Our Position

Westside Baptist Church is decidedly an…

Independent

Not part of any convention, or national organization. We are not sympathetic, nor do we support the National Council of Churches, the World Council of Churches, Ecumenical Evangelism, Liberalism or Modernism. We are not Emerging nor are we Purpose Driven.

Fundamental

Believe the entire Bible literally, which will cause you to love people and live like Jesus Christ lived.

Bible Believing

The King James Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant preserved Word of God for the English speaking people.

Non-Charismatic

Do not believe in nor practice the modern signs and wonders teachings.

Conservative in our Music

Our music program is centred around songs, hymns, and spiritual songs, avoiding even the slightest trends toward the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) movement of our day.
