Who We Are

Our Vision

Westmount and the world flocking to Jesus Christ.

Our Response

To be a church that leads healthy conversations about Jesus Christ.

Our 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.
