We are All About Jesus

The Bible is a story and Jesus is the central person of this story. The name of our church reflects this understanding. Via simply means "way" and comes from one of Jesus’ statements in the Gospel of John where he declares himself to be the way that God has come to us.

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. 
- Jesus (John 14:6)

The good news is that Jesus is making all things new and we are stewards of this good news. We live to make this good news known so that others might see the truth of who Jesus is and what he has done on their behalf.

Our name, Via Church come from John 14:6 where Jesus says I am the way, and the truth, and the life Via Church is located in Mesa Arizona  
 

 

The Gathered Church

We love Jesus. We come together each Sunday to celebrate the restoration work that Jesus has done in our hearts and is doing in our world.

Every week, we gather together from all across our city. We each live in different neighborhoods and work in a variety of vocations, but each week, we gather together to because Jesus has transformed our lives.


Coming to a church for the first time can be a little intimidating. We would like to let you know a little bit about what to expect before you attend.

 

The Scattered Church

We believe that the church was not meant to be taken out of the world, but to be sent into the world. We seek to live very intentionally as the people of God in our various vocations and locations.

Neighborhood
Our neighborhood is the place that God has caused us to inhabit and we desire to live as a people sent to our immediate neighbors who live right around us.

Vocation
Work is designed by God and is a good thing. When we scatter, our vocations consume a majority of our time. We believe that each vocation has significance and that God actually works through each vocation for his glory.

Current Series: Light my Path

A Heart Journey Through Psalm 119

This compelling Psalm shows a broken man who finds tremendous joy and comfort in the light God has given to him. Throughout the Psalm, our attention is directed to the reality that this world is broken, disordered, chaotic and dark, yet, in the midst of this, light has come. We read a piece of poetry is immensely personal, yet is being sung from the rooftops by someone whose confidence and trust is in the God who has provided a lamp for his feet and a light for his path.

We will be preaching through this Psalm, verse-by-verse, section-by-section, for the next sixteen weeks. See what God will do in your heart and mind as you engage his Word and this Psalm in the particular with us!


 

Bible-Based preaching

Our regular diet of preaching is called "expository" and basically means that we seek to preach through books of the Bible and allow the text to dictate our direction and emphasis. The great thing about this approach is that we cover topics that we likely wouldn't normally cover. Occasionally however, we will do a sermon series that will address a specific topic or focus if as pastors we sense that this is needed.

 

Story-based Bible

As we approach the Bible, we are careful to not view this as simply a manual or instruction book, but rather as a story. We are all profoundly shaped by stories (also called narratives or even world views). These stories come to us through our upbringing, our culture, our family habits, our ethnic heritage, our friendships, our workplace, and a host of other places. If we view the Bible as separate small pieces of wisdom, devotional truths, moral lessons, inspirational phrases, etc., than we may simply be form-fitting the bible into our story instead of having our story shaped by The Story of God.

Mission & Values


Our Mission is: Reflecting the hope of Christ so others can do the same.

The reason for our existence has been given to us in crystal clarity. Jesus told His followers, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). He commissioned his church by giving them these instructions. We are a part of His Church and this mission is our mission.

Every local church finds their unique ways that they express and accomplish this Great Commission of Jesus. At Via Church, because of Christ’s work in us, we are brimming with indiscriminate compassion for people - especially our city. This brings hope to people in desperate circumstances. Our hope is Jesus. We simply reflect His hope in all of life.

Our Values

The following values are not merely aspirational. These are things that Via Church values more than normal. These have formed over many years of decisions and practice. You will find these values expressed in very tangible and noticeable ways when attending our services and being a part of our faith community. We aren’t perfect at these things, but we work to nurture these valuable qualities. They often guide us as we make decisions on new ministries and direction.

Bible-based

We are unapologetically Bible-based because there is no other source that reveals to us the truth of God in a greater way.

Authentic

We intentionally pursue authenticity in our relationships because it is impossible to grow in your faith without it.

Sent

We are purposefully sent into our world to be a blessing to those that are near and far from God because God sent Jesus to us and the Holy Spirit sends us to others.

Intergenerational

We are passionately committed to serve generations other than our own because my preference is secondary when it comes to the needs of others.

Compassionate

We indiscriminately care for the needs of others above our own because Christ became a servant for us.
