Why West Haven
Why does West Haven need a church?
West Haven’s population is just over 13000 and it is estimated that the population will double in the next several years. It is estimated that there are less than 4% evangelicals in Weber County which encompasses West Haven. As the population begins to double, we see a great need for gospel-centered churches in West Haven.
West Haven is a young community and is seeking her own identity separate from that of Ogden and Layton, UT. With this comes the possibility of shaking the cultural norm in order for the gospel to have an impact on a growing and seeking community.
We have found that West Haven has a closed mentality when it comes to those living outside of her borders. With a closed or protective nature of the community it will be paramount that we live, work, learn, and play with and within West Haven. It is necessary that we seek West Haven’s welfare and plant our lives in West Haven for her benefit as the years roll by and for God’s glory. In order to be God glorifying, is it necessary that we seek after Christ while also attempting to benefit the welfare of West Haven by planting our lives in the community.
