What is an independent, Baptist Church?
An independent Baptist church is exactly what it says. It is a church that is free to think on its own about doctrine and methods of church ministry. We here at Westwood Baptist Church are independently free to support missionaries of our choosing, free to choose curriculum for Bible Study, and programs for our church family. We are also a Fundamental Baptist church. This means we hold to the fundamentals of the faith. The virgin birth, perfect life, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus, the Son of God. We hold to the Word of God as a Book without error. We believe here at Westwood Baptist Church, that the King James Version is the word of God; therefore, we use only the KJV in our preaching, teaching, and study. We hold to the belief that music is very important in worship. We enjoy music that lifts the soul and creates life in the service and we choose to be conservative in our worship songs and hymns, tracks, and programs. We hold true to the Baptist faith and preach it without apology. We are not Calvinistic, nor do we agree with the so-called “Baptist-Brider” doctrine. We are pre-millennial in our teaching and we believe that salvation is for everyone! If you would like more information on “what is an independent Baptist church”, please contact us.
