- Restoration Church is a family-friendly church in Murfreesboro, TN where we are committed to following Jesus together in community. We believe that relationship matters most – relationship with God and with each other. God has called us all into a meaningful, personal, life-changing relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. Along with that, God calls us into meaningful, personal, life-changing relationships with each other. We were never meant to follow Jesus alone.
- We believe that love defines our culture because Jesus said so. He said “by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” This sort of love is only lived out in real relationships with each other. This is the foundation of how we live out our faith
Restoration Church exists to make disciples of Jesus by restoring people to God, each other, and purpose.
Jesus has called His Church to be all about making disciples. And we believe that we are called to make disciples the same way He did: in relationship. Jesus didn’t rely on big group gatherings to teach people how to follow Him – He built deep, meaningful relationships with those that followed Him and then after He rose from the dead, they went on to do the same with others. We want to get back to following Jesus the way He modeled and intended. We believe that we were never meant to follow Jesus on our own and that as we follow Jesus as His disciples together we begin to understand our God-given purpose.
Our Core Values
What We Believe
At Restoration Church, we exist to love people, love God, and make disciples by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are called to carry out the great commission and great commandment (Mathew 28:19-20) and our mission statement was built to capture these critical important mandates. We help people find and follow Jesus.
