Together We're Better

we're all in this together

Still together

There are numerous uncertainties during this time. However, one certainty remains absolutely true; Together, We’re Better! And we’re in this Together.  We’re able to pray together, even if it demands we pray from different locations. We’re able to worship together, even if it requires connecting through the internet. We’re able to touch each other, even though it’s by means of intentional actions, rather than physical contacts. We’re NOT separated, even though for now, we are apart.  

The current state of events isn't a surprise to God. We know that this condition does not determine our final outcome. We know God's Word never fails and nothing is impossible with Him. Let's make the most of this time and grow our inner-man (and woman!), strengthen our families, reach out to those who we may have not otherwise connected with, and seize this opportunity to make an eternal impact for the Kingdom!

Believe with us: “He crowns the year with His goodness, and even the hard paths overflow with abundance.” (Psalms 65:11)  Believe with us: Our final outcome will be better than our current condition. Believe with us: We’ll be stronger when this is over than we were when it began. Believe with us!

SERVICES DURING THE STAY HOME, STAY HEALTHY PROCLAMATION

As stated in our Health Updates, The Garden will continue to meet online until restrictions on public gatherings are lifted.  Until then, we'll gather Saturday evenings at 6pm and Sunday 9:30am live on our Facebook page.  Sunday at 11am, that same service will be rebroadcast on our YouTube channel. (That’s also where you can watch past messages anytime!)  Kids preschool through 5th Grade: visit our gKIDS page for info on weekend videos and lessons, just for you!

All youth 6th-12th grades (and their parents) should like the Facebook GYM page and be ready to go live at 7pm every Wednesday night!

Subscribe to our YouTube channel and watch from any smartphone, tablet, computer, or smart TV.  You can also access our sermon archives on our Messages page and iTunes.

What we believe

Trinity
We believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each is individual in person but one in unity as the Godhead. The Father is God; the Son, Jesus Christ, is God; and the Holy Spirit is God. (Gen 1:1; Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19; John 1:1-4)


Salvation
We believe that every person is in need of salvation and a spiritual birth to receive eternal life, and that salvation is available to every person through the life, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (John 3:1-21; 1 John 5:1-4)


Reaching the Lost
We believe in evangelism, that all people should be saved, and that all Christians should participate on a local and worldwide scale in that mission. (Matt. 28:18, 19; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:8)


Healing for All
We believe physical healing has been bought for all through the crucified body of Jesus. (Isa. 53:3-5; Matt. 8:16,17; 1 Peter 2:24)


Marriage
We believe that marriage is a divine institution between a man and a woman and should be honored as such. (Gen. 2:20-25; Matt. 19:3-8; Eph. 5:22-33)


Christ is Coming Again!
We believe in the eminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for those who are born again. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thess. 4:14-18; 5:1-4)



The Inspired Word of God
We believe that the Bible, made up of 66 books, is the Word of God. It is the truth, inspired by God and the way of life for all Christians. (Psalm 119; 2 Tim. 3:16, 17)



The Local Church
We believe in the Church, the body of Christ. It is the local assembly of Christians and the center of healing and spiritual growth for all believers. (Psalms 92:13, 14; Matt. 16:18; Eph. 1:22, 23)



Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe all born again people can and should be baptized with the Holy Spirit and speak with other tongues. (Mark 16:17; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 10:44-46; 19:1-7)



Water Baptism
We believe in water baptism for the born again person and the regular receiving of the Lord’s body and blood in the communion service. (Matt. 3:16; 28:19; Acts 8:36-39)


God-given destiny
We believe that every person (including the unborn) is important to God and has divine value and an eternal destiny given by God. (Psalm 139:13-18; John 3:16; Eph. 1:3-6, 16-19; 2:10)

What to expect

God placed each one of us on this earth with a specific plan and for a purpose. That purpose involves other. Call it a community, a family, a tribe…We weren’t created to live life alone. We’re meant to do life with others. When we get together as a church family, it should be a relevant, life-giving experiences you can carry outside of the building into your world! Our hope is that you leave the Garden encouraged, challenged, and empowered to live the life God has imagined for you!

From the parking lot to free ice cream for the kids, church life should be fun! When you join us for a service, you’ll be greeted by friendly people who are really glad you’re here. Help yourself to free coffee and a bottle of water and take a minute to meet people just like you. When you see the yellow flashing lights, that means service will be starting in 5 minutes. Join us in the sanctuary for praise and worship that invites the presence of God to touch lives and heal hearts, and a message from the Bible that we can use in real life…the God-Life that He has planned for each one of us!

As you get to know us, you’ll see that we really do enjoy life and we really do believe that together, we’re better!
