Who We Are
Westmount and the world coming to know, love, and follow Jesus Christ.
To be a church that leads healthy conversations about Jesus Christ.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
This church accepts the Scriptures as its authority in matters of faith and practice. Its understanding of Christian truth as contained in the Scriptures is in essential accord with other Baptist churches, but it has no statement of creed apart from the Scriptures, particularly the New Testament.

On June 1, 1981, a small portable trailer opened its doors to Westmount residents seeking worship.
Its parent churches at the Adelaide Street Baptist and First Baptist Churches had seeded money and members to build a new faith community in southwest London. For four years, the congregation, lead by its founding pastor, The Reverend Alex Moir, worshipped in the humble hut, united by their love of God and each other.
The church adopted its constitution on June 13, 1982. In October of that year, the church officially joined the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec and the Middlesex-Lambton Association. Three years later, the trailer would close its doors - not because the church was shuttering, but because it had outgrown its mobile home. On October 5, 1985, Westview's current, permanent building opened. With the added space came room for children's classes, youth groups, and adult ministries.
More and more Londoners joined Westview. Once again, the church had outgrown its building. So in 1995, the Westview Family Life Centre extension was built, featuring a full-sized gymnasium, four classrooms, a nursery, a playroom, and a youth recreation room. Plumbers, electricians and other laborers from the congregation helped with construction.
Today, Westview is a thriving faith community that gives back to London and the world. We run a food cupboard and cook meals for families in need, and send missionaries to Rwanda, Lebanon, South Africa, and more.
