Thank you for taking the time to find out more about West Portland Baptist Church and our community. West Portland Baptist Church was established in Westfield, NY in 1842. We hope that after you look through our website and attend a worship service, you will consider becoming a more active part of our growing community of faith.
Led by Charlie Robertson, Lead Pastor, West Portland Baptist Church offers many ministries for people of all ages and walks of life who are looking to strengthen their relationship with Christ. We offer ministries in  Sunday School for all ages, Worship, Summer Vacation Bible School, Women’s Ministry, Food Pantry, and Youth Ministry.

What We Believe

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His coming for those that are His at the Rapture and His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. This is the ‘born again’ experience by faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We look forward to taking the journey with you!

Financial Policy

With the exception of our huge debt to our Lord Jesus Christ, we are a debt-free church. It is our belief that as God directs, He provides. We know that if we will live by faith and be faithful in our giving, God will continue to bless His ministry.
We believe the church is God’s divinely-appointed vessel of ministry. We are not in the business of raising money; instead we stand as a faith ministry which allows the faithful to keep their Christian commandment to give of their tithes and offerings as the Lord has blessed them.
We have envelopes for giving and we encourage everyone to use them. As an independent church, we operate on a congregation-approved budget and suggest that your giving be designated to the General Fund. As other needs arise, individuals may choose to designate funds to those areas.
We take a regular offering only on Sunday mornings. We also believe that true giving comes from the heart and must include not only our tithe, but also our time and talents.
