What has God called us to do?

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. Our heartbeat is to be a spiritually healthy, life-giving, multiethnic, multi-generational and multi-socioeconomic church that truly looks like our community. Our prayer is to see at least 20,000 people experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ over the next 20 years. The vision God has given us is huge, but we cling to Jesus words in Matthew 19:26, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible."
