God desires a whole-life commitment from this generation — a commitment to be tomorrow’s leaders, aware of their purpose and determined to change the world. Preparing our students for lives of purpose is central to Westside’s mission.
We recognize that it’s not enough to just fill our students’ heads with knowledge or promote good deeds. We need God to transform our students from the inside out in all they know, all they feel, and all they do. We want them to be equipped and inspired to offer themselves and their gifts and talents back to God as an act of worship for the sake of others.
ROMANS 12: 1-2 (MSG)
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life — your sleeping, eating, going-to-work,
and walking-around life — and place it before God as an offering.
Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it
without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.
You’ll be changed from the inside out.
