The Acts 11:15 Story

The Dream

In May 2019 the dream of a few became reality with the concept of a new ministry. This new ministry was founded in the Holy Scriptures and is called Acts 11:15.  The desire to create a meaningful worship experience for those who are not comfortable in a traditional church setting was paramount in all aspects of planning. From the non-traditional music and relaxed atmosphere, the 11:15 a.m. start time to even the church location - the brand new Sipe Center Theater in downtown Bridgewater - this ministry is different, and it welcomes everyone.

Welcoming All

In warm Christian fellowship we welcome all:

~Who feel they have no church home

~Who are seeking a more spiritually fulfilled life with Jesus Christ

~Who don't know Jesus Christ

 ~Who have been hurt or ignored by traditional religious institutions

~Who want a fresh start with the one true God who loves each of us unconditionally, just as we are

Change Your Life

In other words, we welcome YOU!  

We welcome you to a new way of worship that just might change your life forever. 

Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will fall upon you, just as He did in May, upon those few who first recognized the need for a new way of worship in Bridgewater and Rockingham County.

 Welcoming all to walk more closely with God.
