Welcome to Revelation Church!
Loving God & Loving Others
So people far from God experience radical transformation through Christ.
We are a church unlike any other in the area. We strive to make those who have never attended church, those who have lost their purpose, or those who don’t regularly attend a local church feel right at home. You will enter into a space that is designed to be warm and inviting with just enough edge to let you know that this place is different. You will be blown away by a dynamic worship band playing the latest Christian music and you will ask yourself, “Can church really be like this?” Each message centers on not only meeting you where you are but taking you to where you need to go—to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe He is the only hope for the lost and hurting and the only way to experience transformation. We understand we live in an age where most people don’t know their neighbors, but Rev’s desire is to make this church a home away from home. We promise not to waste your time but instead fill it with meaningful relationships that will encourage you in your day to day struggles. Come partner with us in bringing life and light to the Norwich community.
Pursuing people who are far from God
Revelation Church has a passion to pursue people that are far from God. Through a relaxed, casual atmosphere, dynamic worship, and relevant messages, we believe we will create a place and an opportunity where people will not only find God but truly get to know Him. We believe in focusing on two ways to connect people with people: Small groups that offer faith growth and a chance to share with others in an intimate home-setting; and serve teams that allow them to catch the vision of reaching others for Christ by giving of themselves in church and outreach events to the community.
Molding believers, influencing the world
We are PASSIONATE: we will lovingly and fervently pursue those far from God and develop them into a generation that will impact the kingdom.
We are UNSTOPPABLE: we will not stop until every person in our community has heard the truth about Jesus.
We are PRIVILEGED: we recognize we don’t have to serve…we get to serve. We will remain grateful and positive and never take our position for granted.
We are PURPOSEFUL: we will not waste time or be distracted from our vision. Everything we do is done with intentionality to expand the kingdom.
We are a GENERATION OF HONOR: we will seek to honor those above us, beside us and under us, due to the calling and God’s best in them.
We will INSPIRE: we will speak life and hope into those who have lost their sense of purpose, so that they may discover the God potential within themselves.
We are REVELATION: we will passionately defend the vision of our Pastor so that our heart’s cry becomes “So people far from God experience radical transformation through Christ.”
Harnessing culture to connect with people.
WE BELIEVE in one God, who is eternal, all-powerful, and absolutely Holy; who has revealed Himself to man as existing in three distinguishable expressions of His essential being: The Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; and John 14:15-17).
WE BELIEVE that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments (the accepted canon of Holy Scripture) is God’s eternal, inspired, infallible Word in its entirety; and is the supreme standard and final authority for all conduct, faith, and doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
WE BELIEVE Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 17; Romans 4:25).
WE BELIEVE in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12-15; Romans 5:11).
WE BELIEVE in the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world and perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith. (Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1).
WE BELIEVE in eternal life for believers: a literal heaven, where we will live and reign with Christ and eternal punishment for unbelievers: A literal hell for those who reject Christ. (John 5:24; Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).
WE BELIEVE the church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. The church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ. (Matthew 16:18-19; Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 1:22-23).
