We believe real life only happens in a relationship with Jesus.  


The best decision we ever made was to follow Jesus.  We’re regular people moved by God’s extraordinary grace.  

We are a church eager to experience passionate worship, authentic connection, and to grow in our love of God.  

We love our local community and want to help every person take a NEXT STEP with Jesus.

We are made for this!
When so much competes for our attention, worshiping God
refocuses us.
Renewed, we’re ready for a
NEXT STEP with Jesus.
Life is better together.
Where life separates and isolates, Christ connects. Life change happens best in relationship.
We take our
NEXT STEP with Jesus.
Our world is bigger than just us. Love listens and acts.
ServeTeams partner with local and global ministries
to love and take a
NEXT STEP with Jesus.
We have amazing news to share. Jesus opened the door to relationship with God. We were made for this! We can’t wait to
help others take a
NEXT STEP with Jesus.

We have not one but TWO podcast segments on our Christ Church Gastonia podcast page?
1. “Best of Intentions” hosted by Pastor Matt and his wife Kerri
We all want great relationships, whether its with a few friends, our family or a life-long partner. We have the best of intentions. Then why are these relationships so difficult? Join Matt & Kerri Morris in an honest conversation about how to have great relationships by focusing on the best intentions.
2. “You Can’t Preach That” hosted by Pastor Matt
This podcast explores those often avoided, strange, or even embarrassing truths from Scripture. Some things just seem wrong to say in church. For instance, “Did Jesus ever have bad breath?” Find out why these silly (and serious) topics might really matter for you.
