In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul emphasizes the church's important role of equipping people to do the work that God is calling each of us to. The purpose of EQUIP is to inspire our church to effectively serve one another and the world around us with the spiritual gifts, abilities, passions and personalities that God has given to us.

Our desire is that the EQUIP area of our ministry strategy would see Westlife Church provide practical tools to help people serve the church and serve on mission wherever God has placed them.

“…to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…”
Ephesians 4:12
