Serving Christ. Building Faith. Praising God.

At Western Heights Baptist Church, we are driven by our call in Scripture to be a faithful bride to Jesus Christ.  Ultimately, our goal in ministry is to glorify Christ faithfully in all that we do, providing our people with a church body that functions together to bring glory to the name of Jesus through worship, discipleship, evangelism, and service.   For more on our beliefs, check out our What We Believe tab, and come visit us soon!

At WHBC, we value the salvation and discipleship of our young people.  Because of this, we take seriously our opportunities to share the Gospel with children and students, and to walk with them as they accept Christ and grow in the Christian life.  From infant nursery to student discipleship, WHBC takes seriously the growth, safety, and care of our young people.  Make sure to check out our various children and student ministry opportunities at the Get Involved and Upcoming Events tabs!


At WHBC, we recognize that the Christian life is about more than just a salvation moment.  As believers, we are called to grow in knowledge and obedience with Christ through personal and corporate discipleship.  WHBC takes seriously this call to discipleship, offering multiple opportunities each week for adults to take part in discipleship through intensive Bible study, prayer, and corporate fellowship.  WHBC also has multiple gender-specific ministries such as Women on Mission and the Brotherhood that help to foster discipleship amongst those who are living life together!  Check out our Get Involved tab for more information about how to get started with discipleship opportunities at WHBC!


...and let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25
