We welcome you!!
Joining a church can mean many things to many people. Some seek out God and community when they feel they have lost their way. Some are seeking a deeper life purpose. And some are looking for a way to connect to their family and cultural identity. It is our belief that the Church, at its core, is about reconnecting with our Creator and finding love and beauty through God's word and His work.
At Piercing Faith Church, we encourage individuals of all ages and backgrounds to holistically engage the Creator in Christ. We are committed to living out the teachings that Jesus Christ (Yeshua Messiah) taught his Apostles as recorded in the word of God. We are here to spread His message with loving patience and kindness.
To be a fellowship that God delights in and uses to invite people to discover new life in Jesus (Yeshua).
Accordingly, the leadership and many dedicated volunteers are committed to an application and interpretation of Scriptures in alignment with the teachings of Jesus (Yeshua) and the Apostles whom He taught and empowered to teach forward by faith. We believe that whatever we do in word or deed should all be done in the name of the Lord Jesus
Piercing Faith Church is a Christ (Messiah) centered fellowship of believers and seekers. As such, we believe that the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts. They contain the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of humanity and are the divine and final authority and source for all things pertaining to doctrine, faith and the navigation of everyday life.
