We are a family-friendly, family-focused church that loves God and loves people. And our clear mission is leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our mission guides us to operate around 4 active goals
We want to help people CONNECT with God and others through Biblical preaching, teaching, and life-groups. GROW in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. SERVE the local church and community. And ultimately LAUNCH into whatever God is calling them to do to serve the world.
The Message Christian Church is an independent, non-denominational Christian Church, so it doesn’t matter what your church background is. Or, even if you’ve never attended church before. Because either way, at The Message, we welcome you!
We believe the Bible to be the true Word of God, and our name – The Message – is taken from Romans 10:17, which says: “Faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.” So, ultimately…it’s all about Jesus! Meaning, our job is not to preach our own opinions, but to instead earnestly and respectfully teach the entirety of the Bible. You see God’s Word directs us to preach His truths in love…not in judgement or condemnation…but in love. Because honestly, we all need God’s love and grace and have room to grow.
Which is why we also like to say we’re simply a ‘real church for real people,’ because just like everyone else, we also deal with the daily challenges of work, family, finances, marriage, kids, and of course, stress. So by no means are we claiming that we have all the answers, here. But we do know someone Who does! Again, a loving God who always wants what’s best for all of us.
Now, does that mean every day is going to be perfect or will always go the way we want it to? Of course not. But in unity as a loving church family…just doing our best to ‘do life together,’ as we like to say – we continue to help, love, support and encourage one another though it all.
Again, we’re no better than anyone else. But just a group of imperfect people striving to do our best to honour God, serve others, and be a safe and loving place for other imperfect people to come and worship and do likewise.
We invite you to join us for the journey!
