To Global, thanks for everything. Love, Tacoma.

As a pastor I have the privilege and joy of seeing and celebrating amazing evidences of God’s grace in the lives of his people. This past year was no exception as there have been several milestones of God’s faithfulness that I want to share with you.

Every family needs a home

For four years, Mars Hill Federal Way had been a nomadic set-up-tear-down church looking for a permanent home. By God’s grace we were able to purchase a 106-year-old vintage church building in Tacoma, Washington. After nine months of renovations and 8,000 volunteer man-hours of sweat equity, we replanted Mars Hill Federal Way, became Mars Hill Tacoma, and moved into our new home in December 2013. We would not have been able to buy our new home and relocate without the help of Mars Hill Global—thank you all very, very much for helping us! You made our dream of having a permanent home come true.

Seeing the family grow

Since opening up Mars Hill Tacoma, we have seen hundreds of new people join the church and many people have become Christians. In the past six months, we have celebrated Jesus with 54 baptisms. Each baptism is a story of someone who has been saved by Jesus, has been adopted into God’s family, and is growing in grace as a Christian.

One young man who was baptized shared his testimony of how he was sexually abused as a child. During his teen years, he sold drugs and became violent toward others. This resulted in him going to prison for assault. He was angry and alone, but Jesus saved him, giving him a new life and a new legacy. As he shared this story with the church body, another young man named Michael heard his testimony and realized that he was on a path of self-destruction. Michael called out to Jesus for help and became a Christian. Within minutes Michael was baptized. After getting dunked, Michael hugged his wife. I will never forget seeing Michael and his wife hugging in celebration of Jesus’ redemption. Their lives will never be the same.

Again, Mars Hill Global, thank you! Your contributions to the Tacoma church have made a direct impact in the lives of many people. I pray that, in the years ahead, we will see many more people meet Jesus.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids. To learn more about each of these, click the links below.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.

Cheerful givers wanted

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
