“To live right and Godly lives, by growing up in Christ, led by the Holy Spirit.”
We deeply desire to see people grow in Christ and live an authentic life in Him. It’s simple; healthy things grow. The proof of a genuine disciple of the Lord Jesus is the FRUIT of the Spirit. We sincerely want to MAKE DISCIPLES.
“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” Colossians 1:9-10
GOD IS SOVEREIGN. We passionately pursue a unique worship experience each week in honoring Him and His eternal REIGN. Our longing is to see people turn to Him because we believe in the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ. Worship leads to purpose, not programs.
“Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth." 1 Chronicles 16:29, 30
RELATIONSHIPS are essential. We yearn to live out the genuine life in Christ. We fiercely value reaching out to our neighborhood and world with excellence to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Freedom in Christ is our message, and RELATIONSHIPS matter more than activity. It is all about knowing the TRUTH, then we experience life together.
"So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
We believe everyone matters to God and He wants to give us a fresh start in life, and leave our sins behind. The name, FRESH Church, is based on Paul’s words from his letter to the Romans.
“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness (fresh) of life." Romans 6:1-4
Knowing Him gives us hope, hope of His return, hope of His peace, and the hope of eternal life with Him…so we serve with integrity and give generously. Christ…our only HOPE. When we Hope and Serve we focus on sending others.
“ To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
Fresh Church adheres to the ancient statements of faith (the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Creed of Chalcedon) and affirms the historic Christian faith as expressed in the five solas of the Reformation: sola scriptura, sola fide, sola gratia, solus Christus, soli deo Gloria.

"Observe how Christ loves us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. LOVE LIKE THAT."
