Thanks for being here!
The Gathering Church is here to show people how amazing a relationship with Jesus Christ can be. We are also very aware of the fact that many people in our community do not attend church; our goal is to be a place where the "unchurched" feel comfortable and want to come back again and again.
We're a Mess!
Yeah, We admit it, we're a mess! One of our core values says, "We are broken people discovering healing together." Most of the people you meet when you visit The Gathering will be nice and friendly. But you need to know, before you come, that we're a bunch of broken messes.
There are people attending, and even leading at The Gathering, who have major hurts, and hang-ups. In Fact, perfect people are not allowed. We're a community of people who don't have it all together, but are discovering what it means to find life in Jesus, to follow him fully, to break free from our past, and to walk in victory together. That's who we are.
What to Expect When You Visit
We hope you believe that we care about, not what you're wearing, not how many tattoos or piercings you may have or even what you may have done in your past! Why should we care about those things; we are very much alike! We are a church full of broken, imperfect people who are coming to know Jesus. Regardless of your story, we believe that you belong here!
If you've never been and you're considering coming, here's what you should expect...
At The Gathering, what's most important to us, besides our faith in God, is that you feel at home. Our goal is to make church what Jesus intended it to be, and not what man has turned it into! We trust the Bible completely, even when we don't fully understand it. And we value Kingdom growth; our vision is the Change the Spiritual Atmosphere of Buena Vista and the whole surrounding valley. We do everything in the name and fame of Jesus Christ!
