Church of the Resurrection

Church of the Resurrection began in 1990 as a church for thoughtful people who were not actively involved in church. It was a place where they could become followers of Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, find meaningful relationships, and be sent out each week, inspired to serve God by serving others. The church began with four people, and today more than 11,000 people attend Resurrection each week. The church has four locations in the Kansas City area, each one sharing the same unified vision and heartbeat, but offering unique ministries in its own neighborhood.

Our Purpose

To build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.

Our Vision

To be used by God to change lives, strengthen churches, and transform the world.

Our Journey

To know, love and serve God.
