Vision and Values

According to the New Testament, the early Church was, at its best, a family that cares for one another (Acts 2:43-47).

At West End Baptist, we strive to model that same concern for each other and for the people of Halifax.

As followers of Jesus, it is our goal to tell and live out the good news of God’s love, grace, and forgiveness. More details on our beliefs can be found at http://baptist-atlantic.ca/our-convention/our-beliefs/.
