We want to be a hub where friends and neighbors can find community and experience tangible transformation through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We love the community where God has placed us. We celebrate the Eastside and its beautifully diverse population, its booming job market, and its bright reputation as a place of innovation. At the same time, we also recognize that all is not well in our community. Loneliness, inequity, anxiety, and apathy abound, and neither work nor wealth nor technology can solve these problems.
We believe God has called us to be a church that seeks the good of all in our community. We want to be people who pursue and promote whole-life transformation (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to follow Jesus and to bear witness to him where we live, work, play, and learn.
We at Kelsey Creek Church believe that Jesus is the center, that all are welcome all the time, that transformation is the goal, and that we do not exist for ourselves.
We are committed to pursuing spiritual formation that equips us for mission. We invite everyone to seek God through regular corporate worship, shared faith formation (small groups, classes, and missional service), and personal spiritual practices.
We encourage everyone to embrace a 1+1 rhythm. That is, we invite everyone to choose one opportunity where you can be “poured into” (a Bible study, class, or small group) and one opportunity where you can be “poured out” (a place to serve).
People are, of course, welcome to participate in multiple opportunities; however, because both life and “church life” can be busy, we invite everyone to start with 1+1.
Our Core Beliefs
We affirm three historic creeds: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. Each affirms the divinity of the Trinity and essential gospel truths regarding Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross and ultimate resurrection. Our denomination, CRCNA, also affirms a number of other creeds and confessions; however, our congregation most often uses the Heidelberg Catechism and Our World Belongs to God: A Contemporary Testimony in our worship services.
