"Common interests done consistently with others gives birth to authentic friendship."
We believe we do things a bit differently here. That's not to say we're totally out in left field: On the surface we look like a typical church that preaches the Bible, but at Substance, we're also not afraid to do things differently when it means we could peak someone's interest--someone who might have grown up disliking church as much as I, Pastor Peter, did. Our beliefs may be similar to many churches you’ve found, but it is our hope that our “doing” is pushing the limits of your expectations, and driving our members deeper into community. Check out the video below to get an idea of what you can expect at one of our weekend services.
Substance currently meets in three locations to make your visit more accessible.
