Our Mission

To invite people into God's larger story as we follow Christ together.

Our Vision

Transformed and empowered by the Holy Spirit, WHPC will be a Christ-centered community of faith that intentionally nurtures relationships with God, one another, our neighbors in Austin and the world.

Our History

Since our beginning as a two room school/church house in 1874, Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church has been a place of grace and influence in the Westlake Hills community and throughout the city of Austin, TX. As our community has faced an array of challenges, WHPC has been, and will continue to be, a place where our own church family and our family throughout the community can find hope and help. We are proud and grateful to partner with, and serve alongside, some amazing organizations who are sharing the love of Christ by providing real solutions to homelessness, poverty, hunger and human trafficking in our community and around the world. The WHPC family is a mix of young, old, working, retired, Republicans, Democrats, activists, contemplative types, life-long Austinites and transplants from all over the world, business owners and those on supplemental food assistance—all part of God’s amazing story in this place we call home.
