Our Weekend Services
Our in person service times are 9:30 & 11:15am and our live stream is available for the 11:15 service only. If you arrive early to our in person services, you’ll have no problem getting a seat of your choice. If you arrive a little late and the room looks full, don’t worry . . . we’ll help direct you to an open spot.
When we meet together it’s our desire to prepare a place and set an environment for God to be worshiped. We want to build a doorway into the presence of God. Worship is our visible and verbal response to all that God is and what He’s done. Each week we will worship, through song, in Spirit and in Truth. Each week Pastor Marco will preach unapologetically from God’s Word with the intent to feed and nourish our lives and ignite passion for Jesus. The bottom line for us is that our weekend services are designed to point you to Jesus. It’s not about the stage or the lights or the talent of the musicians and vocalists. It’s about Jesus.
What to Wear
There is no dress code at Radiant. We believe God cares more about the condition of your heart than your outward appearance. Feel free to dress up, or come in jeans and a favorite t-shirt; whatever makes you comfortable.
You’ll notice a lot of people in the lobby area and throughout the building wearing a black lanyard. Those people are a part of Team Radiant (our serving and volunteering platform) and they are there to help you. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they can find someone who does. There are always leaders and/or our pastor nearby.
We currently offer our Nursery (ages 0-3) for both services and our PreK-Kinder and 1st-4th grade for our 11:15 am service. Pre-registration is required. As you arrive at our building, head to the left toward our common area where you will find our “Radiant Kids” check-in booth. If you are dropping your children off before a weekend experience, give yourself extra time to get them checked in properly. Check-in opens 15 minutes before services and closes 20 minutes after the service starts. At Radiant, we use a special labeling system to assure the safety and monitoring of your child.
We take your kids safety very seriously by doing full background checks on every single person serving with Radiant Kids. Our security volunteers will monitor the area during the service as well. All children in our classes are cared for by loving members of Team Radiant. Our classes tend to fill up quickly and some are not available every weekend. However, busy bags with coloring pages, crayons, and stickers are always available for children who will be joining their parents in the sanctuary. You can click below to pre-register your child(ren) for our weekend services every Friday at noon!
Because we’ve been given so much and are recipients of God’s goodness and generosity, we give back to Him. We do it, not out of duty or obligation, but out of an overflow of thanksgiving. That’s why every week we tithe and give cheerfully. We’ve chosen to make giving a purposeful action each week while in services by highlighting the several ways you can give and what God is doing through our gifts. Giving isn’t something we want from people but something we want FOR people. Those who call Radiant home give regularly, sacrificially and joyfully.
Mission and Vision
What We Do
Our vision is to create an environment where people can encounter the presence and love of God. We believe that when people encounter God, their lives are forever changed!
Why We Exist
We exist to introduce people to life with Jesus Christ. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who are seeking the Kingdom first, growing in community and engaged in mission.
Who We Are
We are a “city set on a hill” (Matthew 5:14).
What We Believe
It is the testimony of both the Old and New Testaments and of the Christian Church that God is both One and Triune. The biblical revelation testifies that there is only one God and that He is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things, and He created the universe in love. He created man in His own image for fellowship and called man back to Himself through Christ after the rebellion and fall of man. Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures – God and man – in one person. The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and giver of life, who is active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The continual infilling with the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We affirm that the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, is alone the only infallible, inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, final and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.
The Word of God declares clearly that salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is affected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification) and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Savior (regeneration). The new life in Christ includes the privileges of adoption and inheritance in the kingdom of God’s beloved Son.
Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus as personal Savior. Healing – body, soul and spirit – and all of God’s provisions for His saints are provided for in the atonement, but these must be appropriated.
The Christian Life
We believe that the Scriptures portray the life of the saint in this world to be one of balance between what is imputed to us as Christians and what is imparted to us according to our faith and maturity. Hence, God’s provision for His children is total, and the promises are final and forever. The shortcomings of the individual and of the Church are because of the still-progressing maturing work of God. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests and warfare against a spiritual enemy. For those abiding in Christ until their deaths of His return, the promises of eternal blessing in the presence of God are assured. To remain faithful through all circumstances of life requires dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a willingness to die to personal desires and passions.
We believe that the church consists of all those who truly believes in Jesus Christ and His atoning death and who trust in Him as their Lord and Savior. We believe that the local church is the vehicle of God working in the earth to extend and establish His Kingdom.
The Word of God enjoins on the Church two perpetual ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ, reserved for those who are believers. Baptism is the outward sign of what God had already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It is identification with Jesus and is affected in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Communion is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again; it is a sign of our participation in Him.
Marriage is a covenant relationship between a man and a woman, established by God as the foundation of family and human society reflecting the nature of Christ’s sacrificial love and devotion for His bride, the Church.
The Sanctity of Human Life
We believe all human life is created by and from the hand of God and is therefore precious. Man and Woman are created in the image of God and as a result are holy unto Him. From the moment of conception, God forms and fashions us into unique creations and He controls our destinies. As image bearers of God, Man and Woman have inherent worth. Mankind’s worth is further demonstrated by the incarnation of Jesus Christ and His sacrificial death and resurrection so that we may receive forgiveness for our sins and be reconciled to Him. Our bodies are described as a temple for the Holy Spirit, that is to be presented as a holy and living sacrifice. We are called to honor children as a blessing, honor each other in relationships, respect our elders and hold all life as sacred.
Final Judgement and Reward
We affirm the bodily, personal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the saints, the millennium and the final judgment. The final judgment will determine the eternal status of both the saints and the unbelievers, determined by their relationship to Jesus Christ. We affirm with the Bible the final state of the new heavens and the new earth.
