Many ways to get connected

APOLOGIA

A Forum On Bible & Culture.

We are living in the days described in Isaiah 5, where good is called evil and evil is called good. And now is the time for the Church of Jesus Christ to raise up in defense of Biblical Truth!

Westgate Chapel hosts a Sunday evening event series where nationally recognized expert voices are brought in to inform and equip the local Christian community on topics where culture and biblical values intersect.

華語聚會

西門教會華語團契( Westgate Chapel, Chinese Fellowship, 簡稱WGCCF),它的前身是成立於1993年的)西雅圖神的教會(Seattle Church Assembly)。成員大部分來自中國大陸,也有些來自香港和台灣地區,我們教會的主要語言是國語。我們愛慕神的話語,並追求在聖靈裡的合一,我們更願與所有傾心愛主的人一同敬拜讚美 (與服事)神。 因著這樣的看見,順著聖靈賜給孫名昌牧師與教會同工們合一的異象,於2021年十月十七與美國多數族裔為主體的西門教會正式合併。讚美神的奇妙,感謝主的預備!這應驗了神早在90年代就給西門教會的一個應許-為了讓福音傳遍地極,得救的人數添滿,而建立萬國教會。西門教會常年定期差派宣教士去世界各地長宣和短宣。教會近十四位牧師中不少都曾經有這樣的宣教經歷。信實的神更為西門教會華語團契預備了一批生在美國,卻心系中華的赴華宣教士,他們效法主耶穌,為了福音與救恩,捨己愛人。不僅帶著自己的孩子們去,而且把那裡的孤兒們帶回來,給他們一個溫暖的家,更培養他們成為福音薪火傳承的新一代。

Encore

Encore, the Senior Adult Ministry at Westgate Chapel, seeks to honor God and facilitate an abundant life in this sometimes-challenging season. We believe that God’s plans and adventures don’t stop because we have reached a certain age. We provide opportunities for those 60 and above to grow spiritually, care for and connect with one another, share gifts and talents, and to have fun! The certain promises of God to His people are that He is always at work in and through us.

Missions

Westgate Chapel’s rich history of partnering with the Holy Spirit has led us into God’s mission to reach the least, the last, and the lost. As an outflow of Westgate’s DNA, we have sent individuals, teams, and families out to the nations for over 60 years. We continue to reach the unreached, partner with local believers overseas, and carry the Kingdom to the ends of the earth as we partner with God to build His church in the world.

Jesus is Doing One Thing in the Earth: Building His Church!

School of Ministry

We exist to walk alongside men and women who are ready to step into their education and a transformative relationship with Christ. Before the foundation of the world, each person was given a destiny. All were created for His purpose. This purpose requires a process. Our mission is to embrace this process: where each individual is formed to God’s image. Fired. Hammered. Molded. Stretched. Tempered.

Worship

Our heart cry is, “If Your Presence doesn’t go with us, do not send us up from here.” (Exodus 33:15)

God has called Westgate Worship to bring Him glory through song and the ushering in of His presence. Our hope is for every individual to have an encounter in worship that touches the heart and opens the eyes to the goodness of God. Each time we gather corporately, we pray the will and purposes of Heaven be done in us and in our region. For in His presence true life, joy, and freedom are found

This is a place for us to come together as a community and learn how to thrive in our walks with Jesus and our relationships with others. Life looks different for each of us, but as a community of Jesus’ followers, we get to walk this journey of discovery together while passionately pursuing Jesus through the power of His Holy Spirit. As we learn to live out a naturally supernatural lifestyle, we desire to become an encounter to the world around us and make an impact on our world for Him.
