To help people know, love, and follow Jesus Christ, bring them into community, disciple them to maturity, equip them for service, and mobilize them for mission in order to worship God in all of life.
We desire every person at West End experience:
We learn to follow Jesus in a vibrant, real relationship. He will change us at the core and give us a new heart.
We must be in relationship with each other in order to thrive. The fabric of community weaves us together to offer help before we need it.
We love our neighbors by healing the broken, counseling the confused, relieving the suffering, and giving to the poor.
The gospel is the good news of what God is doing through the person and work of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, God is redeeming an every-nation family and is making all things new. Therefore, we seek to be a gospel-centered church — extending God’s grace to all and advancing his kingdom.
Jesus said his followers would be known by the way they love each other. Therefore, loving as Jesus loves us is central to our life as a church, and it compels us to give ourselves away on behalf of the least and the lost.
To worship God is to declare his worth, and to love him with everything we have and are. Gathering each week as God's people to worship Him together is a high priority to us, as is equipping believers to worship God in every place and through every endeavor.
We are committed to building strong families, understanding the family structure as revealed in God’s Word to be the basic unit on which our society must be based.
A church family shaped by the gospel places a high premium on relationships. Therefore, we are committed to cultivating a culture of welcome and acceptance, encouragement and care.
God is committed to making all things new through Jesus Christ—people, places, and things. Therefore, we work with hope for the transforming of lives by the love of God and the renewing of our community and culture.
The gospel of God’s grace is to be shared by word and deed. Therefore, we seek to offer a redemptive presence to our racially and culturally diverse city—extending God’s mercy and working for justice and beauty.
