The vision of Refuge Church is to be a refuge to a hurting world by connecting people to the power and presence of Jesus Christ.
Filled with compassion and offering hope to the poor, oppressed, and forgotten, Refuge Church is a refuge for a hurting world. As such, we have adopted the Refuge Cares Culture to serve as the environment for carrying out the vision of Refuge Church.
Refuge Church's Statement of Faith is comprised of eight parts; Holy Bible, God, The Father, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, Salvation, the Church, and Two Sacraments. Each are individual parts of a whole creating the foundation of beliefs for Refuge Church.
