Westside Baptist Church, in conjunction with the Billy Graham nationwide evangelistic campaign, “My Hope America,” and along with 22,000 other churches in America, is making revival plans to reach out to unsaved neighbors and loved ones with our only true hope: the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Over the past 12 years, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has organized My Hope events in 57 nations bringing millions to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Now is America’s time! Bro. James Berryhill will be bringing the timely messages.
