Our vision is to be a faith community where all people experience grace, find wholeness, and become great lovers of God. Our mission is to embody the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
We are part of a world-wide organization with more than 18 million members in countries around the world, and our Charlottesville church family has a membership that represents 30 countires. Not only are we a multi-cultural congregation, but we are also a multi-generational congregation. Adults and Youth are active participants in the worship services and ministries of the church. We embrace this divisertiy of membership and use the knowledge we have learned from one another as a tool to reach out to our local communities.
We are also within walking distance of the University of Virgina and enjoy the fellowship of college students during the school year. We also encourage our youth and young people to be involved in our church outreach and ministries. These young people are an integral part of our fellowship and church family and actively take part in our weekly Sabbath services.
We would be very happy to have you join us in worship on Sabbath (Saturday) mornings or at one of the church events listed on our calendar.
