I’m new here
Welcome to Passion Church! We are a non-denominational, Bible-teaching church. We are an authentic, biblical community of people from diverse ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds who are celebrating life together. We are growing in full devotion to Christ as we pray for each other, worship God together, study the Bible, encourage one another, share our faith, and serve our community.
At our church, it's not about the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, your political affiliation, or your income bracket—it's all about Jesus! We believe that the purpose of life is to discover and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including healing and prophecy, are available today for the edification of God's people. Where the Spirit of the Lord, there is freedom, but that doesn't mean our services are a free-for-all. The Bible teaches us not to quench the Holy Spirit, but at the same time, to use the gifts in order and in love, ever mindful of unbelievers in our midst. We crave the genuine move of the Holy Spirit without the hype and carnival show.
Our goal is not only to help you and your family become fully devoted disciples of Christ, but to help you become disciple-makers who win people to Christ and, in turn, help them become disciple-makers. We don't want you to come to our church to watch a show; we want to help you get into the game and make a difference for eternity.
Passion Church revolves around Jesus' two greatest commands: love God and love people (Matthew 22:37-39). We are learning how to live and love like Jesus one day at a time. One of our core values is that relationships are the essence of life. We are a non-judgmental church where you can take your masks off, get real with people, and develop meaningful relationships. Even when it's not easy, we try to treat each other like family.
Our services typically last about an hour and a half. We start out with high-energy praise and then we move into intimate worship. During the third song, we invite people who need prayer to come forward so our leaders can pray for them. After the worship time, we allow room for prophecies or words of encouragement before we release K-5 children to their classes. Then we spend a few minutes greeting each other.
We then take some time to honor God with our tithes and offerings before we get into the teaching of God's Word, with the main emphasis being on practical life application. We finish every service with an altar call to give people an opportunity to get right with God. Afterwards, we encourage people to hang out and connect with each other.
Whether you are a mature Christ-follower, a new believer, or just investigating Christianity, you will feel right at home at Passion. Come just as you are. Dress is casual and the music is contemporary. Coffee and refreshments are available before and after service at Guest Central. We would like to meet you personally after service and welcome you to our family.
Come celebrate life with us this Sunday. You will experience God's tangible presence, learn how to apply the Bible to your daily life, and leave feeling loved, valued, and inspired.
Life is better with passion,
Pastors Brian & Mercy Alarid

Kids matter at Passion Church. Our children’s ministry is devoted to creating interactive learning experiences that awaken children’s desire for the presence and power of God in their lives.
Your children will build great friendships and have the time of their life! Our highly qualified staff will make them feel right at home.
Our curriculum teaches children about God’s Word and His unfailing love. They learn how to live for Christ in an age-appropriate way.
Starting with infants and toddlers, Christ's love for children is demonstrated by providing a safe and clean environment in which the children can sing and play.
Two- and three-year-olds begin learning Bible stories, as well as the concepts of friendship and helping by observing the actions of their teacher.
Four- and five-year-olds expand their Bible knowledge during group programs that include relevant Bible teaching, creative drama, and high-energy music.
From kindergarten through fifth grade, children continue to apply the Bible directly to their lives. They often participate in role-plays and "What would you do?" discussions in small groups.
The motto of Passion Church is “celebrating life together.” We believe relationships are the essence of life, and that life is best enjoyed in authentic community.
Our life groups enable members, visitors, and people from the community to build lasting relationships and celebrate life together. Life groups are a place where you can take your masks off and get real with God and other people.
