About Us

Church One has been called by God to reach and teach the saved, unsaved, as well as the unchurched. Our teaching and preaching approach is diverse. We are able to begin at “ground zero” with the basic doctrine of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ; then, expand to a style that is more thought-provoking and stimulating theologically.


We believe that practical application is key to spiritual growth. We minister to people of all ages and backgrounds, including children, youth, adults, mature Christians, and those who struggle with depression, suicidal thoughts, or feel like outcasts from society. Our services are welcoming and casual in dress, yet we always approach worship with reverence and a desire to honor God. Join us and see how our practical approach can help you grow in your faith.
