To Love God...
Truly loving God requires us to engage our heart as well as our head. Jesus said that loving God with all our heart, soul and mind was to be our first priority. Our combined ministries are aimed at providing opportunities to connect with God and grow in our love for Him.
When we truly love God, we are enabled to love people. Jesus said this was our second priority. Our aim is to provide an atmosphere of love and acceptance. Our care goes beyond the organized services of the week to include the concerns of daily life.
...and Make Disciples
It isn't enough to know about God or even to know Him. Our love is brought to fullness when we follow Him. We are dedicated to leading people into a life of Word, prayer and deed so we will be imitators of Jesus.
We are continually becoming a church that is more:
World Mission focused
Our local church was organized in 1958 by a small group of Free Methodist people in the greater Flint area. They brought a vision to see a church established which would serve the growing northwest area of Flint. This group of pioneers first met in the Westwood Heights Elementary School. In 1963, the first service was held in the present facility. Our ministries are continually evaluated and reshaped in response to the changing needs of our community.
Westwood Heights Church is a ministry of The Free Methodist Church of North America. As Free Methodists, we are people of the Word of God and the Spirit of God. The Bible is our final authority and we experience the risen Jesus through the Holy Spirit. We have a rich history of concern for those in need and recognize that the best thing we can do for people is to introduce them to Jesus Christ and invite them into a life-changing relationship with Him! He is the Son of God who came to restore our broken relationship with Him and enable us to heal our relationships with other people.
