ancient Israel

Our name, Tekoa (te-ko’-a), comes from the city Tekoa in Israel. Outside of that city, the Israelites faced an attack from their enemy, which is recorded in 2 Chronicles 20.  God’s people put their faith in God at this critical moment .  They turned to God before the battle instead of preparing their army to fight with their strength. God promised them a victory without having to fight, and they went forward with worship instead as God had instructed them to do.
Simply put: Tekoa was a place where God’s people turned to him in their time of need and he provided for them.  They went as God led and lived by faith.


Connecting people to God to find and live out their purpose.


We go as God leads and live by faith.

We believe there is a spiritual battle that we are in.  God is calling us to prepare a church for that battle.  To equip people to fight as the Israelites did at Tekoa and Jesus did on the cross.  They fought with worship and not weapons.  Jesus fought by loving and laying down his life and told his disciples to lay down their swords.  We fight not for victory, but from a place of victory (Romans 8:37). Our purpose is worship and we want to equip people to live that out by sharing the good news of Jesus with them and helping them live a life of worship to God.

We are a church where everyone is welcome and known.  People are valued for who they are and what their background is.  A community where everyone can share and grow on their faith journey and be a maturing disciple of Jesus.  As we gather, the presence of God changes people so that they can be encouraged and ignited to live out their purpose: to love God and make disciples.
