We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Messiah a great experience.
You might be wondering, what’s it really like at Messiah.
Simply stated, at Messiah, we’re all about Jesus. You won’t be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. And we don’t care how you’re dressed or what you believe. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable. At Messiah, Jesus takes us where we are and we grow in Him together. Want to know the best part? No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you’ll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone.
