Our Mission

LEAD You to Connect with Christ,

EQUIP You to Live Your Faith and

SEND You to Impact Your World.


We know that the decision to follow Christ is a process for each individual.  Our desire is to make it as easy as possible for people to make that journey.  We have a number of entry points (outreach presentations, children’s programs, community involvement, etc.) where people can come to church for the first time.  We strongly encourage our members to invite their family and friends because we know that over 85% of people who attend a church service go the first time because someone personally invited them.  We also have a class called What's Next? where we share our history, beliefs and ways to get connected.  Our goal is to have a personal contact with every person who is new to the church.


We want to let people know that there is a God in heaven who created this world and loves them.  They can get to know Him through His Son Jesus Christ.  After people choose to follow Him, they need to grow in their faith. We provide resources in a variety of areas so you can mature in your walk with God.  At Scottsdale Christian Church, we promote spiritual disciplines for you to be able to grow in your walk with God.


We should not be growing just to help ourselves.  We need to go outside of the doors of the church and get involved in the lives of the people in our homes, our community and our world.  Our desire is to help make an impact in and around this community.  This involves serving in our homes, at work and in our community.  For some people it includes short term Mission Trips.  For others, it is preparing for a life of Christian service.

Our Beliefs

At Scottsdale Christian Church we believe the following...

We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1, Matthew 3:16-17

We believe God is the creator of man and all things.
Genesis 1:1, Acts 17:24-28

We believe Jesus Christ is God’s only Son and the Savior of the world.
John 3:16, John 20:24-31

We believe the Holy Spirit dwells within every Christian.
John 14:16-20, John 16:5-15

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all matters of faith.
2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12
We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned, and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:23, Acts 4:12
We believe that salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ when we are baptized. The Bible teaches the pattern to follow to receive Jesus as Savior is to believe in Christ as God’s Son and Savior of the world, repent of personal sin, confess Jesus as Lord, and be immersed in baptism.
Acts 2:38, Romans 6:17, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9
We believe death seals the eternal destiny of each person. The saved will inherit eternal life; the unsaved, eternal separation from God.
Daniel 12:2, John 6:47

We believe the church is the body of Christ consisting of all
Christians in the world.
1 Corinthians 12:12- 13, Colossians 1:18, 24

We believe it is God’s plan for elders to lead the local church.
Acts 20:28, 1 Peter 5:1-4
