What We Believe
Share the Light and Love of Jesus
Love God and love others - and in a year (Lord willing), we will try to do it better.
We will be devoted to scripture, fellowship, and prayer.
Our faith is founded on biblical principles, based on what we have learned and what the Bible continues to teach us. Here is a brief list of our beliefs; please let us know if you have any questions or would like more information.
A Little History
Illuminate Church started as a group of people with a love for Jesus gathering in a living room to worship and learn together. The "church" family grew past that point, and we were looking for a new home, when God opened a door for us to meet at Luminous Brewhouse, where they graciously shared their space with us for almost two years. During that time, we were invited to be a Network Site with Harvest Church out of Billings, where we shared Pastor Vern's messages along with our live worship. We then officially became a church under the Western Conference, where we continue to receive council, prayer, and advice. And while we are our own financial entity, they have generously blessed us with many startup costs during our church planting adventures.
During the 2020 Covid pandemic and quarantine period, Pastor Greg felt called to speak and stepped outside his comfort zone to provide live messages every week. While we were grateful for everyone at Harvest and the messages they provided, it is continually exciting to see how God uses us in our humbleness and obedience, and this has been a huge step in a good direction.

Finally, we worship with our Tithes and Offerings, recognizing that everything belongs to God and that He deserves our first fruits in all areas of our life. A minimum of 10% of everything collected goes directly to helping our community.
