Spokane Christian Church

Welcome to Spokane Christian Church! We are a family of believers intent on following Jesus Christ by applying the Bible to our lives. We welcome all ages, nationalities, and walks of life.
Our small groups meet regularly in homes across the Spokane area as well as Cheney, Chattaroy and Post Falls. In our groups, we have fun together and build close spiritual relationships that help us walk with God.
Our unity is built on reliable teachings. With God's word from the Scriptures, we equip one another to teach and help others. Whether you are looking for a solid grasp of the core principles or healing and spiritual relationships or deepening your walk with Christ, we would be glad to arrange personal Bible studies for you.

May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23 NIV

Reading the Bible

GOD: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We believe in and surrender our lives to the one God who made the heavens and earth and who breathed life into humanity. We worship and praise the Father who spoke the world into existence, Jesus, the Son, who died upon the cross to redeem us from sin, and the Holy Spirit who is the seal of our salvation.

Our eternal purpose is to know God and to glorify him as God, and let our life shine so others will see God. Our devotion and ultimate loyalties are to the Father, who is over all and in all and through all; to Jesus the Son, who has been declared both Lord and Christ; and to the Holy Spirit, who lives in us and empowers us to overcome the workings of the sinful nature (Acts 2:22-36, Romans 8:12-28).

The cornerstone of our faith is our belief in Jesus Christ. Everything we hold dear in our faith originates from his words and his way of life (John 3:16, John 12:47-48, 1 John 2:5-6).

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is sharp, powerful, effective, challenging, exposing, and encouraging when it is revered, studied, preached, taught, and obeyed because it is from our Creator and therefore relevant for all generations. (1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 4:1-5, Hebrews 4:12-13)

All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth." —Colossians 1:6

2002

We thank God for those who began our ministry here and for the years of support from our sister congregation in Seattle until we became well established. We began when 22 people from the Puget Sound Area in Washington and from Missoula, Montana moved by faith to plant the church. The work officially started with our inaugural service on September 1, 2002 (Labor Day Weekend). We are particularly grateful Mark and Annie McCune who led the church for the first five years followed by Jermaine and Stefanie Peacock, who came from the Kansas City Church of Christ, and led us for another five years. Chris Schwartzenberger is now our Lead Minister alongside Mark & Annie as well as Carl & Stephanie Sullivan.

Rather than a one lead couple, we now have a Ministry Leadership Team to support the growth of our congregation. It includes both paid and self-supporting staff. Part of their role is to provide inspiration and training for our incredible volunteer small group leaders and for the coordinators who manage our children's classes and various other needs. Finally, we have a Board of Directors who ensure that church decisions and actions meet the requirements of ethics and laws and that we can continue to financially support the ecclesiastical leadership and church missions.

We are an interdependent church, in regard to relationships, partnering with churches that are like-minded throughout the world. In our Northwest Family of Churches, we join together regularly to host the Northwest Youth Camp and other regional conferences and training events to further strengthen and unite our congregations. We are also excited to stay connected as friends or family often visit from those congregations or when their college students come to our local schools.

We need prayers for courage to boldly make God's love known to those that live throughout this region and throughout the world. Every member is expected to partner with Jesus to take part in this glorious co-mission. There are tons of opportunities to serve; loving up on our guests, getting involved in personal Bible studies, frequently sharing our faith, helping support church plantings and various outreach projects. If you would like to join us in this mission to win the this area for Christ and would like more information, choose "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page, and send an email for our ministry staff.
