OUR BELIEFS

WE’RE COMMITTED TO THREE ESSENTIALS

ENCOUNTERING GOD

We encounter God in a very personal way through our weekend services. When we come together, everything focuses on getting to know Jesus better through His Word and expressing our love for Him through music, prayer, communion, and the arts.

ENCOURAGING EACH OTHER

When we center our attention on our relationship with God, we discover authentic community with each other. We encourage each other through loving actions and using the unique abilities God gives us to serve others. God actually went so far as to define Himself as “love” — not the mushy love popularized in the media, but the kind that really cares, forgives, makes sacrifices, and reaches out to people. Here at ENCOUNTER we meet in community groups so we can get to know each other beneath the surface and extend this love to each other.

ENGAGING THE WORLD

As Christ followers, our focus turns outward to a world of people who really need what God offers. So, we intentionally share the love of God with people who have never come into a relationship with Him. We invite others to join us. We serve those who are hurting or in need. In our church. At our work. In our schools. Around our neighborhoods. We are a part of what God is doing globally to relieve suffering and hopelessness and bring the gospel to those who have never heard. We describe all of this as engaging the world.
