<Welcome to the Westport Baptist Church located in Westport, Indiana - What We Believe

Getting To Know Jesus

It is our desire as a church that everyone will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Here are the basic steps to salvation in Jesus Christ. If you would like to speak to someone about becoming a Christian, please contact our pastor or any member of the congregation and they will be happy to pray with you and encourage you in your faith journey.

God loves YOU and it is His desire that you be saved. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

The penalty for our sin is death. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

God paid the penalty for your sin through the death of Jesus on the cross. “But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

If we repent (turn away) from our sins, and confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from our sins and spend eternity with Him! “For whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13“…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
