At Westover Hills Church, our mission is simple — we want everyone to know Jesus and accept him as Lord and Savior. When a person accepts Christ as Lord and Savior and starts a new life, we call that Making New.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!2 Corinthians 5:17
When Christ-followers put God at the center of their lives and seek a strong relationship with Him, we call that Making Great. We are a church where everyone is invited to seek and experience Making New and Making Great moments in their lives.
The Assemblies of God (AG) was founded in 1914 in Hot Springs, Arkansas with 300 people at the founding convention. Today there are 13,004 churches in the U.S. with more than 3 million members and adherents and more than 69 million Assemblies of God members worldwide, making the AG the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination.
As part of the AG, we subscribe to the 16 doctrines established two years after its founding. These doctrines became our Statement of Fundamental Truths. Four of these truths are considered our core beliefs due to the key role they play in reaching the lost and building the believer and the church: Salvation, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing and The Second Coming of Christ.
Pastor Mark served as one of Westover Hills’ first pastors in the mid-1990s. In 2002, his ministry took him elsewhere, but he returned in 2010. His top priorities in life are his relationship with Christ, his family — wife Ana, son Ethan, daughter Yasmin — and ministry.
