What to expect at The Open Door

Are you thinking it’s time to come and check out The Open Door for yourself? Well we think that is a great idea, and we want to help you be as prepared and comfortable as we possibly can for your first visit.

The first thing you need to know about us is that we are real. What we mean by real is that we are authentic, honest and direct. We don’t really care what you wear when you come to The Open Door; we’re just excited that you’re here because we believe God is excited when His people gather to learn about Him.

Most Sunday mornings are led by our pastor and teacher, Steve Bakke, along with our talented worship team. They lead us in the three core elements to our Sunday gatherings; teaching of God’s Word, singing in worship and prayer. It’s pretty simple. We don’t get too complicated but we take God seriously. You can expect to hear great music, be taught straight from the pages of God’s Word and be given the chance to meet God in a way you may have never met Him before. If you have your own Bible, we encourage you to bring it. We will be teaching right from it. If you don’t have one, that’s okay. We have some you can borrow for the morning and if you decide you like it, you can take it home with you!

Our Sunday morning goal is pretty simple. We want to spend time in God’s presence and in the company of the Holy Spirit. We have learned that the more we come to church expecting to be awed by God and anticipating what He is going to do among us, the more we enjoy being in church.

Come and see!
