What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! You’ll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.

At Gilead, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.

It won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. In fact, we’re actually a network of small groups. If you’d like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, you’ll be glad to know there are opportunities to join a group that’s right for you.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s relevant teaching, heartfelt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we want to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.

So whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants grow deeper in your faith, you can find a home here at Gilead.

In the meantime, you’ll find everything you need right here to get connected to Gilead’s online resources. You can use this site to check out anything from our student ministry to small groups, or watch one of our weekend services.
