:15).

Encourage them to be involved in ministry through various ministry opportunities (Psalm 100:2).

Evangelize the western suburbs of Melbourne and regions beyond with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelistic opportunities (Psalms 126:5,6).
