A Message from Pastor Paul

Hello, and welcome to WestPointe Church.  We are glad you took the time to visit our website!  This is a great place to start.  Here you can find information about our beliefs, values, staff, and ministries.  I could tell you all about the great things happening at WestPointe Church from our exciting services to all of our different ministries during the week. However, the best way for you to know what WestPointe is like is to experience a service for yourself! When you visit, I would love to meet you in person! I look forward to seeing you soon!
