OpenDoor is a community of believers who have a passionate desire to provide a safe and welcoming place where you can personally Experience Real Life in Jesus Christ. OpenDoor is not just our name, it’s a description of who we strive to be.
We began in 1995 as a food outreach to the poor. As we demonstrated the heart of Jesus in feeding the hungry we saw many surrender their hearts to the Lord. We quickly realized the need to provide a place to disciple the people we were reaching out to- thus the church was born. Today, OpenDoor Foodbank gives away well over a million pounds of food every year to the hurting in our area.
In June 2013, Pastor Gloria Gillaspie retired and entrusted her church to us. In one amazing God moment, OpenDoor inherited a whole new congregation along with a wonderful facility that can seat 1000 people. We are thankful for the legacy of Lighthouse and the groundwork that was laid for the work the Lord wants to do today.
“Experience Real Life”
- EXPERIENCE: Create an atmosphere that is safe, casual and loving with the goal of preparing a place for all who enter to experience Jesus in a personal way.
- REAL: Jesus loves you, the real you. We desire to be real before Him and allow Him to transform us to His image.
- LIFE: As freedom fanatics and hope zealots, we celebrate all things life. There is life in Jesus so there is life in us; we pray we demonstrate that in all we do.
