Who We Are

Making disciples, servants to the nations!

We're a non-denominational church that cares more about your heart than your clothes. We're all broken people and we're not trying to change the world. But we want to change the world of the next person we come in contact with. Our goal is discipleship and authenticity - they go hand in hand. We're not flashy. We just love Jesus and love people.

What to Expect

What are services like?
Our Sunday morning worship service begins with worship that is a mixture of contemporary praise and worship songs with some hymns sprinkled in. Then the children are released for age-appropriate Sunday School classes while the pastor brings the message. Families are welcome to keep their children in "big church" if they prefer. We stream our Sunday morning services live on Facebook, YouTube, and our website. We welcome you to worship with us in person or tune in online and enjoy the worship and teaching.

What is the community like?
We are a loving church family that feels more like a big family. We're multi-generational and multi-cultural ... and we simply love each other. Don't worry about getting dressed up to come to church - you won't be alone, and you'll be welcomed just as you are.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome you to visit us and find out more about us. We are a "judgment-free zone" where no stone-throwing is allowed! We'd love for you to experience our community and see Jesus' teachings in actions. We're imperfect, but we're perfectly loved.

Nathan Martin

Nathan was raised in a pastor's home and knew he was called to the ministry while a teenager. He attended Louisiana College in Pineville, LA before transfering to King's Way Missionary Institute in McAllen, TX. After serving a year as an associate minister at Christian Challenge he moved to southern Mexico to serve as a missionary among indigenous tribes in the states of Oaxaca and Veracruz. He helped establish and/or oversee 13 churches, most of which continue to this day and he continues to provide oversight and leadership development among them. He's ministered in over a dozen nations and enjoys serving on the board of directors of Christians Sharing Christ Film Ministries. In 1990, Nathan, along with his young wife and first child, moved back from Mexico to serve as associate pastor of Christian Challenge, which his father founded in 1976. In 2006 he was installed as Senior Pastor upon his father's retirement, and continues to serve in that role today. Nathan is very active in the community, serving on various boards and volunteering in many organizations. In 2003 he was elected to the Pineville City Council and has been reelected twice (without opposition). He loves serving and making our community a better place to call home. Nathan is very happily married to Lori (nee Chapman) of McAllen, TX and they have 5 children: Joy, Faith, Hope, Viviana and Anderson (the last two of which were adopted from Colombia, South America).
