What's Going On This Week:




Dear Friend:

Thank you for exploring Westminster By-The-Sea through its Website.  Westminster is a church chartered in 1955 by the St. John’s Presbytery and has provided Christian witness to the South Peninsula and beyond since that time.  It is an honor to have you inquire about the church.  Three ordained ministers join with a dedicated staff and willing volunteers to provide for the Administration, Christian Education, Congregational Life, Operations, Outreach, and Worship divisions of church life. 

In short, here is what we believe:

  - That the worship of God Almighty, Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, is the hub of the wheel of the church.  All that we do is inspired by what we offer God in worship and what God commissions us to do in the name of Jesus.  We stand with Soren Kierkegaard in believing that in the great drama of worship, those in the congregation are actors, the pastors and choirs are the directors, and God is the audience.

– That Jesus is Lord and Savior of the world; and that the Bible is the Word of God. 

– That the church carries out two sacred acts that Jesus commanded his followers to do until he comes again: the Sacrament of Baptism and the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  In short, as our Vision statement says: we strive to be “a caring community, inspired by God, extending the hand of Christian fellowship to all, making disciples, and shining the light of Christ in our community and world; a church for all ages, honoring both old traditions, and personal walks with God.”  Come to Westminster when you are in the area.  The white colonial “church that looks like a church” will attract you to visit.  We hope and believe that the people will make you long to return. 

Faithfully yours,  Jeffrey A. Sumner, Minister
