WHO WE ARE

We are a church that demonstrates Jesus’ unconditional love to others so that they can belong to a family and experience God’s love and grace no matter who they are, what they are going through, or what they believe.

CHURCH HISTORY

Formerly known as Northside Christian Church, Encompass Church started in 1952. Our church was established after a handful of Bible college students from Richmond Temple carried out a tent outreach event in Reservoir. Today, more than 6 decades later, we are a strong, community focused church who love Jesus and aspire to connect people of all walks of life to Him.

SUNDAY GATHERINGS

We believe Jesus perfectly reveals the true heart of God.  This is why our Sunday services are focused on connecting with Him. Our vibrant and contemporary services create an environment where all people can encounter God.
