What We Believe

Bible Based

We believe in a Biblical message rooted in a traditional view of God’s scripture. Scripture is inspired by God and completely accurate in authority regarding Christian beliefs and the guide for Christian living. We will not de-emphasize, deviate, or distort this message for any reason.

Practical Teaching

We believe that practical, relevant teaching is the catalyst for transformation in individuals’ lives.

Immersive Worship

We believe that an uplifting and energetic worship experience is essential to creating an atmosphere where people can connect and be immersed in God’s presence. God has blessed us with technologies such as audio, video, and lighting that enable us to create a worship environment where we can direct our focus on Him.

Atmosphere of Acceptance

We believe the church should be welcoming to all people regardless of age, appearance, clothing, finances, past experiences, life stages or spiritual background. All people matter to God and ought to matter to the church. It is our desire that everyone can experience God’s grace and love.

Youth Development

We believe in ministries that enable our children and teenagers to grow up knowing the hope and love of Jesus Christ. We support programs that assist parents in raising their kids within a solid Christian framework that emphasizes moral virtues and values.

Cultural Relevance

We believe that we must study and understand our culture in order to communicate the timeless truths of Scripture, especially to those that are spiritually lost.

Spiritual Growth

We believe that we must challenge the status quo in our Christian life by studying, praying, practicing, and praising with a receptive hunger that grows deeper every day.

Helping Others

We believe that helping and serving each other, our local community, and the community beyond deepens our relationship with God and people.

Equipping Leaders

We believe that enabling people to discover and develop their gifts is God’s strategy for changing the world.

Sharing the Message

We believe that our job starts when we leave the physical church building and go out into the community to share the message of hope in Jesus Christ with others.

Relational Integrity

We believe that our relationships with our staff, leaders, and members must be unimpaired.


We believe that we serve an orderly God, and therefore everything we do will be in order and with a spirit of excellence.


We believe that baptism is an outward expression of your faith in Jesus. We do this by full immersion which involves completely submerging a person in water symbolizing purification and spiritual rebirth.

Baby Dedication

We do not baptize babies here at Refresh Community Church. Instead we do baby dedications. Once a child is of age and can fully understand and comprehend the importance of baptism we will then baptize by full immersion.


We believe in one God who exists as three distinct, co-equal, and co-eternal persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit


We believe that when one confesses out of their mouth that Jesus is Lord, and fully believes that in their heart that they are delivered from their sins and are saved.

Acts 2:38

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
