why essential exists
We have a huge vision for the future, and we’re eager to tell you about it. We think you’ll get excited about it too. Let’s see what happens when we come together and pull in the same direction.
learn the details of essential
We are a church that, like Jesus, leans into not only grace or only truth but strives for 100% grace & 100% truth. We know that there are people far from God and we are building a community that champions and celebrates inviting and welcoming all of our neighbors, coworkers, friends and family to join us at church.
take your next step
This is a safe place for you to explore Christianity. You don’t have to have all the answers. You don’t have to have any of the answers. At Essential you will find a warm and welcoming environment with smiling faces and coffee. You are invited to be comfortable and wear what you like to any of our services or events.
