About

At Rhythm Church, we are #ChangingTheTempo

Who we are

Rhythm Church is a church that desires to change the tempo of people’s lives with God’s love. Picture a church that whole mission is to tell you about God’s love and teach you to hear His voice. A church whose mission is to get out and go to the lost; to go to the one and bring them home. A place where people from all walks of life feel at home, and equally valued by everyone just as they are by our Heavenly Father. This is the Sound Of Rhythm; this is Rhythm Church.

Our Beliefs

Our Culture & Values

Our Leadership

Be the heartbeat of Jesus.

Our Culture

Jesus Over Everything

In today’s culture, church can be confusing or off-putting depending on your experience, so our promise is to keep the gospel message of Jesus at the center of all we do and say. To communicate and reflect the truth in love; keeping the main thing the main thing. It is our heart to daily lay down our lives until the whole world knows Jesus as Lord.

People Are Our Mission

It is our mission to go. The church is not the building, it’s the people; love in action. We believe that all people were created with intentionality and with a purpose. It is our heart to walk alongside, champion, and cultivate the gifting of people so that they can live the life that God created them for.

Worship Is Our Heartbeat

Worship is our lifeline. We worship him because worship is connection; it bridges the gaps in our minds and hearts with His mind and His heart. Worship is our lives brought to him; the posture of our hearts.

Hilarious Generosity Is Our Honor

We are different yet the same; this is Kingdom. Our differences should be celebrated because they reflect the majesty and awestruck wonder of an amazing God. In a world full of division and hatred, we are called to unify all through faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ.

Unity Is Our Calling

In today’s culture, church can be confusing or off-putting depending on your experience, so our promise is to keep the gospel message of Jesus at the center of all we do and say. To communicate and reflect the truth in love; keeping the main thing the main thing. It is our heart to daily lay down our lives until the whole world knows Jesus as Lord.

The Next Generation Is Our Today

The Next Generation is not our tomorrow, they’re our today. It is our mission to leave a legacy by empowering them to take ownership of their faith and lead today.

Creating A New Rhythm Is Our Way

A new rhythm is created through patterns of progression and repetition. This only happens through clarity, connections, and consistency. Clarity of who you are in Christ, connecting with the body of believers, and consistently seeking to know God’s heart. It is our heart to empower people through love to change the world!

The Beat Attitudes

Always be on mission to fulfill the Great Commission.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20

Be Loving (More Grace)

Be willing look past people’s faults and shortcomings and engage in love.

Our Vision

We have a Passion for the church to be a place to encounter the true love of Jesus that is Real, Contagious, and Unconventional. Jesus’ ministry was that of Action; He didn’t wait, He Actively pursued people.

Just as Jesus was the physical expression of God’s love, the Great Commission is inviting us to create a NEW SOUND by:

Bridge gaps between the community and the church

Provide feedback and support for education

Create new resources for healthy families and marriages

Facilitate new approaches for youth activities and outlets

Participate with the city to enhance the image of our neighborhoods

Engage in local and global missions

Build lifelong relationships

Do life together
