Who We Are

The word “movement” is more than just the name of our church; it represents the DNA of who we are. We desire to be a movement of people living on mission together in order to see lives, neighborhoods, our city, and the world transformed through the love of Jesus. We believe that change is possible.  Not just some of us, but all of us.

We see throughout the scriptures that God’s redemptive plan is always moving forward. The great thing is that He invites us to be a part of that plan through His church. Many people have their own ideas or assumptions of what church is, or what church should be. We want to help people redefine what church is and what church should be. God didn’t establish His church to be a place you attend; He established it to be a movement.

OUR MISSION

Movement Church exists to help people find and follow God. 

YOUR MOVE

YOUR LIFE ON MISSION

You are part of a movement. God invites you to be a part of His mission. No matter where you are at on your spiritual journey there is always a next step to take. What’s your move?

  • Making a decision to follow Jesus means we are given a new life.  Our past doesn’t have to define us. We are invited to be a part of restoring lives and communities.

    We Are

    We Are

    It Simple
  • We won’t settle for “status quo.”  We will continuously challenge our community and individuals to engage in Jesus’ mission.

    Generous
  • The mission of Jesus moves forward when multiplication happens at every level: disciples making disciples, leaders reproducing leaders, and churches multiplying churches.

    We Are About Multiplication
OUR BELIEFS

God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God.

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is our Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to demonstrate His defeat of sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return again to earth to reign as our powerful King.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. We seek to live under his control daily.

People

People are made in the image of God to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, they are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates people from God.

The Bible

This Bible is God’s Word to all people, written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is without error, given to man so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.

Salvation

Salvation is a free gift from God given to any person who puts their faith in Jesus Christ, accepting Him as Lord and Savior. This gift of salvation includes an immediate restoration of a person’s relationship with God and, through the work of the Holy Spirit, a lifetime of continuing transformation of that person’s character into the character of Jesus Christ.

Eternity

Eternity is how long we were created to exist with God. Every person will either exist eternally in union with God in heaven through following Jesus Christ or eternally separated from God in hell due to our refusal to follow Him. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.

The Church

The Church is the body of Christ on earth and is made up of those who have placed their faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Jesus, obeying His commands, and representing Jesus Christ to a needy world. The church works together in love and unity, with the ultimate goal of following and honoring Jesus.
