To be and make disciples of Jesus Christ, believing His claims, imitating His character and obeying His commands. Matthew 28:19,20
What does that look like amongst us? More like Jesus!
Our vision of God – more like Jesus.
Our shared experience of each other for the world – more like Jesus.
Our vision of the future – more like Jesus.
Our response to the poor, oppressed, broken (yep, all of us) and our world’s most pressing problems – more like Jesus.


We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a cross shaped life*, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.


* We have added in this line as we believe it bridges the gap between Jesus’ birth and death with a statement about his remarkable life as servant king.


We come together as the church to be reminded of the go of Christ.

So we will:

Go out and feed the hungry,

Go out and clothe the naked,

Go out and fight for justice,

Go out and end oppression,

Go out and proclaim anew the old old story,

Go out and associate with those who don’t look like us,

think like us, act like us and don’t even like us.

We will do it all in the name of the one who sent us,

His name is Jesus!

Each week at Westcity we say the above paragraph as our benediction.
We do this because we believe that the purpose of the church is to be a caring community for the world. Because we believe we aren’t just called to make a living but to make a difference.
To be a city on a hill that can’t be hidden.
We also believe that as we ‘go’ and serve others we enter into Christ’s work of welcome, restoration and healing both for ourselves and others.
That when we come along side those on the margins we see and encounter Christ.
