A Safe Place

Everything we do here at Heart of the Bay Christian Center is completely based on God’s Word, the Bible, and has meaning and purpose. Our praise and worship is often expressive and vibrant, yet sensitive and reverent. Our teachings are relevant and edifying, bringing hope and encouragement.

When we gather for worship, we always welcome the presence of God to work in our midst in ways that will edify and encourage everyone. The Bible teaches that there is freedom in public exhortation, but it must always be given in a spirit of love, self-control, and humility. When the Holy Spirit is truly present, all things are done decently and in order (1 Corinthians 14).

We trust that you will feel safe with us. Whether you need a caring environment or a challenging one, the people and our ministries here are for you!
