We are an imperfect church for imperfect people. At Imagine, we embrace a casual atmosphere. We believe in a "come as you are" mentality. We don't believe that we are a perfect church, but want all of us to experience inspired new beginnings that change us through Christ as we recognize and respond to Him.
Sunday mornings are characterized by great worship music, a participatory and
inviting style that helps people connect to their Creator, and relevant,
challenging, and inspiring Bible teaching. The services are designed to be a
space where you feel welcomed, accepted, and comfortable while being invited
into the powerful presence of God among His people in worship. The teaching
from the Bible is so engaging that you enjoy listening, so practical that you
understand how to apply it, and so challenging that everyone in the room,
wherever they are along their spiritual journey, is moved to take steps toward
God and live more like their Savior. Sundays also provide time to gather
together in community, have fun, and encourage each other.
One of our core commitments is to provide exciting, high-quality ministry and resources to families. We want to create a space where Sunday morning at Imagine Kids is the best hour of every kid’s week, and we want our kids and students to meet Jesus so powerfully that they are excited to invite their friends to come to church with them. We believe in providing a safe, inviting, and fun place for your children to learn and discover more about God. We are also passionate about providing resources and coaching to parents, grandparents, guardians, etc. because we know that families are the best influencers, teachers, and disciple-makers in the world. Additionally, we will provide times throughout the year for families – and for all generations who are a part of our church – to worship together during our Family Worship Services.
WE GIVE FREELY
We teach and talk regularly about living and giving generously out of the gifts that God has given us and we put our time, our talents, and our treasure where our mouth is. We are committed to being a revolutionary force of Christ’s love in the Otsego Area by giving to the needs around us.
Our generosity and our commitment to giving of ourselves for the sake of the God who has given us everything fuel outreach and evangelism. Our call is to go and give not gather and wait. We are passionate about sharing Jesus with our world to help people meet him and follow him fully, and we're also passionate about showing his love to those around us. We look for ways to partner with organizations in the community who are making a difference, regardless of whether of not our values align.
CHURCH PLANTING AND MISSIONS
Imagine Church is, ultimately, not about us. It’s about Jesus. We believe that we are not THE church, just A church, that is a part of THE Church. We want to help people experience inspired new beginnings that change who they are. And our budget reflects that. There is no better way to reach lost people in America today than starting new churches. So that’s exactly what we want to do. We give 5% of our general fund to church planting and we provide resources, coaching, and people to church planting as well. We also give funding and provide people to missions around the world in many places for the sake of the gospel.
