About Us

Spirit of Truth Church is not your traditional ritual filled church, but rather a contemporary one where our praise is energetic, worship intimate, preaching and teaching powerful, and service to our community and the world passionate. We believe it is important that our church is diverse and life is fulfilling. So we intentionally create a welcoming atomosphere for all of Gods people: no matter their culture and an exciting and celebrated atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is welcomed to move freely among us to fulfill our lives.
