About Our Church

Our Story

We are a church ​that was started over 50 years ago by Bob Swanger as Christ the King Lutheran Church.­ Over the last 50 years, we have had four lead pastors, been in three different locations, and started a K-­8 school and an Early Learning Center. God opened up the opportunity to be on this property long before the mall was here, and we feel that God had a plan for us. We are currently the only church in the Polaris Centers of Commerce area and we believe that comes with a great responsibility to reach out to those in this area. Even though we have a history of 50 years, in many ways we feel like we are just beginning the journey that God has for us as a church.

Better Together

We are a gathering​ of people, all with our own stories and backgrounds. We are all on a journey starting from the same place, imperfect people in need of God in our lives to help us, save us, and lead us. It is when we begin to journey together that we find we are stronger together than when we are alone.

Journey Together

We are committed ​to go on this journey together. We are here to reach out to those who feel disconnected from God and those who are disillusioned with church. We want to show people that true life begins with knowing Christ and being a part of His church. None of us are perfect and we all have our own struggles, but what if there was a church that was committed to walking together in good times and hard times, tried every day to be a little more like Christ than the day before, and was committed to serving the community because it is the right thing to do. We are that church, and we invite you and your family to join us so  we can journey together.

Why We Exist

We were never meant to go through life alone. 

What if we could actually be a part of a community that was committed to journey through life together? When we do this we find out that we can now make it through any obstacle or struggle, because we are better when we are together. We will journey together into Christ's purpose.

Journey

​Through the highs and lows of life, ​i​n good times and bad. We will love consistently, l​ean into the awkward, and have a long term view and goals. The journey ​r​equires patience, encourages direction and movement, g​rants grace, and recognizes that we are fully dependent on the grace of God.

Together

We have authentic community.  We are a safe environment where we serve one another and others.  No one will walk alone, and we will always invite outsiders to journey alongside us, because we believe that we are always better together.

Into

We will step into Christ's plan for our lives, following his path of salvation, growth, and purpose.  We believe that all roads lead toward Christ and to growth in Him, and while we will always grow, we know that we will never fully arrive.

Christ's

Christ is the foundation of everything, and becoming more like Him is always the goal.  Christ determines the direction of our lives, and we make it our life's goal to be a reflection of Him.

Purpose

We will step into God's purpose and calling for our lives.  We will reach others, we will teach others, and we will bring hope to the hopeless.  We will strive in every way to make our lives count.
