The most valuable thing for any person to realize is that he or she is of indescribable value to Jesus. There has never been anyone just like you, nor will there ever be! And Jesus has come so that you might find out just how good life can be for you and those around you. We believe that Jesus alone can give us the opportunity to live a fulfilling life now and an eternal one after we have died. The relationship Jesus wants to have with you is one that makes all of the difference in the world - it's a matter of life and death. And he wants you to choose life by choosing him.
We believe that every person with whom we come in contact with is someone Jesus wants us to meet and get to know. That's why we are interested in getting to know you better. Your combination of gifts, experiences, humor, and passions will make us a stronger church. And it will bring you home to a place where Jesus wants you to be.
Becoming a follower of Jesus begins with a few simple steps, but you must be willing to take these steps seriously and honestly:
You must admit that you cannot live a perfect life, which is what God expects us to do. This means that you must recognize that you need someone who has lived a perfect life (that's Jesus) to rescue you.
You must turn away from living your own way and choose to live Jesus' way. This means that you must forget the way you now live and focus on living the way Jesus wants you to live.
You must face up to Jesus and tell him that he is going to be in charge of your life from now on. This means that he becomes both your Savior (rescurer) and Lord (master).
You must do all of this by simply trusting that he is listening to you and will keep his promise that he will enter into your life and assure you that he is with you forever.
Tell someone who already knows Jesus that you have made this decision, had this conversation with Jesus, and want to to get started on the journey. That could be a Christian friend you might know, a neighbor that has told you about Jesus, or someone here at WPC.
This will be the BEST decision of your life. Now join us on our journey!
You might be asking yourself "WHAT IS A COVENANT PARTNER?"
We do not believe in having members like a country club. We are NOT a country club. We are all committed to be more than just casual observers who casually come and go from our church life. We have promised (as in a covenant) to be partners in this church and all it's ministries so that this church of God may flourish and create flourishing disciples of Jesus. We are partners, servants, brothers, and sisters; we are all sinners and we welcome all who understand that they too are sinners.
The Session invites anyone who is interested in becoming a Covenant Partner (member) of Westminster, to schedule a time where we can get to know you and you can get to know us. Allow us to answer your questions and listen to your story. If you would like to receive more information or schedule this very informal gathering, please find our preacher right after service, email session members, or call the church office (630-896-5502) and let them know.
