We intend to make church a refuge, a safe and authentic place for people to face life’s tough issues so they can grow both emotionally and spiritually in a relationship focused on doing life together with God and others (Connect), facing life’s tough issues together (Grow), helping people to heal, overcome and give back to God and others (Give) and share God’s incredible grace with others. (Go)
(Matthew 28:16-20, Mark 16:15-18)
We are a multi cultural church that welcomes anyone and everyone regardless of their past into an atmosphere of acceptance, through innovative worship and methods, through practical teaching based on biblical values to meet the needs of people where they are. It’s our goal to encourage people to surrender their lives to Christ and grow in a relationship with Him while getting connected with other believers to love life. Refuge is a place of help, hope and healing.
Many people believe they are walking through life alone. At Refuge, our Life Groups help connect people to one another to face life’s everyday challenges. Our desire and goal is to connect every person at Refuge Church into a life changing small group. Our Life Groups consist of a small group of adults engaged in bible study and fellowship on a regular basis. These groups share their lives together in a safe and open environment which results in transparent relationships and a deeper spiritual walk with Christ.
The church today seems to shy away from issues like alcoholism, codependency, drugs, food, pornography, and many others. We all ahve struggles and Refuge Church is committed to help people process through these issues whether from the past or the present. These groups are completely confidential and safe to those who attend allowing them to express their struggles and get to the root of their pain so they can experience an abundant life of freedom and victory in Christ.
