Our Mission

To see all people become part of God’s family.

Our Vision

Family is at the heart of our name because family is at the heart of our mission. We are a spiritual family in submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We desire healing, wholeness, and spiritual growth based on biblical principles and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We are dedicated to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ by releasing believers to impact our community and our world according to the gifts God has given them.

In keeping with the analogy of a family being made up of children, parents, and grandparents, we encourage inter-generational relationships in all of the practical expressions of our mission and vision.

Thank you for taking time to check out our website. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve recently become part of the family, we want to welcome you and also help you look for ways to get more connected and involved.

Westside Family Fellowship stands firmly in the mainstream of historical Christianity.  It takes the Bible as its all-sufficient source of faith and practice and subscribes to the historic creeds of the universal Church and thus its Tenets of the Faith and their accompanying scripture references are to be understood per the historical, orthodox, and traditional meanings.

Westside values relationships. We seek to give opportunity for the expression of community through various kinds of small groups, ministries and events. Through community, we endeavor to help individuals to develop and to grow spiritually.  We also have a passion to support and equip families. We will often offer marriage enrichment and parenting events throughout the year.

Small Groups have always been a part of Westside. Twice a year, in September and February we offer a variety of small groups.  We have general fellowship groups that focus on mutual encouragement and spiritual development. Other groups focus on Bible study and other equipping type tools.  Other small groups concentrate on a particular ministry or service.

At Westside we are blessed to have a wide representation of all ages. That can certainly be seen at our regular Sunday morning services where young adults, families and children, and older adults, gather all together.  We are fortunate to have talented worship teams that lead the congregation in contemporary praise and worship. We are a charismatic church that seeks to be lead by the Holy Spirit and give room for His leading and for the gifts of the Spirit to be manifested. In the preaching time, we endeavor to honor God’s word and to preach in a way that is life giving and applicable to everyone.

We also have ongoing special events that we have throughout the year that have proven to be very impactful.

Our annual men’s retreat occurs each February at Galvin Lake. Men gather for a full weekend together and enjoy rich fellowship, and deep sharing with one another. Each year men come away encouraged, inspired, and transformed.

In May the whole church gathers at Chubb Lake Bible Camp during the Victoria Day long weekend. This is an event for the entire family.  In this beautiful and rustic location the whole family can enjoy recreational activities of all kinds. It has proven to be such a rich time of families relating with one another and being challenged with times of worship and the Word.

The women meet each October at Ness Lake Bible Camp. They meet for a full weekend and have experienced wonderful times of deep sharing and ministering to one another. This too has proven to be very impactful for all who participate.

At Christmas we transform our auditorium in order to enjoy a beautiful banquet together.  We come together at the Christmas season to enjoy inspiration and great food. The fun and laughter that has been experienced during these times are legendary.

Finally, a ministry that has been an integral focus for our church since the beginning is Westside Academy.  Bringing redemption to culture through character transformation and intellectual development, our K-12 school has served our church and the community well for over 30 years.
