Our Mission & Vision
The mission of Westagte Free Will Baptist Church is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of missionary activity and support, to minister the ordinances, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.
Pastor Dr. Kevin Smith, Senior Pastor
Welcome to Westgate! What a joy to have you visit our web site. My wife Tonya and I have been at Westgate for 17 years now and God has been so good! In those 17 years God has blessed us with two beautiful daughters Morgan and Madison and the church has relocated built two buildings and the congregation has grown to over 200 faithful attenders on Sunday mornings.
I hope that by spending some time on our site you will be able to catch a glimpse of who we are, what we believe, where we are headed, but most importantly Who we seek to honor and worship.
Westgate is a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching church. As Pastor, it is my desire to preach and expound the Word of God in each and every service in a way that will edify and encourage the saint and evangelize the lost.
Our worship services are not intended to entertain, but to eternally change those who attend. It would be an honor to have you worship with us in one of our sevices at Westgate. Please continue to "check us out" on the web and if you have any further questions or needs, please feel free to contact us personally by phone, email or a visit.
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
