Freedom in Christ church is a non-denominational body of Christian believers joined together by the common cause of love for God and passion to serve Him while loving each other and sharing the good news of His love with all people. Our goal is to lovingly assist others in finding and experiencing freedom in Jesus Christ as we ourselves endeavor to become spiritually mature Christians.

As we represent Jesus Christ, we strive to always represent Him with love, “be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to be come angry,” remain faithful to Scripture and to love God above all things.

A culturally and racially diverse body of mature Christian disciples who

through the power of Holy Spirit see the world through the eyes of Jesus Christ, “living” our faith, worshipping God, fulfilling the purpose of “the church”   
and eagerly looking forward to the return of Jesus Christ.

God loves all people, regardless of who they are or what they may or may not have done and He desires everyone to experience His love forever! We are tools used by God in fulfilling His desire.

We are not limited by geographical location or human abilities because we fully depend upon God’s power working in and through us to reveal His love and the good news of Jesus Christ to all people.


We believe there is only one God and that God created everything that exists, visible and invisible. (Colossians 1:15-20) God is perfect, complete, all knowing, unlimited in love, unlimited in power, not confined by time or space, and desires to have a relationship with every individual. We believe that “all scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

The human race was created for God’s glory but has failed to meet God’s requirements for a personal and eternal relationship (Romans 3:23), therefore putting us in a position of eternal separation from God. Because of God’s great love for us, this separation is bridged when we meet God’s requirements by accepting the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, as the full payment for our failure. (John 3:16)

As believers we rejoice that God The Spirit lives within us to love, direct, correct support and empower our lives so that we may love God with our complete selves and tangibly love others as if they were ourselves as we live and share the good news of Jesus Christ (John 16:5-15).



Pastor John Nelson has earned his under grad B.A. Degree in sociology and his Master of Arts degree in Theology. He is our Senior Pastor and the founding pastor of Freedom In Christ Church.

Pastor John has a great love for all people and believes that the local church must focus on worshiping and loving God, finding people who have not heard of Jesus Christ and sharing the good news of His salvation with them; encouraging and assisting
believers to become spiritually mature and tangibly demonstrate God’s great love in their everyday living toward all people.

Pastor John strongly proclaims that “faith,” to be meaningful and helpful in this life, must be expressed in everyday living via trusting God completely. “How we live and relate to God and others on an everyday basis is strongly indicative of not only our faith, but also our definition of who God is.This faith and trust must be executed in complete harmony with God’s Word without compromise.”
