For more than 2,000 years, followers of Jesus have been stirred and transformed by the promises that His grace is greater than the gravity of the life we face every day. People all around us are feeling the heaviness of living in a post-pandemic world. They are asking how to respond to conflict and wars in their neighborhoods, communities and across the globe. Individuals and families are facing and ever-changing economy, as well as physical and mental health challenges.
For nearly six decades, Christ Church has been the hands and feet of Jesus, bringing His hope, healing and love to people in the communities we call home and abroad. We believe God is calling us to an exciting vision that will LIFT our faith, raise up children and families, expand our missions impact, elevate the quality of our two campuses, raise up our future ministry capacity and undergird our core ministries and mission.
Our primary goal is for everyone who calls Christ Church their home to engage deeply with God–asking how He might want them to grow in how they living out their faith, opening their time, talents and treasure and then following where He leads. This is a journey we will embark on prayerfully together and individually trusting God to deepen our faith, and discipleship.
Our secondary goal is to pursue the vision God has given us to care better for our kids and families, broaden our missions impact, improve our campus quality, open future capacity, and support our core ministries. We want to see the LIFT of God’s grace in the lives of people here, near and far, in a way that draws them closer to His great name.
