Is The Sanctuary a Part of a Denomination?

We’re glad to be associated with the Church of God whose International offices are located in Cleveland, TN. We believe there is real value in being connected to a larger body of Christians. In fact, we think it is the biblical model established in the New Testament (Acts 15). Being a part of a denomination provides The Sanctuary with accountability, encouragement, and opportunities to minister together with like-minded churches.

What are the Worship Services Like?

You will experience exciting worship, relevant and practical messages and have the opportunity to respond to God.

What Do You Have for Kids?

We love seeing children enjoy coming to church and loving God! We have age-specific nursery and school-age classes available for children, 6-weeks through 5th grade. While parents are experiencing the life-giving worship and teaching of The Sanctuary’s main service, we are giving their children the exact same experience! We believe the Bible should never be boring, good leaders always care, and worship can be really fun! Our purpose is to guide children to put their faith in Jesus, and to teach them who God is and how He wants them to live.

What About Youth?

If you are in Middle School or High School, IGNITE Student Ministry is the place to be every Wednesday night from 7PM – 8:30PM. IGNITE students meet for an incredible time of worship with a student-led band, life-changing messages and an opportunity to build friendships with other students who love Jesus.
