Our mission of loving God, loving people, and making disciples summarizes our purpose as a church. This mission wasn't our idea. Jesus is the one who has called us and every one of his followers to passionately pursue this mission when he taught:
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." - Matthew 22:37-39
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20
Our seven core values define what is most important to us as a church and what keeps our church focused on its mission. The core values too come right out of Scripture.
We're committed to passionately pursue the mission of Jesus and for the core values to characterize our lives and the life of Westside. We ask you to join with us in pursuing them and encouraging others to do the same. Let's join in prayer that God will do a deep work in each of our lives, our church as a whole, the world around us, and the nations.
