Additional Info About Our Church

We are a multi-cultural, multi-generational spirit filled church with a focus on the family. You will find a warm welcome, inspirational worship, bible based relative teaching and lots of activities for youth and children. We are growing life together at the Family Church.

The campus of Christian Retreat was founded as a place for people to receive from some of the nation's top-name Christian leaders. Our year begins with "Homecoming" and a reunion of our Institute of Ministry Alumni leading into the Winter Conference Season. Throughout the year we hold other various conferences including the annual Feast of Tabernacles celebration, Women's Conferences, Youth Explosion (YEX) and Kids-A-Flame camps. Christian Retreat has also become a favorite meeting place for other church groups to conduct their own retreats, encounters and conferences. Miracle Manor and Maranatha housing facilities located on the waterfront, have 110 rooms. Agape Gardens Dining Room is our full-service cafeteria. Just steps away from the sanctuary, a delicious, full-course meal, complete with salad bar, awaits you after most services.


To establish the Gospel and Community of God. To create an environment for people to experience the love and presence of God. To transform and embrace our neighborhoods and communities.
