Thank you for taking the time to inquire about StoneBridge Church through our website.

There are so many ways that you can talk about a local church, but the way that I most often think about it is its purpose. The church is meant to bring the kingdom of heaven to earth. In other words, a local church should be a foretaste of heaven itself. There is nothing on earth like the local church when it is functioning the way it was intended.

Some of the things you’ll find at StoneBridge that demonstrate Christ’s kingdom are:

• The centrality of the person and work of Jesus Christ
• Leaders devoted to the teaching and preaching of God’s Word so that lives are transformed by it
• Caring relationships with authenticity and honesty
• Community of believers living out the gospel of grace
• People committed to encouraging each other in their walks with Christ
• Worship services designed first to glorify Christ, while also seeking to connect our hearts to His
• Our dependence on the power of prayer

If this concept of the church building God’s kingdom on earth is new to you, I encourage you to take a moment and listen to the introductory message to our STONES sermon series, which explains the purpose, vision, and mission of our church. Audio Messages

I invite you to worship with us this coming Sunday and, if you do, take a moment to introduce yourself to me after the service. I would love to meet you.
