Welcome to DOVE Westgate Church!
DOVE Westgate Church is part of a network of churches called DOVE International, with churches
in six continents and hundreds of locations across
the world. "DOVE" is an acronym for "Declaring Our Victory Emmanuel", meaning that we celebrate our victory with our God who dwells within us.
We are a non-denominational, small group-based
family of churches who want to see God touching
lives here, and around the world.

and how the movement began, check out their

We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible,
and authoritative Word of God. The Holy Spirit moved upon the writers of the Old and New Testament and inspired them as they wrote the Words of God.
We Believe there is One God, eternally existent
in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father – Creator of all things.
By His Word all things were created and
through the power of His Word all things are
held together. He sent His Son Jesus to
redeem mankind unto Himself.
Jesus Christ - the only begotten Son of God,
conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin.
He lived a sinless life, and performed many
miracles. He redeemed us by His atoning death through His shed blood. He ascended to the right
hand of the Father, and He will personally return
in power and glory. There is no other name given
under heaven by which man must be saved.
Holy Spirit – inspired the writers of the Bible,
convicts the world of sin, teaches us all things,
and brings to our remembrance the Word of God.
We Believe in the total inability of man
to save himself and is in need of a Savior.
Mankind can only be saved through a complete commitment of himself or herself to Jesus Christ
as Savior and Lord with that one then being regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We Believe in the present infilling of the Holy Spirit
to all believers who desire it. The Holy Spirit’s ministry to the body of Jesus Christ is power to live and witness and to go forth to proclaim the gospel and to make disciples. Power for us to cultivate a Christ-like character through the Fruit of the Spirit and to
build up and to mature the church through the
miraculous gifts and ministries in this present day.
We Believe in the church as a body of believers
brought together by the Holy Spirit as a visible
part of the body of Christ, who faithfully proclaim
the whole Word of God, properly administer
the sacraments, and humbly submit themselves
to discipline, all for the glory of God.
We Believe every man and woman shall give
an account of all their deeds in this earthly life
before the judgment seat of Christ. Those found
with their names in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be
with God in His glory, those without their names
written will be eternally separated from God.
We believe the Church exists to worship God individually, in small groups, and in corporate
We believe that in partnership with the Holy Spirit,
we can help people mature in their relationship
with Christ and fulfill God's purposes for their lives.
We believe God's love compels us to impact
people's lives with the message of the Gospel,
at home and around the world.
We believe developing healthy, loving relationships
with other Christians individually, in small groups
and corporately, are essential for people to fully experience a vibrant Christian life.
We believe all Christians are to model the life
of Christ by serving others.
We believe that God calls us to generously give
of our time, talents, and resources, thus releasing
God's blessings and furthering the work of the
We believe that prayer is foundational in knowing
God, essential in accomplishing God’s purpose,
and powerful in changing the destinies of men
