God does not want you to settle for average when you can become great. But becoming great is a choice. God desires that you become great for him by pursuing his purpose and vision for your life. In 2016 we are equipping you to be great by empowering you to reach and connect more people to Jesus so that your life bears much fruit and brings great glory to God.

#REACHMETRO is our theme and vision at Avalon Church for 2016. Our driving purpose is to reach and connect more people in our metro area than ever before. Reaching people is plural and personal. It is many and one. We must reach people as a team but everyone must reach someone. When many of us invite people from our neighborhoods, work, schools, families, and recreational activities we become one powerful force for change in our culture. Simply put, we #REACHMETRO for Jesus.

It is easy to invite somebody on social media as well. Using #REACHMETRO will strengthen our brand and empower our outreach. Use the hashtag for everything you do to reach and connect people. Take pictures at work, at home, and at play and post them to share the story of how you are using your everyday life to #REACHMETRO for Jesus.

Don’t settle for average. Become great for Jesus this year. Let’s #REACHMETRO together!

Our Core Values

Your Next Step is the Most Important Step

Growth and change are a natural part of life and it's the same with your faith. We believe that if you're not taking your next step then you aren't growing and you're missing out on all that God has for you.

Participation is Membership

People often ask how to become a member of Avalon Church. We don't have traditional church membership, no votes or anything like that. So being a "member" of Avalon means you are participating. It's just that easy. Participation in giving, serving, small groups and owning the vision and making it a part of your life. 

Generous People are Happy People

We've all heard it said that it's better to give than receive. We believe that it's better to live opened handed lives that can receive God's blessings.

We're Better Together

No one was meant to live life alone. Being in a community of people that will support you, pray for you and love you is vital to the Christian life. Small groups and serving aren't just things we DO, it's core to who we ARE.

Inviting is Evangelism

A lot of times the term "Evangelism" can be daunting, especially if you don't feel qualified to live up to it. For us it's simple, when we invite our friends and family to be a part of church that IS evangelism.

We Embrace the Mess

There are no perfect people at Avalon Church and we could not be happier. When Christ changes us it's not always an overnight transformation, grace can be messy. We embrace the mess because that's what Jesus does.

Why we Give

You might expect us to say something like "it's better to give than to receive." But if we truly look at it as God would have us, it's better to give what we receive. Through God, we receive many things - our talents, finances, opportunities, possessions - and in return, He asks that we give back only a portion.

It is through this commitment that we enable more hearts to be reached, more lives to be changed, more souls to be stirred, more families to be brought together and more hope to be shared. With Him, there is as much receiving as there is giving. And we are thankful for the resources with which we are entrusted through his faithful provision to each of you.

Avalon HOPE is the evangelism and outreach ministry of Avalon Church. A portion of our weekly giving funds our effort to bring people into a growing relationship with Jesus around the world. Our strategy consists of helping the poor, outreach to the community, planting churches, and evangelism around the world. We believe that Jesus has called us to love people around us and to bring them the Good News of the gospel.


Helping The Poor – Avalon Church helped build and is a major sponsor of Indawo Yethemba in South Africa. Dr. Bob and Joanna Graham founded and lead this children’s village that rescues and raises children whose parents died of HIV related disease. Learn more about Indawo Yethemba by clicking the button below.

Planting Churches – Avalon Church has financially supported and helped start churches in Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Michigan, South Africa, The Netherlands, Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Ecuador. You can learn more about our partner church in Ecuador by clicking the button below.


Outreach To The Community – Avalon Church hosts events each year that focus on reaching those in need in our own community. We call these "Serve Days". During these days, our congregation serves people “In Jesus’ Name.” These events focus on meeting needs in a variety of forms, but most often center on helping struggling families and children.

Evangelism Around The World – Avalon Church places a high value on evangelism locally and around the world. We regularly design church events to help you reach people for Jesus. You may also go on a short-term missions trip with an Avalon Team. These trips are scheduled periodically and are designed to help you minister to the missionary in a way that empowers them to reach their community.
