At Westview Baptist Church, we believe that we worship the Lord individually all week long as we read our Bibles, pray for others, serve in our community and acknowledge His Lordship over every aspect of our lives.
But there’s something special that happens when we come together to worship. We are encouraged by one another, and we can bear each other’s burdens. We can celebrate what God has been doing in our individual lives since the last time we met to worship together.
We believe the worship of the Lord through music and song is quite similar. We believe that when we gather at church to worship together, it should be a celebration of the musical worship that has been offered individually all week long.
At Westview Baptist Church, we revere and celebrate the timeless truths and encouragement of time-tested, traditional hymns of the faith but we also embrace the God-honoring worship music being created by today’s worship leaders and songwriters. It moves us into honest, heartfelt worship in our cars and homes, and we believe it can do the same in the church.
That is why our worship services treat both old and new music as equals. The music with which we worship changes often; sometimes it is mostly contemporary, and sometimes it is mostly traditional hymns. We’ve even been known to worship with banjo and accordion from time to time. So if you didn’t care for the music in our service one week, then come back and give us another shot. You’ll find that we’re not pretentious people putting on a fancy show; we are real people just like you who are honest about our own inadequacies but who are submitted to our Savior.
We will endeavor to aid your Sunday worship by making available to you, several days in advance through our website, the complete list of songs with which we will worship together on the following Sunday. Our prayer is that you will incorporate these songs into your individual worship throughout the week, so that when we come together on Sundays, the songs will already be familiar to you, and our musical worship can truly be a celebration of what the Lord has done in our hearts throughout the preceding week.
