“Our church is a place where our doors are open to people of all backgrounds—regardless of where they are at in their journeys— and we hope all feel welcomed, comfortable and loved. “Ascent Church” the name comes from a group of Psalms (120-134) each referred to as a “song of ascents.” God’s people sang them as they climbed upward to Jerusalem to worship. It is a picture of community and people from all walks of life seeking God together. It is about discipleship and growth. Just like climbing a mountain, this is a lifelong process. It emphasizes that we have not yet “arrived.” We are all a work in progress. We are on the journey upward. It is all about the ascent and we’re honored to be on this journey with you.”
In the Fall of 2016, Thomas and Helen quit their jobs, left their church, and prepared to move to Virginia Beach to make that dream a reality. Through a partnership with the Association of Related Churches. Ascent Church launched in the Fall of 2017. The mission of Ascent Church is to reach people exactly where they are and to equip them to rise to new life in Christ. Since our launch, we have seen God do incredible things through His people and lives changed in Virginia Beach.
Ascent Church meets Sundays at 2961 Shore Drive in Virginia Beach at 8:30AM, 9:45AM, 11:00AM, and 12:15AM.
