About Westminster

What We Believe

Who We Are

For seven years, God has led Westminster on a remarkable journey.

Pastored by Lead Pastor Roland Slater, Executive Assistant Jamie Wilson, Worship Pastor Jonathan Wilson, and Youth Pastor Gabriella Lewis we have grown into a dynamic congregation. We are disciples who make disciples by guiding all people to follow Jesus moment by moment.

From the earliest days, God gave our church a vision of reaching the city of Enid for Christ, and God is still calling Westminster Church toward that vision. We envision a community of disciples courageously engaging culture with the hope of Jesus where we live, work, learn, and play.

At Westminster Church, the gospel compels us to live courageously and love authentically as we follow Jesus. The invitation from Jesus to follow Him is an invitation from our Maker to discover the purpose for which we’ve been created. When following Jesus, we are prepared to share the hope of Jesus.

Will you step into this journey of faith with us as we set our sights on following Jesus together?

God

There is one true God, eternally existing in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These are equal and are one God. God created the world out of nothing and by His power He sustains all He has created (Genesis 1:26, John 1:1, Ephesians 1:13-14

Jesus

Jesus was miraculously born of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:35) and became flesh and blood (John 1:1-16, John 1:29-34) without ceasing to be God. He lived a sinless life and performed many miracles to confirm His divinity. He died on the cross as a perfect sacrifice, paying the debt for our sins (Mark 10:45). On the third day after His death, He arose from the dead showing His victory over sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:3-8). He appeared to His disciples and then ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God serving as our Mediator.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son. He makes people aware of their need for Christ (John 16:8-11). He indwells and empowers the believer (1 John 4:13, Galatians 5:16-26). His presence in our life is a seal and guarantee that we are God’s children (2 Corinthians 1: 21-22). The Holy Spirit gives believers spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:7-11, Romans 12:4-8) to be used to help others.

The Church

The church is the Body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved, helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ (Ephesians 4:1-16).

Salvation

Salvation is a free gift of God. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. This salvation is available for those who put their trust in Christ as Savior (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, John 3:16). Those trusting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38).

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority in life and doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16).

The Return of Christ

Christ will one day return and judge all people. (2 Thessalonians 1:8-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) Believers will be welcomed into God’s presence in heaven. Unbelievers will be in hell, separated from God’s presence.

Who We Are

Our Core Values

Worship

At Westminster, you will find a worship experience that will take you into the very presence of God. Our worship is energetic, dynamic, contemporary, and casual. We worship an audience of One: Jesus Christ!

Fellowship

Fellowship at Westminster is an outgrowth of our relationship with our God. As we grow in Christ, we grow in healthy relationships with each other. All fellowship events at Westminster are designed to encourage, mentoring, and offer care to those within and outside the walls of the church.

Discipleship

As people become believers in Christ, growing in Christ is essential. At Westminster we have many areas of discipleship: children, youth, young adult, older adult, and small groups. All of our effort in discipleship is to grow up in our faith.
