our story

Simply put, we are real people, with real problems, on real journeys, seeking a real God.  On some issues, there is no negotiation, on others, grace and willingness to differ.  We like music fast and loud, we like it slow and meditative.  We dress up and we dress comfortably.  We are young and we are experienced.  We are simple and we are passionate.  We are the Church and we believe, God's hope for a lost and hurting world!

could you be a creeker?

Well, let's find out...

  • ARE YOU REAL? You know, just yourself. Honest. Authentic. With perhaps a few flaws you could do without, but some really good things you'd like to improve on.
  • DO YOU LOVE FAMILY? Not necessarily your own (although we would hope so). Do you like just being together with others, sharing your stories, and appreciating the journey's of others.
  • DO YOU WANT MORE LIFE? More energy. More passion. More to live for than just yourself.

If any or all of the above sound good to you, you just might be a Creeker. People who come to the table with things to give, a few things they'd like to change, and a God they'd like to know and serve better. At Mill Creek, we don't "do" church. We are the church. As real as it gets. All day, every day. If that sounds good to you, take a look around our website or, better yet, come for a visit.

May you find us real. Consider us family. And ready to do life.

Our passion

Building real life disciples connected to God, People, Purpose and Compassion.

what we believe

God: We believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and their ministry in today’s world.

Scripture: We believe that the Bible, consisting of sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God given by divine inspiration and is inerrant in the original manuscripts. The Bible remains the unchanging authority in matters of Christian faith and practice.

Humanity: We believe that because of sin, humanity is separated from God and in need of salvation which comes only through Jesus Christ.

Salvation: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in God. The Scriptures teach that believers may have the blessed assurance of being saved. One can know beyond doubt that his sins are forgiven and he is a child of God. Assurance of salvation does not negate personal responsibility. We believe that it is possible for a person to apostatize and forfeit his salvation. A growing disciple never asks how much sin God tolerates but instead how close he can live to the Lord.

Church: We believe the church is God's light and messenger of hope in this world. All followers of Jesus should be connected to a local body for personal and corporate life and growth.

Growth: We believe that growth is the natural process in the life of a disciple. Just as our children grow physically, emotionally and mentally, so should a follower of Jesus. This process of growth could also be called discipleship. It is the call of Jesus to follow him and by following him, to grow as his disciple.

Baptism: We believe that followers of Jesus have been commanded to follow the example of Jesus in water baptism, which is the public declaration of the personal decision to follow him. We practice only baptism by immersion. If you would like more information about baptism at Mill Creek, click here.
