Who We Are
Reveal is a group of ordinary people from all walks of life doing our best to follow and live out the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Not “Churchy”? Neither are we. Dress casual, be yourself. We welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. We don’t expect you to agree with everything we do, we just ask you’re open to the idea that there is a God who loves and pursues you.
Bring your friends! Sundays are safe. No church lingo or bad coffee, and we won’t make you stand up and introduce yourself.
What We Believe
Here at Reveal Church we believe in God, the one we read about in the Bible. He is the one who created everything, including us. The most important thing we can know about him is that he is good, every day, all the time, even when life feels busted. God created us in his image, with creativity, emotions, and the ability to make choices – just like him.
And it’s this choice that gets us in trouble so often. We can choose to order our lives in a way that honors God, but sometimes we don’t. Even our small decisions impact our standing with him. To put a name to these poor choices, we sin. Every single one of us sins, and that will never change. At Reveal Church we are not looking to become perfect humans, because it will never happen.
Yet God remains perfect. We can read in the Bible that he doesn’t even like to have sin in his presence. So clearly we have a serious problem, one that we cannot solve. God loves us, but hates sin. Left to our own devices, we are unable to bridge the gap between God and us.
But God did not leave us without hope, distant and alone in our sin. He made a choice to love us anyway, and he designed the only way we could have a close relationship with him. He sent his only son Jesus down to earth. Jesus lived a perfect life, one without sin. Then he died an unjust death on a cross. His death paid the penalty for our sin and paved the way for us to have relationship with God again.
We only have to choose to accept the death of Jesus on the cross as payment for our mistakes. That’s when our new life begins, one where we learn what it looks like to live the way God intended when he first created us. There will be questions along the way, and we might not agree on all the answers, but we will figure it out, together.
Values are like a GPS unit, guiding and leading any organization in the desired direction. Too often values degenerate into sentimental ideas or mushy words on a plaque hanging in the break room. When these values are hazy or undefined, momentum is replaced by confusion and frustration. If this continues, eventually people start losing interest. As a church, we too have values. But they are more than heartwarming phrases in fancy fonts.
While Reveal places a value on many things, we have 10 Hills We Die On. They represent the core elements of how we go about our work. They are the practices that permeate everything we do.
