WHO WE ARE
We are a group of Christ-Followers that are focused on living lives as closely as we can to Jesus. We are a non-denominational, completely self-sufficient community that teaches Biblical principles of grace, mercy, love, and community service. If you are intimidated or uncomfortable in traditional churches and desire genuine worship and community, this might be a great chance for you to experience a true and authentic encounter with God.
We believe that all worship begins and ends in a genuine encounter with the person and completed work of Jesus Christ. Salvation is not just found in one or two scriptures, but through a personal walk and relationship with Jesus. We are a community dedicated to Christ's saving grace, constant repentance, baptism as a symbol and public profession of Christ's work, the indwelling & empowering of the Holy Spirit (the fruit and gifts), and the marriage of faith and works as the evidence of genuine salvation. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, the Bible as the inspired word of God, and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that as Christ-followers we are strongest when we are pursuing Christ with other people. If we attempt to live the Christian life apart from intimate and genuine friendship and fellowship, we are more vulnerable to Spiritual attack and prone to deception. Authentic community only happens when we give each other permission to be honest without fear of rejection.
We strongly believe in showing Christ's love through giving generously to our community. We believe Jesus has called His church to clothe, feed, & care for those who are in need., 20% of every dollar given to our church is given back into College Grove through projects that directly benefit those in need in our community through various ministries and non-profits. We are committed to continuing this model of benevolence and community service in College Grove as God continues to open doors for us to show the love of Jesus through ministries of compassion and service.
