Mariners Church is a thriving community. We’re ordinary people from all backgrounds, and life experiences, courageously trusting Him to do the extraordinary. Simply put, we’re trusting Him to do what we can’t – heal, transform, renew, forgive, provide, and sustain. Through our stories, He is glorified, lives are changed, and our communities are impacted. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, Mariners has a place for you. Our vision is to INSPIRE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW JESUS AND FEARLESSLY CHANGE THE WORLD and we hope you will join us in this calling.
We believe it is vital to experience Jesus in community. That’s why we gather to celebrate Him in our churches each weekend. All of our experiences are designed with one idea – to draw you closer to God. Whether through music, story, video, teaching or response time, we strive to create space for life-changing encounters with Him. Our hope is that you would be encouraged, challenged and renewed with a sense of His great love for you, wherever you are on your spiritual journey.
God has called us to serve those in need.
Outreach Ministries is committed to doing ministry the way Jesus did, and having the greatest Kingdom impact possible. We aim to mobilize the Whole church, with the power of the Whole gospel and change the Whole world.
With an understanding of true poverty, we facilitate life change through relationship-based ministry with a strategic focus on servant leadership.
