We Are The Sanctuary!

The Sanctuary is a diverse group of people who share in our passion for God and for His people. Our members are Black and White, gay and straight, single and married, young and... well, not quite as young. We're held together by a strong bond of love that cannot be broken.

Our goal as a congregation is to loudly and proudly proclaim God's love for all people, combating the misconception that Christians are a bunch of self-righteous, judgmental bigots who hunger for social and political power. We endeavor to help people live victorious, successful lives, prospering always internally in mind, body, spirit, and externally in finances, friendships, relationships, and every other area of life.

You are invited to come and be a part of this great work that God is doing. We hope to welcome you as a new member of our family!

Everyone Is Welcome At The Sanctuary!

Our Mandate

The Sanctuary has a 4-part mission that God has laid on our hearts. We call it our A.R.E.A. It describes our why—the purpose for which we exist and do what we do. This mission is as follows:



Everything that we do as a church begins with affirmation. Without knowing at your core that God loves and accepts you for who you are, everything you do as a Christ-follower will be done under a cloud of unnecessary fear and shame. But it's not only important to know that God affirms you. It's important to know that your church family does, too!



Knowing that God affirms you invites you to be reconciled to Him. Without fear, shame, sin-consciousness, the need to perform, and other forms of bad theology standing in the way, your relationship with God and others can be restored and strengthened.



God said that His people are destroyed because of their lack of knowledge. What we don't know can hurt us. It can keep us from realizing our dreams, and from fulfilling God's purpose for our lives. Once your relationship with God has been restored, our job is to equip you with the tools necessary to live out the fullness of your heritage as God's beloved offspring.



Once you've been equipped, you're ready to be activated–to be sanctioned and supported in fulfilling your divine purpose, and living your best life. And the great thing is, you won't have to do it alone. We're all on this journey together, as a Sanctuary family!
