Feels Like Home

Fred Pic.jpg

We are so glad you are checking us out. Trying out a new place to visit raises questions. “What would it be like to be a guest? Will I find people like me? It is going to be weird?” These are all questions I would ask. Our church is a place that feels like home. When you come, there is an open welcoming space full of light. You will be greeted cheerfully, but not overboard. Music will be playing. Coffee, tea and snacks are there for free. Yes, you can take them into the auditorium. Our music is contemporary. We dress casually. The messages present the Good News of Jesus. We desire for everyone to know the love of God. That is why we “Bring the love of Jesus to our community”. We believe Jesus would want us to be involved in promoting the good of our community. We encourage you to join us.

Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

There are seven essentials to our faith as Christians and to our ministry as a church that we hold to be true: 

 1. About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.


2. About Jesus Christ 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

3. About the Holy Spirit 

The Holy Spirit is at work in us. He lives in every Christian. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  He gives every believer a spiritual ability to serve believers. He is co-equal with the Father and the Jesus Christ.  All believers are should seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit. We live to be under His control daily.

4. About the Bible 

The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.  

5. About Human Beings 

People are the supreme object of God’s creation. We are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”.   This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.

6. About Salvation 

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

7. About the church 

The Church is the place where God is active by His Spirit. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the church.

Welcome Visitors!

We are so glad that you're here! We want you to feel welcome, and our hope is that this church can feel just like home for you.

We believe that we have a mission. That mission began over 2000 years ago with the life of Jesus, and He has sent us into the world to be light in our community. We believe there is one Church united in this mission in Pierce County; we are just one expression of that mission.

Our story involves a history of over 50 years of serving the University Place, Washington. We do not claim to have it all together, but we believe that as God enables us, we will serve our community with our resources, abilities and energy. We invite you to come and experience a family who loves and follows Jesus together. 

Come sit, fellowship and worship with us as we explore the deeper aspects of living our lives in service to Jesus Christ.
