We're Glad You're Here.

A Message from Eddie Lowen

I’m glad you found us. If you’ve been thinking, “I’d like to take a step toward God,” we can help. Whether you’re just beginning to think about Jesus, or finding your way back to him, we’d love to shine some light on your path.

What kind of church is West Side? Simply put, we help people meet Jesus and tap the Bible’s wisdom. We are convinced that everyone can learn to follow Jesus, regardless of the starting point. And, we’ve seen it happen for people who thought they’d never find a church that connects.

So, look around our site, then visit our campus this Sunday! If you function better with coffee in-hand, hit the café on your way in. See you soon!

Jesus Changes Everything

Beliefs

We trust the Bible. It contains everything needed to get acquainted with God, to live well and to be a great church. The Bible is not only inspiring, it is historically and intellectually sound. Because it was written by dozens of authors over 16 centuries, only God could pull the Bible together. The Bible is a fully-aligned Story of how God is saving the world through Jesus. Sure, parts of it are tough to grasp because we live in a different time and place. However, when the Bible is taught clearly, it is understood and its power to change us is unleashed.

Questions about our doctrine and teaching may be sent to info@wschurch.org.

Current Teaching Series

Sometimes, getting what you ask for isn't all it's cracked up to be. Have you experienced this before? In the Old Testament, when Israel cried out for a "flesh and blood" king to rule over them, God gave them what they wanted. Much like us, the Israelites learned that getting what you ask for doesn't always go so smoothly. What if there was a better way? Join us on Sundays at West Side for Game of Thrones, our summer teaching series where we’ll take a close look at the lives and leadership of Israel’s first three kings and learn together that God’s way is always better than our own.
