A Message from Our Pastor

Rooted. Relevant. Reaching.

Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by our little corner of the internet. If you are looking for a new church home there are some things you might want to know about us.

First, we are a family of faith that is ROOTED in history. The community of Steilacoom is the proud home of the first protestant church north of the Columbia River and we are the proud heirs of that historical reality. Yeah, this fellowship has been around for a while, but we are not stuck in traditional-"ism" or resting on our laurels. We have a clear purpose to glorify God, grow in His grace and go into all the world, beginning with the greater Steilacoom area, to bring the truth of God’s word and a demonstration of Jesus’ love.

We are a church that is RELEVANT to our generation. We are a community of Jesus followers that spans all generations. We are intentionally intergenerational in our approach to ministry. We seek a meaningful conversation with the 21st century. Innovation in the cause of the gospel is a core value.

Finally, we are a fellowship of Christ-followers that is REACHING toward the future. We gladly embrace the challenge of connecting with the next generation - we believe our best days are before us! We may stand on the shoulders of previous generations of faithful disciples, but we understand that there is still much to be done… and we would love to find a way to partner together with you in that task!

After you finish browsing the website I invite you to stop by for some face time. I am confident that you’ll find the service inspiring and the people friendly. Come as you are… no need to dress up. Bring the whole family - we love kids! And be sure to say hi, I am anxious to meet you!

Joyfully Yours In Christ!

Pastor Chuck


We are a people united by Christ in a holy covenant, empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the Great Commandments and the Great Commission:
To love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind;
To love our neighbor as ourselves, and
To go into the entire world and make disciples.

We are an...

Historic church. We are part of the universal Church that has existed from the days of the apostles until now. This includes all who confess faith in Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Evangelical church. Evangelicals historically have been characterized by a number of significant emphases: a strong insistence on biblical authority; the absolute necessity of new birth; Christ’s mandate to evangelize the world; the continuing need for education and formation in a Christian context; and responsibility for benevolence, compassion, mercy and justice in our world.
Apostolic church. We confess Jesus Christ and the faith of the apostles as recorded in the Holy Scriptures.

Reformation church. We see ourselves, as standing in the mainstream of the Protestant reformation, particularly with reference to the doctrine that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone.

Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ through daily, whole-life discipleship;
