About Us

Discover the heart and soul of Pursuit Worship. Journeying together in faith, service, and community since 2019.

Our Mission & Vision

At the core of our church lies a dual commitment: Our Mission of Pursuing God and Making Disciples. We believe in creating a community deeply rooted in biblical teachings, fostering a personal and transformative relationship with God. Through worship, prayer, and service, we aim to embody the love and teachings of Jesus Christ. As we grow in faith, our vision extends to nurturing disciples – individuals who are not only followers of Christ but also active spreaders of His Word and love. By empowering each member of our community to live out their faith in daily life, we strive to make a lasting impact, both locally and globally, in the spirit of Christ's teachings.

Cultivating Community & Connection

At the heart of Pursuit Worship lies a vibrant community that thrives on connection, understanding, and mutual support. Beyond our weekly gatherings and worship sessions, we actively engage in outreach initiatives, small group discussions, and fellowship events, ensuring that every member feels seen, heard, and valued. Our doors are always open, inviting you to be part of a community that cherishes unity in diversity and seeks to make every interaction a reflection of God's boundless love.

In Christ’s life of perfect obedience to God’s will, His suffering, death, and resurrection, God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement may have eternal life, and the whole creation may better understand the infinite and holy love of the Creator.

The Experience of Salvation

In infinite love and mercy God made Christ, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him we might be made the righteousness of God. Led by the Holy Spirit we sense our need, acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our transgressions, and exercise faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord, Substitute and Example.
