Our Foundation

“For no one can lay any other foundation than the one we already have – Jesus Christ”
~1 Corinthians 3:11

About God

Did you know that the same God who set the stars in the sky, knows you by name? Our incredible Creator, who shapes the universe, is also our loving Guide. God is a beautiful mystery, revealing Himself in three ways: as our Father who nurtures, Jesus our Brother who saves, and the Holy Spirit who comforts and guides. Each expression of God shows His love and constant presence. 

About Jesus

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the heartbeat of our faith. He’s right there with God, equal in divinity. Now, He didn’t just watch our struggles from a distance. He experienced life as we do, but did it flawlessly, without sin. Then, in an ultimate act of love, He chose to be the perfect sacrifice for all our wrongs, dying on a cross. But death couldn’t hold Him down! He came back to life, ascended to heaven, and we’re eagerly waiting for His return. Want to dive deeper?

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is promised to every believer when they are baptized into God’s kingdom – He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. 

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. Human authors, under supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the supreme source of Truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because God inspires it, it is the Truth without any mixture of error.

About Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. We believe that Scripture teaches that man has a free-will and must choose to follow Christ.

About Eternity

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. Hell is the place of eternal separation from God. Heaven is a place of eternal union with God.

About the Lord’s Supper

At Westshore Christian Church we celebrate open communion. We celebrate every Sunday as was the custom of the early church.

About Baptism

  • We believe in Baptism by immersion
  • Jesus was baptized that way
    (Matthew 3:16)
  • Every baptism was by immersion
    (Acts 2:38-39, 8:38-39, 9:18, 10:46-48, 16:1-15, 16:25-33, 19:1-5)
  • Who should be baptized? Every person who has believed and has repented of their sins and confessed Christ as Lord
    (Acts 2:41, 8:12-13)
  • At Westshore, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand for themselves the true meaning of baptism before we immerse them
