History of Westgate

Dr. Smith began as pastor of Arcadia Freewill Baptist Church with a membership of 50. Under his leadership the membership grew to over 200 members.

Arcadia FBW Church purchased 10 acres in 2002 and built a new church in our current location on Blackstock Rd. Arcadia FWB Church became Westgate Church.

In 2007 we added a Family Life Center and developed a softball complex. Westgate Church members established a softball ministry that has reached out to other churches and organizations in the community for over 10 years.

In 2011 we remodeled the sanctuary to seat up to 500 and established DVD, TV and Radio outreach ministries.

Westgate continues to grow as new families and individuals experience our warm fellowship and sense of mission in this world.

We hosts seasonal creative outreach opportunities to encourage the community to come and experience God’s love and redemption.


Westgate Church’s continuing mission is to provide vision, counselling, discipleship, guidance, growth and opportunities to serve.
