About The Church at West Creek

We exist to exalt Christ in all of life. With the Spirit in us, God's Word to guide us, and each other alongside us, we want to know and follow Christ in the world.

By God's grace, we want to have not just sound biblical beliefs. We want to live sound biblical lives.

Our approach to ministry prioritizes the real and non-ignorable Jesus, the living and active Word, the abiding Spirit, the simple and ordinary means of grace, and deep and diverse relationships for community and mission.

We have a wide range of ages in our church and we are more ethnically diverse than our surrounding community.
