Upper Room Community Church is a faith community devoted to the ways of Christ. We are inspired by the simple idea that we and our world can, and must be, transformed by Christ. 

We aim to inspire change. We create environments that inspire conversations, stories and actions about lives and culture being changed. We are simple in our aim, uneasy with the status quo, and intentional in our actions.

We think Christ-inspired transformation joins spirituality and activism in a sacred union.

While transformation inspires us, it also humbles us—those who believe in change must be changed. So, we pray. We worship. We immerse ourselves in the best practices of ancient and contemporary Christian spirituality. Slowly we are being transformed.

We are more accepting, less judging. We are letting go of grudges. We are more unified. We think less often of our own comfort. We point more quickly to the greatness of Jesus and less often to ourselves.

We see that the world is not yet as it can be. We see darkness and evils that horrify us. We see children suffering from food insecurity. We see people dying from unclean water. We see families broken by poverty. We see women and children enslaved in sex trafficking. We know that there are people groups who have yet to hear of Jesus for the first time.

We can no longer look the other way and keep wondering why someone doesn’t do something. We are moving into action. We are dreaming dreams of a transformed world and flooding our world with the good news that change is real and present.
