Plan A Visit
Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship gatherings. You can engage with others as much as you want, or remain anonymous if you prefer. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love, and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus. A typical service at Westside is about 90 minutes long and consists of several elements: a warm welcome, music from our worship leaders, plus a helpful and inspiring message from our lead pastor, Henry Tolbert, or one of our other gifted teachers. Our Sunday gathering time is 10:30am. We would love to have you as our guest!
Why We Exist
“To bring transformation by inviting diverse people into Christ-Centered community.” That is our mission. It points to our desire to see lives and communities changed with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hope to accomplish this mission by creating both small and large group opportunities for people to explore faith. Those more comfortable with the large group worship can join us on Sunday mornings and those looking for a low impact opportunity can try one of our Missional Communities. These Missional Communities meet in homes across the greater Huntsville area and consist of 6 to 12 people who gather to discuss scripture and do life together.
Why We Do What We Do
Our motives describe the core values that guide our church in decision-making and leadership. We fight with great tenacity to protect the culture of our church and our motives help us remain laser focused on our calling. These five values also describe who you can expect to become as you partner with us in ministry.
Molding believers, influencing the world
In matters of faith and practice within the context of the larger Christian community, it is our desire to live out the saying “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things charity.” At the same time, we want individuals and churches who are endorsing and/or supporting us to know where we are doctrinally so there is never a doubt about essential doctrines that we will advocate.
