We gather for worship each Sunday morning at 8:30a.m. and 11:00a.m. (9:30a.m. from June 16 through August 4) at 8115 Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA. But we are more than a building. We are a congregation that has been in existence for more than 50 years. We are a growing congregation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds seeking to be disciples of Christ. Check out the rest of our website to discover some of the ways that we try to live out our calling as disciples.
Our Mission Statement
Open tomb! We are people tied to the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. ~Mark 16: 5-6
Open hearts! We are people transformed by this good news, marked with the cross of Christ forever!
We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. In return—I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also.
~2 Corinthians 6: 11-13
Open doors! We are people called to proclaim good news with words of invitation and welcome!
I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. ~Revelation 3: 8
