what we believe

The chosen practices and statement of faith of Westside Bible Fellowship are contained in our Church Handbook. Printed copies are available at the church, though you may download it by clicking below. 

We humbly acknowledge that individual Christians and local churches differ in their application of the Biblical principles that govern church practice. We also recognize that Westside is not necessarily the best or right church for everyone. 

We cannot insist on uniformity of opinion in regard to all areas of church doctrine and practice. But we do encourage anyone who chooses to make Westside their home fellowship to respond to differences within the body in a way that preserves "unity" and "peace" (Ephesians 4:1-3) and from an attitude of humble submission to the leaders of the church (Hebrews 13:17).

If you have questions about our chosen practices, please contact one of the elders (pastors)contact us,  or call us at 503-640-5151 and leave a message so one of our elders can return your call.
