We want to see personal revival, that is relevant to our city by changing long time held expectations about God, The Holy Spirit, and the restoring love of Jesus with a cooperative approach to the great commission. Innovate Church is a church start-up where anyone can worship, experience, discuss, and learn about the Christian walk of life in a family orientated setting. One of the ways we are being innovative is by establishing a culture that is not the normal way people experience church. Our mission is to be here for people, so they can be there for the world!
We’re here for you, you’re there for the world! You’re important to us, not because of the people you can bring and things you can do for us, but because of what God can do through you where God has placed you. We’re here to help you impact your world!
We innovate how to meet people's needs, not just how to increase numbers on Sunday. We're not here to recreate the Church, but to innovate for the church of the future. Our saying here is "don't just imitate, innovate!"
Friends of God
We desire everyone to know the Holy Spirit as a best friend that we all have in common. We try to be led by the Holy Spirit in everything we do at our church in order to bring Heaven to Earth.
We believe that everyone is an equally valued and gifted member of our church, including our kids! We receive and minister side by side.
We don't treat people as projects and don't have agendas in trying to love God and love people. We just want to be authentic witnesses of Jesus.
James 1:6-8 Romans 12:9 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe the literal interpretation of the Bible and that it is God's Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal/physical return to rule the earth in power and love.
John 1:14-18 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
We believe all mankind is lost in sin and need to turn from it and trust personally in the Savior - Jesus Christ. All need to be born anew into God's family by the Holy Spirit's power.
Ephesians 2:1-10 John 3:5-7
The Holy Spirit
We believe God the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers through baptism in the Holy Spirit (after being saved), and works in and through us by His fruits and gifts.
We believe in the resurrection to eternal life for believers and eternal judgment for the lost.
We believe in unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together: we want to become more like Him, who is the head of His body, the Church, in every way. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us.
