What We Believe


We’re normal people who happen to have an incredible faith: that Jesus is who He says He is, and that following Him makes life better—and makes us better.

Most of our friends are tired of seeing people who cling to the rules of religiosity without living out the transforming message of Jesus. We are too. At Soundview, we don’t have a lot of space for the rules and ritual often associated with “religion.” We believe Jesus came to show us a different way; a better way, full of freedom and joy. So instead of a long list of bullet points and catchy jargon, we think what we actually believe is revealed in what we do and how we live it out.

We welcome you to experience faith in Jesus as a journey and as a way of life. We are not always going to agree—but what family does? We invite you to belong and share your stories, talents, and friendship, without regard to race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or physical abilities, and to join us as we seek to discover the meaning of the gospel for our days and our time.

You don’t have to believe us or agree with us, but we invite you to come and see.
