OUR MISSION

We lead people far from Christ to encounter God, embrace others, and elevate their world.
This means everything our church does is aimed at helping people:

• Experience God in a personal relationship through Jesus Christ.
• Build life-giving relationships and authentic community.
• Discover and develop their God-given purpose that makes a difference in the world.

OUR BELIEFS

In the early church, creeds, or statements of belief, were used to unify the church around the foundations of the Christian faith. For many churches, though, statements of faith have been used as instruments of division. At Elevate Life Church, we embrace the expression, “In the essentials we must have unity; in the non-essentials we must have liberty; in all things we must have love.” While some beliefs are non-negotiable (Ephesians 4:4-6), others are not central to the Christian faith and should allow room for differences of belief (Romans 14: 1, 4, 22).
