Thanks for checking out The Refinery. A group of Christ followers who are trying to make an impact on their community for Jesus Christ.
Just to set your mind at ease... there are no perfect people at The Refinery. That’s why our name is so important. One definition of refine is “bringing crude material to purity.” Well, that’s what we are about... letting God refine us.
Our casual and friendly atmosphere will help you relax and join in at your own pace.

At The Refinery it is our mission to WIN people to Jesus Christ, TRAIN believers to become disciples, and SEND disciples out to impact the world.
What We Believe:
There is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and each possesses all of the attributes of God. God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and everything in it.
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is our Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to demonstrate His defeat of sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return again to earth to reign as our powerful King.
About The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is one with God the Father and Jesus Christ. Those who accept Christ as their Savior will receive the Holy Spirit to live inside them. The Holy Spirit serves as our comforter, guide and advocate. The Holy Spirit is given to Christians and provides guidance in living, an understanding of the Bible, and prayerfully intercedes for them.
About The Bible
Our foundation is based firmly upon the Bible as our final authority on Christian beliefs and as a guide to living. The Bible is divinely inspired by God, without error, given to man so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.
All people are made in the image of God and were created to live the adventure of following Jesus Christ. Although people have tremendous potential for good, we also have the freedom to do evil. Our disobedience toward God is called “sin” and that separates all humanity from God.
Salvation is not something that can be purchased or earned. It is a free gift from God provided by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and is received through faith. It is available to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. That faith is expressed through repentance of sin and baptism by immersion.
People were created to exist forever. Every person will either exist eternally in union with God in heaven through following Jesus Christ or eternally separated from God in hell due to our refusal to follow Him.
Commitment to Excellence
We will perform all of our duties and programs with excellence, believing that God deserves nothing but our best.
Heart for Evangelism
We will keep our focus and efforts on those who don’t know about or have not accepted Christ’s love.
We will build authentic, meaningful relationships with those that we come in contact with.
We will live our lives and perform our duties with the utmost integrity.
We will place others above ourselves, modeling Christ’s example.
We will function as a team believing that we are better as a group than as individuals.
