You might be wondering what it's really like at Sweetwater? Simply stated, we're all about Jesus. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. We don't care how you're dressed, just come as you are. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable.

Jesus is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

Student Ministry

Our Student ministry is affectionately called "Project 412", Why? We take the idea that students shouldn't "let anyone look down on them because of your youth" (1 Timothy 4:12) very seriously. As result of that, we teach our students how to live a life that is grounded in a lifestyle that is foreign to this culture.

Midweek Bible Study

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Sweetwater a great one!

Sweetwater meets every weekend and offers service times for Adults, Children, and Youth (grades 6 - 12)

  • Sweetwater Adults: Sundays at 10:45am
  • Sweetwater Kids: Sundays at 10:45am
  • Sweetwater Youth (Project 412): Sunday at 5:00pm

In total, a Sweetwater service is about 70 minutes in length. Services begin with the Sweetwater band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our Pastor will share a message designed to encourage believers to live the life we’re called to live, while also giving skeptics a glimpse into the character of Jesus.

Sunday's at Sweetwater are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
