Welcome to Westwood Heights Baptist Church

Join us for our services Sunday 10:00 Sunday School, 11:00 Main Service, 6:00 Evening Service and Wednesday Bible Study at 7:00


Westwood Heights Baptist Church is an Independent, Fundamental Baptist church located in Omaha Nebraska. 

Who we are: what we believe
  • We believe in one God, whose name is Jehovah, and that He exists in 3 equal but separate Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1.3-14
  • We believe that the Son became flesh, that He was fully man and fully God, that He lived a sinless life and died a substitutionary death. John 1.1-18, Romans 5.8
  • We believe that on the 3rd day, the Father raised Him from the dead, and this Jesus is the Only Begotten Son. Psalm 2.7; Acts 13.28-33
  • We believe that men, at their physical birth, are born dead in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2.1), and that men are eternally condemned unless they believe in Christ. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for all mankind: both Old and New Testament. Ephesians 2.2-7
  • We believe that this salvation is in Christ alone, through faith alone, by grace alone. Ephesians 2.8-10
  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God, is complete, is without error, and is authoritative.  II Timothy 3.16, II Peter 2.18-21

What to Expect

 Or, “here’s how to know what we’re really like”

  • We use the King James Bible, but we are not King James only
  • We use the Majesty Music Rejoice Hymnal
  • Our music is traditional and conservative in style
  • There is no dress code as such. We do ask the ministry leaders to wear neckties, and the ladies in the ministry to wear knee length skirts or dresses.  We don’t preach against women wearing pants. 
  • The preaching is expositional in presentation.  Isaiah 8.20
  • If you find it helpful, here are some of the buzz words that describe us: moderate Calvinism, Dispensationalism, Pre-tribulational Rapture, Millennial Kingdom

College World Series Mission

The series is over and the Oregon State team has taken home the 2018 trophy. More importantly however,   the Gospel was distributed to thousands of attendees. Join us in praying that the recipients will think of the cold bottles of water they received with those Gospel tracts attached and will read that Good News. We know that ultimately God will be glorified as some of those souls accept Christ through the Grace given from on high.
