Intention + Direction = Destination (Mission)
The Westview Baptist Journey
The Westview Baptist Journey is a metaphor for our mission: Seeing lives changed by serving others in the selfless Spirit of Jesus.
The Roadmap (strategy) we use on our journey is the ACT Roadmap.
Accept... "Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God." Romans 15:7
Connect... Connecting, meeting together, gathering, encouraging, giving, and sharing are the best ways to move us forward in our walk with God. We need each other!
Transform...Transformation in our lives happens when we get involved in God's work of transforming others. Our job as a church is missional. God has placed us here to make a difference in this community. As we receive acceptance and connect with other believers we gain the strength to serve others.
