About Westside

On Your First Visit

The congregation at Westside is a loving, multi-ethnic, body of Christian brothers and sisters who seek to reach out to others in Gwinnett County with the love of Jesus Christ.

You will find Bible study classes for all ages! We have classes for men, women, couples, teenagers, young adults, and children.

Our worship style could best be described as “blended” but overall the services are Spirit-led and genuine. You will feel the freedom to worship God through congregational singing and be inspired by Scripturally-based messages from our Lead Pastor.

Don’t forget to stop by our Guest Reception room before you leave Westside for the day! Otherwise known as “The Cookie Room”, it is a great place to meet with a staff person and talk or ask questions for a few minutes. We have a special gift bag just for you for attending worship with us!


Westside is located at 2925 Main Street W. on US Hwy. 78 in the heart of Snellville, just 1 mile west of the Hwy 124 Intersection at the corner of Hwy 78 and McGee Road across the street from the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market.

Our Mission:

At Westside our mission is to faithfully imitate Jesus by fulfilling the Great Commission with our neighbors, all nations, and all generations.

Core Beliefs

Westside Baptist Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention that unapologetically lifts up and proclaim the name of Jesus as Lord. Seeking to influence both our community and our world, we exist to fulfill both the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40). Our core beliefs are…

– The Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God, over us in authority and teaching us God’s truth
– The Trinity–One God, eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
– Jesus as God’s one and only begotten son, born of a virgin, fully God and yet fully human
– Jesus as God’s Messiah, His explicit atoning death for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and ascension
– Salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ alone
– The sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, enabling a believer to live holy
– The triumphant and imminent Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Our Core Values are:

We desire Christ-centered worship.
We build bridges into our community for the gospel.
We encourage relationships with one another in small groups.
We develop character and maturity through obedience to the Scripture.
We strive to meet the church and community’s needs with loving acts of service.
