Values and Vision


We Believe God has West Hamilton on his heart

Our aim is to bring whole families into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s the starting point to release families into God's abundant life. Our focus right now is on making disciples who make disciples.


Transforming Lives

We believe God wants to build his kingdom in West Hamilton.
Will you build with us?

God's transforming power for our community starts with the good news about Jesus Christ.

Jesus died for our sins and rose again so we could have eternal life with him - starting now!
No matter what your past is, we welcome you with open arms, just as Jesus did

Westside Church is a bible-based church that believes healing is for today, and that God hands out spiritual gifts to his children.

Our Values

The following is who God intends us to be, even if some are still a "work in progress". Our fellowship:

  • loves and worships Jesus
  • has eternal or ‘kingdom’ vision
  • is founded on prayer and the truth of God’s word (written and revealed)
  • sees signs and wonders confirming our focus and direction
  • knows what it is to have ‘Christ in you’
  • knows how to love and is not too busy to care
  • is a family of all ages, built on real and connected relationships
  • has a desperate desire to see people saved and discipled - 'Gather, Grow, Go'
  • is equipped to move in God’s giftings (children too)
  • encourages and enables individuals to fulfil their destiny in Christ
  • recognises the call to go to the nations
  • knows how to celebrate!
