New Here?

Welcome to Westside! 

It is never easy to visit a new church for the first time, so we want to be as helpful as we can in making your experience an enjoyable one. Westside, led by Pastor Dave Shore, is a dynamic church that will connect with your daily life.  Whether you are just curious about church and God or you are a committed Christ-follower, you are welcome here.  Enjoy visiting our website, but don't stop there.  Join us this Sunday for our worship service.  It may just change your life forever! 

How should I dress?

At Westside we want you to feel comfortable to worship God with us.  Some people like to dress up for worship while others dress more casually.  We believe that God is more interested in your heart than he is in how you dress.  So, you will find some people dressed more formally while others will be in jeans and shorts.  Dress how you are most comfortable and you will be loved and accepted just the way you are.

What denomination is Westside Church?

 
Westside Church is affiliated with the Nazarene Denomination.  We are a Christian people.  We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin birth.
 
We are a Holiness (d. to be set apart) people.  God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called by various terms including "entire sanctification" and "baptism with the Holy Spirit"-cleansing us from all sin; renewing us in the image of God: empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves; and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.
 
We are a Missional people.  We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (2 Corinthians 6:1). Our mission (a) begins in worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, (c) encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and (d) prepares women and men for Christian service through Christian higher education.
 

Who can go to Westside?

 
We welcome ANYONE, from ANY walk of life and in ANY stage of life to join our community.  Just as God welcomes all as His children, we welcome all into the church.

What is there for the Children?

 
We take both the care and safety of your children very seriously. All our pastoral staff and children and youth workers must pass a background clearance. We want you to feel secure in who takes care of your children during the service.
For children ages newborn through two's, we offer a fully staffed nursery in a fun, kid-friendly environment. For children ages 3-6th grade there are Sunday school classes during our first service and Children's worship during our second service. Every Sunday evening is designated Family Worship and all children age 3 and up attend worship service and sit with their parents. This gives parents an opportunity to teach their children what it means to worship God as a family.
