Whether you've attended church your whole life or never stepped foot in one before, we know it's not easy visiting a church for the first time. You'r not quite sure what to expect. You probably have a lot of questions. What does a weekend service look like? How should I dress? What are the messages like? What's your music like?
How should I dress?
Westport Bible Church is a "come as you are" church. We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and we want you to be more focused on Who you're worshiping than what you're wearing. Some people put on their "Sunday best" while others prefer to dress casual, and that's fine too!
What are the messages like?
The most important thing we could say is, we aim to teach the Bible in a way that is engaging, understandable, and applicable. Transformation is inseparable from application, so you will find the teaching here always ends in "how does this truth challenge, encourage, or guide me right where I am?" Most messages are biblical exposition; that is, a verse-by-verse study of God's Word, a "balanced diet" of the whole counsel of God. In addition, our focus is on God's Word, not the preacher.
What about the music?
Music and singing is just one of the many ways that we worship. We want to honor God in everything we do and that includes our music. We strive to uplift the name of Christ without compromising ourselves by seeking a "secular" feel. That being said, at WBC, we sing historic hymns and many new worship songs.
Will I be asked to give money?
No. If you are a guest, please do not feel any obligation to give. We want our services to be a gift to you. We believe giving is an act of worship for those who have a personal relationship with God through Christ.
