On September 5, 1993, a wonderful event took place in Danville, Virginia. Two churches (Southall Baptist and Lynn Haven Baptist) joined together to form Westover Baptist Church. This merger included 235 charter members. Dr. Doug Barber, pastor of Southall Baptist, became the senior pastor and Rev. Robert Vermillion, pastor of Lynn Haven Baptist became the co-pastor. Thus began the history of an exciting ministry. Many special activities have taken place since that time to continue this spirit of unity.
Westover Baptist Church is a Bible-believing, conservative and evangelical church. Priorities include worship, Bible teaching, evangelism, and missions.
Our Basic doctrines are: † The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.
† There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Man, an eternal soul and spirit, is created in the image of God.
† Jesus Christ was God in flesh. He was virgin born, lived a sinless life, and performed many miracles. He died for the sins of the whole world, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended to the Father, where He is currently interceding for believers.
† Salvation is by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. It is secure through the finished work of Christ. He will remove believers before the tribulation and return seven years later to establish His kingdom on earth.
† Believers are to follow the Lord in baptism by immersion.
† The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity. His ministry includes convicting, teaching, comforting, and guiding believers. Every born-again believer has experienced the baptism of the Spirit.
† There is a resurrection of both the saved and the lost: the saved unto a resurrection of eternal life with Christ, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation in hell.
