We exist to help people seek truth, find purpose and become fully engaged followers of Jesus.
We are all imperfect people pursued by a perfect God. If you can relate to not being perfect then this is home.
From the very beginning of Discovery Church in 2017, we have done everything possible to create a church home where imperfect people could seek truth and find purpose.
When you come to Discovery, you will quickly see that our focus is Jesus and we believe in the hope and greater life purpose that He offers all of us (Yes, you as well).
There are no perfect people at Discovery; you don’t need to fix your life before exploring faith with the Discovery family. So, come as you are, meet our team, grab a free coffee and join the journey to discover purpose for yourself.

Jesus is our Focus
Who we are and what we do is filtered first through Jesus as our focus.
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Community is our Strength
Generosity is our Privilege
We are blessed to be a blessing and believe that we cannot out-give God. We live open-handed with our testimony, time, talents and treasures.
6 Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
Excellence is our Standard
Joy is our Choice
Freedom is our Inheritance
Because of what Jesus did for us, we get to live in freedom. Inheritance is receiving something we didn’t work for.
(Gal 5:1, 1 peter 2: 16-17, Romans 3:24)
People are our Passion
(2 Timothy 2: 3-4)
Encouragement is our Language
(Romans 1:12, Proverbs 18:21)
Servanthood is our Posture
The greatest leader to ever live, Jesus, led by serving.
(Matthew 20:28, Matthew 20:16)
Love is our Answer
Love is the foundation of the Gospel therefore our answer will always be love first.
(1 John 14:6)
