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
  • 3343 Pedersen Drive, Omaha, NE, United States
 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
Our services are streamed on YouTube

Dear Church Family,
Public services resume on Wednesday, May 6. Here are the guidelines provided by Governor Ricketts:
  • Places of worship will have relaxed DHM requirements statewide beginning on May 4th.
  • They will need to ensure six feet of separation between different household units.
  • It will not be permissible to pass items among worshippers.
With those guidelines in mind, through MAY 31,  we will:
  1. Meet in the Multipurpose Building for all services. This will enable us to provide more room to maintain social distances.
  2. Have services on Sunday at 11.00 and 6.00
  3. Have service Wednesday at 7.00
We will not:
  1. Have Sunday School at 10.00
  2. Serve food before or after any service
  3. Serve the Lord’s Supper
  4. Pass the offering plate. 
  5. Have prayer time at the end of Wednesday services
  6. Have Pee Wee Patch or Patch Club (Patch will possibly meet in the summer)
We need to discuss (and will do this Wednesday May 6)
  1. The possibility of nursery and a class for younger children during the 11:00 service
  2. The governor’s directive wants “household units” to be the only people closer than 6’
  3. What to do about choir
We will continue to stream services on the Facebook Live page

Thanks for your prayers and your support. See you May 6,



UPDATE April 26 2020
We will resume meeting at church Wednesday May 6! Until then Sunday AM services will be live streamed on the church Facebook Page through May 3
We also have Wednesday services at 7 P M on the Facebook page

Dear Church family,
We all find ourselves impacted by the outbreak of Covid 19. The CDC, Governor of Nebraska and Mayor of Omaha have all limited the size of public meetings to a maximum of 10 people, and we want to be wise in our response to those directives, as well as the virus itself. Both the potential harm of the virus (serious physical illness) and the public response (emotional, social, and economic stress) requires us to navigate some challenging paths:
  • How do we honor human authority (I Peter 2.13-17), and honor God’s authority over His Church (Hebrews 10.24-25)?
  • How do we do all things for the glory of God (I Corinthians 10.1-33), and do that which is honest in the sight of men (II Corinthians 8.21, Romans 12.17)
  • How do we walk by faith, without fear (Psalm 46.1-2), and yet be prudent and not tempt the Lord (Matthew 4.5-7)?
  • How do we wisely care for our physical health, but not ignore our spiritual health (I Peter 5.1-3)?
We (deacons and pastor) have decided that it is proper for us to submit, not only to the “letter of the law,” but to what we perceive to be the spirit of that law.   Since things are moving so rapidly, we’re going to make decisions weekly.
  • There will be no Midweek service on March 18 or 25
  • We are working to put in place livestreaming capabilities , but there will not be any public services on Sunday, March 22
  • No volleyball or basketball
This is an excellent time for us to consider what Christianity might look like in America if we found ourselves having to meet outside of what is normal for us.  It is a time of testing our faith, and it is most certainly not a time to abandon the exercise of that faith.   Let me encourage you to:
  • Be faithful in reading the Scripture
  • Pray for revival and for mercy
  • Help and encourage others as you have opportunity (Galatians 6.10)
  • Take time to think. Psalm 143:5 “I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.”
  • Don’t be afraid of any (physical, emotional, economic) outcome of this situation. Philippians 4.6-7.  God is always in complete control of all things
God bless, and I hope to see you soon,
Pastor Largent
