That’s probably why we make such a close family, because we’re all a work in progress and seek to grow in grace. We’re not evaluating you—when you walk in, we’re glad to see you! Don’t worry about having to measure up or fit in. Our church family is diverse, so fitting in isn’t an issue. Come as you are and let God do the changing!
We’re not very religious.
Honestly, religion has let a lot of people down. Religious structures and systems are confusing, complicated, and disconnected from real life. We would love to help you move from “religion” into an authentic relationship with God through Jesus Christ. If you’re new to it all, that’s ok, we would love to show you where to start!
We focus on truth.
There are a lot of things you could talk about when people get together. At Uptown, we’re committed to sharing the life-changing truth of God’s Word. You won’t hear sermons about politics or personal opinions. In every service the Bible is opened and clearly proclaimed, because it is undeniably true and perfectly relevant to every life.
We’re normal people.
Church people often come off as clique-ish, artificial and argumentative. That’s not who we are. Uptown is known as a friendly, caring church. We’re like you—working hard, desiring healthy relationships, looking for encouragement and glad to have friends who share our values and faith in Jesus Christ.

Church for the skeptic or the saint.
Whether you believe in Jesus or not, have an open mind and come hear his message from a clear and practical perspective. Investigate who Jesus really is and discover what most religions never tell you about the Bible.
