Who We Are


Simply put, we’re a group of people seeking truth and authentic community. And you’re invited to join in. We don’t expect you to agree with everything we do or say. We just ask that you’re open to considering the possibility that there is a God who loves and pursues you. We exist to facilitate life change.  We believe this occurs through encounters with God and His people, connecting with God’s people around God’s Word, and serving each other–our community–the world.

Countryview Christian Church provides opportunities for you to encounter God in meaningful ways. We recognize that worship is not about us…it’s about God. We do everything we can to bring you and God together.

By “encounter God,” we mean come face to face with God. This may happen in worship, in relationship with other Christians, or in service experiences where the nature of Christ is lived out.

 The members of Countryview Christian Church believe in the deity and Lordship of Christ, the inspiration of the Scriptures, and the autonomy of the local congregation. Our church adheres to the basic principles of "The Restoration Movement," baptism by immersion for the remission of sins, gathering for worship on the first day of the week, and a weekly observance of the Lord's Supper. We seek the unity of all believers on the basis of faith in Christ, the divine Son of God, and the acceptance of the New Testament as the rule of faith and practice.
