The Westview Logo
Westview Christian Church strives to follow the simple precedents and practices of the Church as it was led by the Apostles and faithfully recorded in the New Testament. The symbols in our logo represent the values exemplified by the very first church, as described in Acts 2:42, where it is recorded,
"they devoted themselves..."
...to the Apostles teaching... An open book symbolizes the Bible. We believe the Old and New Testament scriptures are the uniquely inspired Word of God. The Greek letters, Alpha and Omega, remind us that Jesus Christ, the Divine Son of God, is "the author and finisher" of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), and the focal point and central message of all scripture.
"...to the fellowship..." As members of the church, together we believe we are called to share and care for one another. Like a circle of chain, we are each individuals with various gifts, abilities and resources, linked together for the building up of the church body in unity and maturity (Ephesians 4:11-12).
"...to the breaking of bread..." The loaf and the cup speak to the integral place of the Lord's Supper in our worship. In the Lord's Supper, we commemorate His death, we commune with Him in celebration of His living presence, and we proclaim His death in the light of His resurrection until He comes again (1 Corinthians 10:16).
"...to prayer." Upwardly raised hands speak to our belief in the power of God working in response to prayer. As the early believers prayed often and instinctively, we seek to do the same, both individually and corporately, as the church. By prayer, we seek to align our wills to the greater will of God (Philippians 4:6-7).
