A FREE GRACE DOCTRINAL TEACHING CHURCH
West Side Baptist Church is a dynamic Bible doctrinal teaching church.We teach exegetically and categorically from the Scriptures to help the believer advance to spiritual maturity. Through spiritual maturity the believer (1) becomes pleasing to their heavenly Father, (2) will experience mental and emotional stability in this life, and (3) be rewarded in the life to come at the Judgment Seat of Christ as an overcomer.

The ministries of the church are dedicated to reaching and teaching individuals of all ages:
First: A clear presentation of the Message of Life whereby one receives eternal life by faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone.
John 6:47 (NKJV) Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.
Second: to disciple the believer to spiritual maturity:
Colossians 1:28 (NASB) We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Romans 12:2 (NASB) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect
