About Church Alive

What we believe, our core values & leadership team.

Who We Are

At Church Alive, you’ll find a group of people who come together with different backgrounds and experiences to worship Jesus and allow Him to speak to us through relevant, inspired teaching. We are all at different places spiritually, so connecting with each other is important for all of us. Whether you’re attending church for the very first time, are a life-long Christian, or somewhere in between, there’s a place for you here!

Don’t worry about how you’re dressed or where you come from. We are casual people who have an uncasual love for Jesus! We look forward to seeing you.

What We Believe

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God:

There is one true God, manifested to man as Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

Man’s redemption is made possible only by faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. This salvation comes by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth Jesus as Lord:

Baptism in water is a declaration to the world that a believer has died with Christ and that they have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life:

Our Vision

To create a “family atmosphere” as well as meet the needs of the family. The ministry of the Word to parents, couples, singles, youth and children reinforces the value of family.
To equip believers “to do the works of the ministry.”

This will be accomplished through teaching and training.

To offer a place of healing and restoration to those who are dealing with emotional or physical problems as well as substance abuse. We endeavor to provide the atmosphere and support for this to be accomplished.
To do our part to tear down the walls of racism and denominationalism that create division and disharmony in the Body of Christ.

To make a difference in our local community and the world by sowing the life-changing message of the Gospel throughout the earth. We accept the Great Commission as a commandment of Jesus Christ.
