a closer look...


what we believe

  • The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God and is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice
  • There is one God who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit; Co-equal, Co-eternal, Co-existent
  • The deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary atoning death, His burial, His resurrection, His ascension, His current reign over all things in Heaven. 
  • Man was created by a special act of God, in His image. In Adam, all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men and women are sinners and stand justly condemned before God. 
  • Salvation from sin is obtained only through the free grace of God on the basis of the satisfactory death and resurrection of Jesus Christ alone, without any consideration of any of man’s works, good or bad. 
  • Both Heaven and Hell are literal and eternally existing places. 
  • All who are born of the Spirit (born again) through faith in Jesus Christ can have assurance of salvation and are eternally secure in Christ
  • The church is comprised of individuals who have experienced salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and have become spiritually united as the living expression of the Body of Christ of which He is the head. 
  • Missions and evangelism is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and is our joyful burden to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. 
  • Water baptism by immersion is the believer’s response to Christ’s command and is performed as an outward sign, or testimony, of an inward work of regeneration by the Holy Spirit within a believer. 
  • Communion (Lord’s Supper) commemorates, by way of remembrance, the death of our Lord Jesus Christ and proclaims our blessed hope in His return. It is the means of expressing our individual fellowship with Christ and our corporate fellowship within the Church.

a southern baptist church

Westwood Baptist Church is autonomous and maintains the rights to govern its own affairs, independent of any denominational control. Recognizing, however, the benefits of cooperation with other churches in world missions, this church voluntarily affiliates with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Tennessee Baptist Convention, and the Bradley Baptist Association in it’s international, national, state, and local expressions through an organized effort called the Cooperative Program.
