Why Another New Church?

A Place Of Peace

Everyone Needs a place to be rejuvenated

We have been asked this question a few times in the last few months.  It often comes from people that aren’t attending church for one reason or another.  Some times it even comes from those that have no intention of going to church.  In this they often answer the question for us.  We are doing it for them.  We are doing for those that feel that Christianity has nothing to offer them or that organized religion has lost touch with itself.

We are very aware we aren’t the only outreach to people that feel that way.  We just know that in the Treasure Valley alone it is estimated that over 150,000 people do not attend church.  Some have left the churches locally because they where disappointed or hurt.  Some have never attended because of the very nature of the Christians they know.   Many have been asked to leave because of their lifestyle or habits and were told they are not welcome in the house of God.

Personally I felt it was time to get back to teaching the word of God.  It is when I feel the most alive and present in his grace.  I listen to all kinds of ministry and the Lord keeps whispering to me “See this  is where you can reach them where others won’t.”  Notice I didn’t say I was hearing the only “correct” way, I am just hearing that God wants to touch the lives of those that are being missed with “church as usual”.  I see so many left unwanted or unattended to with the love of Christ.  I just couldn’t ignore the call any longer.

If you have been hurt by religion, rejected because of lifestyle, felt judged and condemned, then pay us a visit.  We are a group of imperfect people seeking out the perfection of God’s grace in our lives.  We are not here to judge you or condemn you.  We are here to encourage you to take a journey with us as we each develop a personal and lasting relationship with Christ.  Don’t know if that is what you are looking for?  Let’s talk.  You will find us open for discussion and not fearful that we don’t have all the answers.
