In September 2009, a group of 40 people were sent out from Modesto Covenant Church to start a new church in east Modesto. Our goal was to start a church to reach people who had left church, or had not gone to church, but were looking for God and fun and something deeper. We started weekly services just before Easter, 2010. We met for 5 years at Enochs High School, then 6 months at Orchard Elementary, before God opened up a permanent location for our church. Our church has grown to over 350 coming regularly, with great ministries for kids, youth, college, and adults. We have incredible events and we serve locally and around the world. We have just started our story, but God is doing great things!
I am so glad you are at our website, and I would love to have you join us on a Sunday morning. We meet at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00am each week. The teaching is relevant. The worship is energetic. The people are authentic and friendly. Your kids will love it. Our Sunday gatherings reflect our heart to lead people into a life changing and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We invite you to check us out and have a great time with our church. As we say, “This ain’t your mama’s church!” It is life changing, and a blast – really!.

Bible-centered and relevant preaching
You won’t fall asleep during these sermons! We want to invite people to a true relationship with Jesus Christ, and to challenge them to grow deeper and share that relationship with others. You’ll think, laugh, and be inspired to live what you learn.
Passionate, exciting and honest worship
Our church wants to have fun and truly worship Jesus with our worship experiences – and to make all of life an act of worship. We will worship God through music, creative arts, and even media. Our worship is a place for broken people to find hope in Christ.
Excellent ministry for Kids, Youth, and College/Career
We care about the next generation! Our children and students will learn the Bible, be called to live a personal faith, and have a lot of fun! Yes our church is fun! No more parents dragging kids to church – the kids might just be dragging the parents!
Supportive and encouraging Life Groups
Our church loves people! Our Life Groups are places where you can grow and serve in connection with others, where you can be yourself, care for others, goof around, and go deep. And we eat together a lot, too!
Opportunities to use your God-given gifts to make a difference
You are gifted! God is calling us to serve in the church and in the world – crossing our comfort zones, impacting lives, sharing the good news of Jesus and working for God’s Kingdom and justice.
