Westside Missionary Baptist Church is about creating a warm, welcoming and worshipful environment. It is our goal to engage in holistic ministry. A ministry that accepts people where they are, but won’t leave them where they are. We are a Spirit filled church that take seriously our social obligations (Matthew 22:35-39; Matthew 25). We believe that our love for God is made evident by the love we share with people (1 John 4:20).
