Westside Christian Church began as the product of a church split. That's not something we're proud of, but it is a fact of our existence that we have learned from and hope to move beyond. Just as Jesus forgives us individually we believe that a church can be forgiven. And in that forgiveness we believe in the opportunity for new life and new growth. And God has blessed us because of our desire to follow and obey.
In 1977 the charter members began to recruit and gather together what would become the new church, Westside Church of Christ. They were an awesome group of people with a heart for the gospel and the church began to grow rapidly. They originally met in the home of one of the members as a house church but quickly outgrew being a house church. They began to look towards the future and imagine what God could do in Jonesborough through them.
