A place to know and be known
Christ Our King is a church in Columbia, Missouri, that exists to help change people’s lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to close-knit community, pastoral care, Christ-centered worship, Biblical preaching, serving our city, expressing our unity with all Christian believers, and celebrating all good things with great joy.
Worship is the most important and meaningful thing we do together as a church. Our worship is both ancient and modern. We gather each week to pray, sing, read scripture, hear a sermon, and celebrate the Lord's Supper.
We love to party! Throughout the year there are always picnics, parties, and other gatherings for you to experience community. We also have small groups near your neighborhood that meet twice a month for Bible Study, prayer, and fellowship.
Are you looking for answers about God or about life, and you wonder where to turn? Do you want to grow in your relationship with God, but you don't know how? Our pastors are available to serve and care for all who attend our church.
In the Gospels, Jesus makes it clear that He is establishing a radical community of people to be His ambassadors here on earth. At Christ Our King we are striving to be that community.
Our mission as a church is Jesus’ mission for the Church: to make disciples. And the way we go about making disciples is through participating in corporate worship, strengthening the bonds of authentic relationships, and active and engaged pastoral care.
When you visit us you will be noticed. And that’s a good thing! We will welcome you, ask your name, talk to you and get to know you, and you’ll probably be invited over for lunch. This is how we operate. We are a community, and we want you to be a part of our community.
We aren’t the flashiest or most professional church, but we don’t want to be. We aren’t the biggest church, but we’re fine with that. We are intentionally being exactly what God has called us to be: real people, who live and work in Columbia, who love Jesus.
