EXPERIENCE GOD EXPECT CHANGE
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PRESENCE!
Our vision is to see people saved, transformed, discipled and serving by the power and presence of God.
Our mission of building the Jesus Culture of Community is given by God to create a healthy, nurturing and thriving community of believers who serve God and one another by the power of the transformative love of Jesus Christ. We experience His merciful and gracious love as we invoke His presence by prayer, worship and the teaching of His Word. As we lead people to salvation, they experience freedom, find their purpose and make a difference not only here at Encounter, but the in the Kingdom of God.
