Beginning in 1998 with Rev. Jonas Taylor as Pastor and less than 20 members, West Hills Baptist Church was established. Years later we honor our founders by continuing Christ's mission.
The Vision of West Hills Baptist Church is to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Mission of West Hills Baptist Church is to equip believers to go into the world and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the purpose of seeing lost people saved.
We carry out our mission by:
Reaching lost people with the Gospel through intentional evangelistic and outreach efforts.
Teaching believers and non-believers the truth of God's Word.
Serving the world and local Body of Christ through ministry and mission activities.
The members of West Hills Baptist Church understand and believe in the importance of Prayer and the necessity and dependence on the presence of the Holy Spirit in order to successfully achieve our mission. Only through constant and fervent, spirit-led prayer will we be successful at reaching, teaching and serving.
