Westside Community Church
Life On Mission
The Story of Westside
Westside Community Church is a diverse, non-denominational church that began forming in 2010 in the greater Huntsville area. We gathered around the idea of making mission more than something we do. We wanted it to define who we are. As a result, we’re an extraordinarily mission-minded congregation whose primary focus is live on mission by making sure everyone realizes the unique role they were created to fill in our world.
Our desire to live on mission led us to make two major decisions. First, we are committed to giving 50% of all income to mission. This means we partner with other non profits both locally and internationally to make a real difference in the community. Second, we decided to move our worship services into the 35805 zip code. This area has long been one of the most forgotten in all of Huntsville but we hope to bring change from the inside as we shone the light of Christ.
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.
