Our Mission

“Guiding people on the journey of following Jesus”
Westside is an authentic Christian community that can help you take the next step in your faith, whether you are just beginning your journey of following Jesus or you have been walking this road for your whole life. We are proud to offer Bible classes, small group experiences and practical teaching that will inspire you to grow closer to God.

  • Is there childcare?

    During worship service on Sunday morning we offer a fully-staffed nursery for children under 3 and Kids Praise for children in preschool through 3rd grade. After worship service, we have Bible classes for children and teenagers (6 months through 12th grade). We also offer Bible classes for all ages on Wednesday nights. Contact the church office for more information about our Children’s ministry.

  • How should I dress?

    Westside is a laid-back church that welcomes you just as you are. Most of our members and visitors dress casually so we welcome you to come in whatever makes you feel comfortable!

  • Is there plenty of parking?

    We have ample parking available for you and your family. You may enter off of Stockdale Highway (just west of El Rio Drive) or from the side and rear of our building off of El Rio and Quailwood Road.

  • How can I connect with Westside?

    You can connect with Westside on social media: Facebook, YouTube, UStream, and Instagram. We also live-stream our services and post sermon audio and video online and through our podcast. For more information on how to connect with us online, click here: westsidelife.org/connect.
