Our  Mission 

To be a conduit of change as we discover the hope found in Jesus – one person, one community, and one city at a time.

Life is simply about Jesus. We desire to be a church that lives out the LIFE God has called us to. To help express this, LIFE stands for: 

L - Live for Jesus

Living for Jesus is expressed throughout the culture established and displayed at our weekend services. It is our desire to live for Jesus in every area of ministry, such as our children’s ministry known as “Kid’s Life”, to our youth group for Jr. High and High School students called “Shield”, and anywhere and everywhere a servant is found.

We desire to have an attitude of humility and love for every guest and church attender at The Refuge Church (Phil 2:5).

I - Invite to Jesus

We believe Jesus is the best gift to mankind. We exist to express His love to our families, neighbors, and community. Our culture at The Refuge Church thrives on the invitation to God’s grace building on that foundation He has laid for us (Luke 14).

F- Follow Jesus

What does it mean to follow Jesus? Loving others the way He loves us. How do we pursue that?

We believe the best way is to have community with others through small groups and serving in the local church. (John 13:34-35)

E- Experience Jesus

When we draw near to Jesus by reading the bible (His words), praying, fasting and living a life of generosity through tithing and giving, we will experience a nearness with Him, one that He always envisioned for us (John 15).

Discover Hope

This is your rational stop to hear and read God's Word from the moment you are greeted to the hospitality, sanctuary comfort, inspiring worship and energetic Spirit led teachings by Pastor John and Pastor Joshua. Come and discover the Hope that is found in Jesus.

Family Friendly

This is a great and friendly church. Pastor Joshua teaches through the Bible in a fresh and interesting way that keeps your attention. There is a high value placed on the Scriptures. The worship is awesome, too. Our kids loved the children's ministry.


The people are warm and welcoming. Pastor Joshua is amazing and has a great sense humor.  I feel very comfortable here.


We started our spring break by celebrating Easter at the Refuge Church West. We are visiting from Bakersfield. We felt very welcomed. From the young people waving to us in the parking lot to all the greeters outside and in. The Perlman family and the church family are a genuine people of God.

New Home

Loved this church so much I will make it my home church. The Pastor is down to earth. Extremely great at giving the Word- biblical based. This is my new home.

Great Worship

Everyone is very welcoming, great worship, pastor Joshua is down to earth, funny, preaches from the heart. My husband and I have never found a church that makes you feel like home the minute you got out of your car before even entering the building. If your looking for a church to call "home" this is the place.... check it out for yourselves ❤️❤️
