Jesus Is the Center

OUR MISSION

Every journey to God is an individual one, but it is not a journey that should be taken alone. The mission of Upper Room Church is to serve as an empowering guide and a viable spiritual resource.. We Believe God wants to take every person on a journey of knowing him personally, finding freedom from their past, discovering purpose for their future, and making a difference in the world around them.

WE WANT EVERY PERSON TO

Know God

We believe every person has a next step in their relationship with God. Whether you are brand new to the faith, or have been serving God all your life. We design our Sunday Services around this one goal; to help all people take their next step in knowing Christ in a more personal way.

Find Freedom

He who the son sets free is free indeed! We believe this, and want you to experience this freedom! At Upper Room Church, we know true life change is found in circles, not in rows. Upper Room Groups are designed to help people, regardless of their past, find genuine and lasting freedom in Jesus.

Discover Purpose

God has a plan and purpose for you! We want to help you find it! At Upper Room Church, we believe the best way to begin this process is by going through our Growth Track Class. This class is strategically designed to help you discover your God given gifts and ultimately find your purpose.

Make a Difference

Team work makes the dream work! At Upper Room Church, we value each person and their unique gifting's and talents. The only way to truly be fulfilled in this life is to use your God given gifts to serve others! Our Upper Room Dream Team is designed to plug you in to the church by giving you an avenue to use your gifts to serve others and make a difference.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inerrant, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

The Trinity

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Sin

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

Salvation

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts.

The Church

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts.

God's Will

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

Healing

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.

Eternity

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Second Coming

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

God's Grace

We believe in the absolute dependence upon Gods Grace to live a sanctified Christian life. In accordance to Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”.

WHAT WE VALUE

Authenticity

It's ok to not be ok.  At Upper Room, we value authentic genuine relationships. Upper Room is a place where you don't have to wear a mask and try to be something or someone that you are not. We believe the first step in finding healing, is uncovering the places in our lives that we may be hiding.

Love

Our goal at Upper Room is to love the way Christ did. He defended the defenseless, fought for justice, and sacrificed for those around him. When it comes to loving our neighbor, Jesus is our model, message, and means.

Opportunity

At Upper Room Church we believe everyone has potential and every person is needed. Without others, we would not be able to do what God has called us to do. So we believe whether you have been a Christian one day, or one hundred years, there's a opportunity for you to serve at Upper Room Church.

Creativity

We were created, by a creator, to create. We believe creativity is the highest form of human expression. It was the first attribute we are given about God in Genesis, that in the beginning, he created. At Upper Room, it's our mission to help every person unlock their creative potential in Christ.
