Sanctuary Church wants to make a lasting difference in your life, our community, and the world.

Everything we do as a church is filtered through our desire to help every person
Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Their Purpose & Make A Difference.


Know God

Weekend Services

More than just practicing a religion, God wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship. Whether you are new to your faith, have questions or have been a Christ follower for a long time, our services are a safe place to learn more about what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.

Find Freedom

Life Groups

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom, is to have individuals in our lives to help us along in our journey, whether it’s to help encourage or keep us accountable. Connecting with other people in a Community Group is a practical and enjoyable way to find that freedom and help develop true & lasting life-change.

Discover Purpose

Growth Track

We’re all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose. The Growth Track is designed to help us take steps in the important process of discovering our purpose, and there are opportunities to attend one every other month at Sanctuary Church.

Make A Difference

Dream Team

God’s ultimate plan for our life is to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. Through our Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and local community.

    Who We Are

    Our Beliefs & Values

    “In essential beliefs, we have unity. In non-essential beliefs, we have liberty. In all our beliefs, we show charity” – Rupertus Meldenius

    1 / The Bible Is The Word Of God

    All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT

    2 / Jesus Christ Is The Son Of God

    Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 NLT

    3 / You Must Be Born Again

    When anyone becomes a Christian he becomes a new person inside. The old passes away, a new life has begun. 2 Corinthians 5:17 LB

    4 / Salvation Through Jesus Christ

    Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

    5 / Spirit Filled And Spirit Led

    When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and fell our of fellowship with God. This fractured all of creation from that time forward. We believe by salvation in Jesus we can be restored to a right relationship with God be led by His Spirit.

    6 / Resurrection of Jesus Christ

    Through believing in the resurrection of Jesus we are able to be made right with God and be made a new creation through Him. Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God’s kingdom on earth. 

    7 / We Are the Church

    The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
