Welcome to Coastal Community Church
Thank you for being our guest this morning. We hope that you enjoy your time of corporate worship with us. At Coastal we believe in the power and purpose of the local church to continue Jesus’s mission and ministry on earth by developing authentic followers of Jesus Christ. Our foundation rests on the authority of Scripture as the inspired Word of God and the belief in the one true and living God, revealed to us through the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our mission is to develop authentic followers of Jesus Christ by connecting to God and others through corporate worship, growing together in small groups, and serving in a ministry and mission of Coastal Community Church.

You may be asking this question if this is your first time at Coastal. Visiting a church can be a little awkward...a different facility, different people, different programs...So we want to make it easy to navigate. This is how you know what is going on and where you fit.
