Becoming Fully Alive in Christ and to His Mission.


Awaken to the wonder, hope and healing found in Jesus. We continue the witness of generations concerning the resurrection of Jesus Christ -- that he is indeed alive, active in our world and is coming again to fully establish his kingdom among all people. Because of this reality, The Awakening Church desires for every person is to become Fully Alive in Christ and to His Mission. Join us on the journey of awakening!

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (Jesus - John 10:10)
