Our Mission, values, & beliefs
When the question was asked, “So, why church?” Eugene Peterson aptly answered, “The short answer is because the Holy Spirit formed it to be a colony of heaven in the country of death.” As Encounter Church we seek to embody human witness to and a tangible foretaste of the Jesus-inaugurated kingdom of God in this world as we help people find their way back to God.
Who we are
Encounter church is a family, and a place to call home. We seek to love well and be a community that welcomes people from all walks of life and encourages them to embark on an adventurous search for the honest, real, and eternal faith.
Encounter church has six elders that prayerfully give direction and guidance to the church.
Each part of Encounter Church is thoughtfully crafted and designed by our staff. Our desire is for each person to encounter God and a safe community through our Sunday worship services, small groups, and various events.
