Excavate the Truth

Grab your pickaxe and shovel!

VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where discovery awaits at Destination Dig. Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

Our Beliefs

About The Holy Bible

The scriptures of the Holy Bible were written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.


About The Trinity

God is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.


About The Father

God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.


About The Son

Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.


About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.


About Man

Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.


About Salvation

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.


About The Church

The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.


About Baptism

We believe that Christian Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.


About The Lord’s Supper

We believe that The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

Church Members Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior.

And on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

We do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love;

To strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship ordinance, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances;

To walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment;

To avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger;

To abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in Christian love;

To remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech;

To be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we are remove from this place we will, as soon as possible , unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

Our History

In 1962, Reverend Orbie G. Estep Sr. and Reverend William Pressnell started a mission from Springfield Missionary Baptist Church. The mission was located at 1601 West Main Street. These men, compelled to call under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, after only three months, formally organized this mission into a separate church. These men of God were led to call it Westside Missionary Baptist Church. The Holy Spirit continued to bless and guide leading to the purchase, one year later, of the property at 3504 Dayton Springfield road. It had been previously known as the “Old Boone Station School.” Under continuing leadership of the Holy Spirit, the church was remodeled into an appropriate house of worship and the congregation began to grow. Westside Missionary Baptist Church became a haven for the lost as more and more people came to hear the Gospel preached in such a loving way as to immolate so effectively the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior. The church’s most unique characteristic was voiced by many who came through the doors. “As I entered into the church, I felt the love of God within these walls.”


Over the years, the church has had several pastors. These men of God include:

-Reverend Orbie G. Estep, Sr., Co-founder and first Pastor
-Reverend John T. Coleman
-Reverend Clyde Cavins
-Reverend Orbie G. Estep, Jr.
-Reverend Kirk Ross Temporary Pastor

In July 1989, the congregation had exceeded the capacity of the building on Dayton-Springfield Road. The building, being land-locked, was unsuitable to fit the growing congregation’s needs. This situation led to the purchase of the current location. With the new location came a new name. The name properly reflects that which people have felt touch them over these many years. It was that which forgives their sins. It was that which gave them comfort in their time of need.. it was “GRACE.”

In 2020 we outgrew our church building once again. This time building a brand new church building from the ground up with room to grow.
