Our Mission

To reach and to provoke people to be passionate believers of Jesus Christ. 

What can I expect?!

One of the greatest compliments we received is when someone decides to call Catalyst Church "their home".

From the time you step through the doors, we want you to feel at home. Grab a coffee, kick off your shoes (but only if your socks match, we're kidding) and enjoy the service. We start out prayer service from 9:45 - 10:15am,  as such, we intentionally create an environment to allow you to open your heart and clear your mind so that you're ready to receive what God has in store for you. If you have a love-one or even yourself, needing prayer, this is a great time to come so we can pray alongside you.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

Matthew 18:20

Following prayer service, our Sunday Morning Worship starts at 10:30am. Service begins with prayer, immediately followed by praise and worship. We believe that we serve a real God that showers us with real love that can't be compared. In return, we show our love in one of many ways, through our praise and worship.

Praise and Worship is followed by a sound, practical biblical teaching broken into a series over the course of the month. Each month, there is a new series that you don't want to miss out. Each sermon is also translated in Spanish, as we are 100% bi-lingual. However, if you miss a service...you can always download the latest sermon.

At Catalyst Church, we strive to be an Agent of Change and help others get excited about how God will “Change Hearts, Change Lives" and found a new path in their spiritual walk with God! We look forward to seeing you...but don't take our word for it, come see for yourself!
