Who We Are

All of our work at The Ridge is focused on our mission: Meeting you where you are, and helping you get to where God wants you to be.
Because all people matter to God, you are important to us. That's why we teach the Bible in a way you can understand, believing God will use it to change your life. As Christ-followers, we are focused on loving and serving each other and taking that experience into our community.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and teaches us everything we need to know about our relationship with him. We believe there is only one living and true God, who reveals himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The most important thing about any of us is our relationship with God. We believe we were created by God, but chose to rebel against his loving authority. God's punishment for our rebellion is eternal death—a punishment we all deserve.
But because he loves us, God sent Jesus into the world. Jesus never rebelled against God, but obeyed him perfectly by dying in our place for our rebellion.
But Jesus did not stay dead. After three days God raised him to life, and he returned to heaven. One day Jesus will return to judge the world.
If you trust in Jesus for the payment for your sins you will be forgiven. That trust restores us to the relationship with God that we were created to have, and means the difference between heaven and hell.

Darrel Schick

The seeds of the beginning of The Ridge were planted in Darrel Schick's heart in the mid 90s. Darrel and his wife, Ruth, were one of three couples that helped start the Ridge in the spring of 1998. A Christian from a very early age, Darrel spent much of his adult life leading a successful career in radio and television broadcasting. For the past decade plus, he has devoted himself to building The Ridge into a unique, straight-forward church focused on helping seekers and followers of Christ find truth and community. His gifts of communication are put to good use in making God’s words accessible to spiritual seekers and to those seeking God's will for their lives.
