who we are
So here’s the thing about us, who we are isn’t nearly as important as Who Jesus is. And that pretty much sums up the mentality of the community of people that make up Elevate Church. Jesus is the most important thing to us. And who we are is simply a community of people who’ve found hope in Jesus; hope because of the freedom He provides and the forgiveness He promises. And we’re passionate about letting others know that same hope is available to them as well…and that includes YOU!
where we come from
Elevate Church was launched in January of 2012 by Pastor Thomas-Steele and Haley. Surrounded by family and friends, they all dreamed, not having a big church, but of making a big impact. Pastor Thomas-Steele has reiterated this vision time and again, that, a big church is not the goal we’re pursuing, but rather, making a big impact in our community with the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus. The only number that matters to us is one. The one who is lost, the one who is hurting, the one who feels hopeless and rejected and ashamed. The one who feels burdened and broken. The one who has yet to be found and welcomed home and had their broken pieces put back together by the grace and love of God. And so with that mentality, and a passion for simplicity, Elevate Church began with laser focus on loving God and loving others, and loving others the way God does, unconditionally. Our vision was, and remains today, to be a community where anyone and everyone can come and feel welcomed, wanted, and loved, regardless of their past, ethnicity, or gender. We know that whatever may be true about a person, there is a truth that is preeminent above them all, and that is that they are loved by God. Instead of demanding work harder to do better or be better, we want to invite everyone to come, and simply find rest in the One Who is better…and His name is Jesus.
where we’re headed
Elevate Church remains as committed as ever to making an impact on our community with the life-changing love and message of Jesus. Our focus continues to be to serve others and celebrate Jesus. Our passion continues to grow to see more and more people added to our family here at Elevate, and most importantly, brought into the family of God. Bottomline…we just want to continue keeping things simple; loving God and loving people with all our might.
