Worship on the Lord’s Day is central to the life of the church. Our worship is Christ-centered and Word-centered. There is an emphasis on the reading, preaching, and responding to God’s Word. Our worship is regulated by God’s Word. Our worship is reverential and joyful, with robust singing of psalms and hymns.
Westminster is a church that believes the bible proclaims a message of good news in Jesus Christ! The bible is the inspired Word of God, the truths of which were rediscovered at the Reformation. We believe an excellent summary of what the bible teaches is the Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the Larger Catechism, and Shorter Catechism.
Westminster is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America.
It is important to have godly men who will shepherd God's people. See our elders and deacons. There are also two pastors:
Pastor Dykes came to Westminster at the beginning of 2021. Entering the ministry in 2013, he previously served at Presbyterian churches in Cardiff (Wales) and Charlotte NC.
He was born and raised in Scotland, spent many years in Wales, and relocated to the USA in 2017. He is married to Ashley and they have two children. Pastor Dykes earned a BSc Honors in Wales, and a MDiv at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Greenville SC. He enjoys chocolate, reading, the outdoors, “soccer”, and golf.
Pastor Warhurst has served at Westminster since 2002. He has been married to his wife Susan since 1992. They have eight children and live on a four acre homestead. Steven loves to teach the Bible and the Great Books of Western Civilization. He enjoys reading, chopping firewood, and hunting. When he grows up he wants to be a cattle farmer.
We are eager to support the training of men for the ministry. We also want to be a people who go to the nations as Jesus Christ taught in the Great Commission. This is why we prize supporting seminaries and missionaries in the USA and throughout the world.
