We are a local church for the people of Richmond Virginia. At United Church, we believe church is about us discovering and learning how to have a loving, authentic relationship with God and with one another. We believe Jesus Christ is God and proved His amazing love for this city by dying on the cross to take the punishment for our mistakes and pride—giving us His righteousness as a free gift. He rose again to give us hope that death is not the end but just the beginning of all that God has in store for us. We believe by the Holy Spirit we now have the fullness of His love living in us and flowing through us for the sake of others. We believe the church exists for the blessing and the welfare of the people and city it's planted in. We believe the church is both big and small, having a vision to reach many people with the love of Christ, preaching the gospel in larger worship gatherings and staying small through groups and personal relationships.
Adam grew up in a "church start up" in Staten Island NYC. As a native New Yorker, diversity and outreach are in his blood. Adam and Leslie met at the age of 13, riding the city bus to school, and from that point on they have been inseparable. Both Adam and Leslie attended Elim Bible Institute.
In the late 90's Adam returned home to assist his family with the church in Staten Island. As he began to preach, teach and lead worship on a regular basis, Adam immediately knew - this is what he was created to do.
Adam and Leslie married in 2001 and knew God was calling them to full-time ministry. In 2004, after the birth of their first child, they relocated to Richmond, Va. Twelve years and two more children later, they have been called to plant a church in the community where they have lived their entire time in Richmond-building relationship, loving their neighbors, and growing a passion to see a diverse community help change a city.
We are a local church that wants to see a diverse community United ...by being relationally humble, radically generous and redemptively loving. We believe that through the gospel of Jesus Christ we will know Him, find freedom, discover our purpose, and make a difference in our city.
We are devoted to seeing our community United by:
- partnering with the local schools
along the Forest Hill corridor
-reaching out to our neighbors in need
-and providing a safe, life-giving church environment
-Fun and Friendly welcome
-High energy, worship music
Pray for us. We believe in the power of prayer and the more people we have praying alongside of us the better.
