Do Life Together

RELATIONSHIPS, not religion.

At Freshwater, you'll find a church where there is no dress code, where it's okay to laugh and where questions are encouraged. We're a church that speaks in everyday language, where you're accepted even if you're not sure where you stand spiritually. We don't claim to know it all and we certainly aren't perfect! If you're ready to find out more, getting started is easy!

Who We Are


Believers helping each other say yes to Jesus.

 

and the fine print.

It's our mission to help all people say yes to Jesus in every area of their lives. Read on for more about our values and beliefs. 

Our Values

  • REAL: It's safe to be who you are at Freshwater without fear of judgment or condemnation.
  • RELATIONAL: We are changed through relationships with God, and others, not religious rules.
  • RELEVANT: Our faith should make sense, not only on Sunday, but in our Monday through Saturday lives, too!
  • REACHING: We want to reach others with the hope and good news of Jesus's message, both in our local communities and around the world.
  • REFINING: God changes us; refining each person into his purest form. God loves us where we are, but loves us too much to let us stay there.

Our Beliefs

Freshwater Community Church believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Redeemer of the world. We believe in the complete authority of Scripture as God's written word.
