WHO we are.

We are a church plant seeking to love, serve, and share the whole gospel of Jesus Christ with people in Pickerington and the surrounding areas. Our identity as a church is shaped by five core values: genuine worship, Biblical teaching, constant prayer, authentic community, and faithful service.


Maranatha is an Aramaic word that means, "Come, Lord." As the early church faced intense persecution, believers in Jesus Christ found comfort in the promise of Christ’s return. The greeting "Maranatha" became a common encouragement among Christians during times of hardship. The writer of the book of Hebrews refers to the Christian’s life on earth as an exile. As we endure the effects of a broken world we long for our heavenly home. We long for the end of suffering and sin. We long for Christ to return and establish his kingdom. We long to be united with God. Until that day, the cry, “Maranatha,” compels us to live urgently on mission, encouraging others to come to the Lord and find the joy, purpose, and life they long for.
