Welcome to Laurel Church.
As you spend time with us, you’ll discover that we are all flawed people. You’ll see our good moments and bad moments. You’ll observe Christ’s love working through us as well as our struggles, prejudices, anger, fear, doubt, depression, stubbornness and self-centeredness. None of us are perfect. We all fall short of God’s rightness.
What we do share together however is our love for Jesus, His forgiveness of our self-centered behaviors and thoughts, and our desire to become the loving person we were meant to be.
You are always welcome to join us on this journey with Jesus Christ. Even if you do not understand what this spiritual life is all about, you are welcome to be involved in the life of our community, get to know some of us, ask any questions, help out helping others or attend Bible studies and small groups.
If you have any issues you’d like to raise, any questions you might have or just want to visit, you can contact us anytime.
I hope you experience the loving presence of God in your life.
At Laurel Church, we share…
A Common Identity We are …
Common Values We value …
The Life of every soul
Freedom to explore, and
Love for neighbor and Lord.
A Common Goal:
To grow in our trust and love for God so as to love each person we meet just as Jesus loves them.
A Common Strategy:
- In order to connect more deeply with God, we encourage each other to practice five spiritual disciplines: Worship, Prayer, Study, Service and Christian Community.
- These disciplines are not ways to salvation or "brownie points" to earn God's love, but are ways to enhance, understand and grow in our faith and love relationship that we already have through our trusting in Christ as Lord and Savior.
Our Common Mission:
The Great Commandment
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
- Mark 12:30–31NIV
- The Great Commission
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” -Matthew 28:19-20
- The Great Summary
“… The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
- Galatians 5:6NIV
