WHY WE EXIST...
We're here to help people
DISCOVER THEIR PURPOSE
and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, you’re welcome here. Our hope is to give you a place where you experience a fresh, enjoyable connection to God and a community of people.
We keep our focus simple so we can have the biggest impact possible. Everything we do as a church is filtered through our focus on helping every person live the full life for which God created all of us.
God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our WEEKEND SERVICES are where we focus on that relationship. Whether you're new to 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.
One of the ways God designed us to live in freedom is to have people in our lives to help us on the journey. Connecting with others in Coastal Small Groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.
We're all an important part of God's plan, and our life will never make sense until we have discovered our purpose. The Coastal Growth Track is designed to help us take steps in the important process of discovering our purpose. You can attend our 4-week Growth Track at each of our campuses beginning the the first Sundays of April/July/October/January.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
This is God's ultimate plan for our life -- to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. Through the Coastal 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 their community.
