    This week we will take a look at how ‘Making Jesus Known’ is not just the mission statement of Westside, but the purpose and mission for all of humanity and even God himself. We’ll see how the plan of God from before the world began was to reveal himself through Christ, and how we can more faithfully engage in the mission of ‘making him known’.

What would it look like for disciples of Jesus to be aligned with the heart of God in our time and place? How can we make sure that the values at the centre of God's heart are the same ones at the centre of our lives?

    Text: John 17:14-16

    In part 1 of this series, we will unpack John 17 by looking at following Jesus. What does it mean to follow Jesus. Put another way, we’re answering the question, “If I follow Jesus, what should I expect?” “Based on the life and teaching of Jesus, what sort of life does He call his followers to?” Is it a giant list of do’s and don’ts, is it easy, or comfortable, make your life better, awesome, terrible, or something different altogether? What should mark us as citizens of the Kingdom of God living in Vancouver?

  • How do I know God loves me?
    Watch Romans 11:11-24
    August 05, 2018
    “I know that God loves me because ...” - We may naturally answer this question based on our performance, success, health or a myriad of different ways. But is there a more solid ground for our hope that we are loved by God? 1 John teaches that the answer is a resounding YES. Specifically, we know that we are loved by God through God the Son, Jesus, manifesting the love of God through his life and, supremely, through His death on the cross in our place. God’s love has been clearly manifested through Jesus, and as this love grounds and transforms our hearts, we love others with a self-sacrificial, humble love as a response. And as we love one another as we have been loved, we reveal God’s love for those around us who desperately need it. In so doing, we make Jesus Known.

    The greatness of the prophet Elijah is without debate; few were more committed to the glory of God than he. However, even Elijah was prone to fear, anger and despondency. This sermon investigates how the restoration of Elijah from places like those takes place and what we can learn from it.

    Speaker: Josh Dool

    Throughout the New Testament we encounter descriptions that depict the Christian Church as being The Body of Christ, and we see many instances where instructions and commands are not directed toward the individual, but rather the community. This week we look at the origin, design, plan behinds God’s structuring of this community, and we encounter the purpose and mission of God in uniting Christians together in this way.

  • The Love of God
    Watch Romans 11:11-24
    March 23, 2014
    Speaker: Matt Menzel
    Date: Mar 23 2014
    Text: John 1:1-18, Philippians 2:1-11

    Volumes have been written on humanity's need and desire to feel loved. Love motivates us, terrifies us, and can paralyze us. In a world like this the truth that 'God loves you' often falls on deaf ears. What does that even mean? How can we know that His love is for real? As we move toward the Easter season and the celebration of Jesus' resurrection we need to first pause and consider the fullest manifestation of God's love to us: the incarnation.
