Knowing Jesus, and Making Him Known


Regathering - Sunday, May 24, 2020

COVID 19 - Live Streaming on Facebook

After many weeks of online only service, we will be regathering as a body at Mercy Ridge Community Church next Sunday, May 24th! We will be following the recommendations for social distancing and CDC COVID-19 guidelines. Look for a shorter service with additional spacing; however, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to come together.  We will continue to broadcast on Facebook Live, so if you are elderly, immunocompromised, or just uncomfortable gathering just yet, we encourage you to stay home and watch the services.

Our Beliefs

We believe that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.  He gave his life so that we can be reconciled to God.  Through the Holy Spirit, the believer is called to be a light to the world until the day of Jesus' return.

Baptism 1 March 2020

We rejoice with Shayla Volker as she follows the Lord's command to be baptized! Shayla was saved in the Walton Kroger's parking lot on February 9, 2020! 


Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 

         -Romans 6:3-4 ESV

Current Series:

The Book of Acts

As a launch point for the year 2020, we will be discussing God's vision for the church and our own lives.  This examination of the Book of Acts will focus on the restatement of the Great Commission in Acts 1:8; the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in the anointing of the Church and the individual believer; and the form, fashion, and fervor of church life. This walk through the Book of Acts will enrich our church, our personal walk with Jesus, and hopefully make us more effective missionaries in our own communities.

Our Core Values


Christ Centered

We seek to honor the Lord Jesus with everything that we say or do.

People Focused

We are here for the purpose of ministering to people and declaring the hope that we have in Jesus.

Biblically Grounded

We believe in the inerrancy of scripture and look to it as our sole source of doctrine.

Generosity Committed

The Lord has blessed us greatly and we desire to be a blessing to others.

Kingdom Oriented

Everything belongs to the Lord and we are here for the purpose of glorifying Him and expanding the Kingdom.

Intentionally Discipled

We believe that disciples are made, via teaching, mentorship, and actively participating in ministry.

Baptism - Elijah Mann 23 Sept 2018

Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward change. As Elijah is immersed in the baptismal pool, we are reminded of the Lord's death, burial, and resurrection.  Jesus's death on the cross paid for our sin and made way for us to be in a right relationship with God.

We rejoice in Elijah Mann's public profession of faith in Jesus Christ a few weeks ago and commend his obedience to follow the Lord's command of believer's baptism.  Elijah, may the Lord bless you and embolden you to proclaim the gospel!
