Why We Exist

We're here to help people Know God, Find Freedom, Discover their Purpose, and Make a Difference.

Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, you’re welcome here. Our hope is to give you a place where you experience a fresh, enjoyable connection to God and a community of people.

We keep our focus simple so we can have the biggest impact possible. Everything we do as a church is filtered through our focus on helping every person live the full life for which God created all of us.

Know God

God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship. Whether you’re new to faith, have questions, or have been a Christ-follower for a long time, our services are a safe place to learn more about what it means to know God and grow closer to Him.

Find Freedom

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our lives to help us in the journey. Connecting with others in Small Groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.

Discover Purpose

We’re all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose. Only Believe’s Growth Track is designed to help us take steps in the important process of discovering our purpose.

Make a Difference

This is God’s ultimate plan for our lives to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. Through Only Believe’s Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and the community.

Leadership

Pastor Peter Doseck

My wife and I began our life together as most couples do. We were in love, and we were creating a home. In time we had a child, and everything seemed perfect. We had a house, security, and peace – everything the world was striving for. What else could we need?

Unfortunately, as time went on boredom overtook me, and the discontent of familiarity set in. I began to disrespect my wife, and she responded to me in the same way. Our discontent turned to feelings of disgust, and the value we had placed on one another in the beginning soon faded away. Of course, our daughter was caught in the middle of the mess, and she had to hear all of the devaluations, tearing down, and destroying one another through the negativity that went on in our house every day.

With my home life a wreck, I spent more and more time with my friends who wanted to drink, fish, hunt, and do all of the things that I liked to do. I was closer to those men than I was to my wife and child, but it didn’t bother me. I was foolishly unaware that everything I had was on the verge of slipping out of my grasp.

Pastor Phyllis Doseck

I grew up the daughter of a part-time evangelist, and my father made sure we were in church every time the doors were open. Unfortunately, the church I grew up in had very strict rules about outward things rather than issues of the heart, so I eventually rebelled against the beliefs and rules of my church and my father, and I turned away from God.

Soon after marrying Peter in 1971, our marriage began to fail because neither of us was saved. I tried to return to God, but my mistaken ideas about who He was and how He looked at me made it difficult to reconnect.

I went to work at a local factory, and a Christian co-worker began to witness to me. She told me that God looked on the heart, not on the outward appearance, and I began to see how the fruit of her life was so different than my own. I knew she believed that God really loved her, and my heart began to soften, in hopes that maybe He could love me, too.
