As culture changes, one thing never will: every person needs Jesus. But how will the generations come to experience His incredible love in a society that is increasingly skeptical of religious institutions?
If this shift in culture means it’s less likely that new people will come to our churches, we must take that love to them. This world must become a place where Jesus is known because of the actions of His followers.
Orchard exists to make this vision a reality. We inspire Christ-followers to launch and lead creative initiatives serving those in need.
Glorifying Jesus Christ is the main goal of all that we do. Every aspect of Orchard ultimately exists to serve others and introduce them personally to Jesus Christ.
Prayer is multifaceted communication with God – upward, inward, and outward – and it is an intentional component of all of our ministries. Prayer is the tool God has given us to communicate with him for our personal growth and for clarity concerning our service in the world.
We serve, not out of a sense of duty or obligation, but because God loves us: we are able to receive his love, and we want to pass that love on.
God creates people in his image with unique gifts, talents, and abilities. We believe ministry is most effective when it is done around the ways God has created His people. It is by leaning in to the ways God has created us that we have the potential to shine our light the brightest in the world.
We are all leaders and we all have the potential to make an impact in our communities.
The common bond for the people of Orchard is our faith in Jesus Christ. Our theological foundations include, but are not limited to the following statements of belief.
