Bellevue Christian Center isn't just four walls, a roof and a parking lot. It's our home—it's where God is writing each of our stories. We encounter God here. Lives have been changed here—marriages restored, dreams awakened, leaders trained up and leaders sent out. It's a place of belonging and becoming.
Long before most of us found our way to Bellevue Christian Center there were many in this church family who sacrificed greatly and gave generously so that we could enjoy our present house of worship. Now it's our turn to continue the work they began—it's time to renovate and keep building!
Our church was started in 1972 as three military families combined their faith and vision to see a Spirit-filled church in what was then called "downtown" Bellevue. Two years later, Sam Mayo became Senior Pastor and led the church through a season of numerical growth and purchase of our current 17-acre site.
Funds were raised and a house of worship (our West facility) was built largely on volunteer labor. In January of 1989, Gary Hoyt became the new Lead Pastor and the church continued to grow, completing our present sanctuary and a few classrooms. One project followed the next until approximately two-thirds of the basement was completed. On Dec. 21, 2008, the church family celebrated God's goodness with a mortgage-burning.
We've been dreaming and we're making plans to remodel the sanctuary and foyer—and to complete some unfinished areas in the basement as a Kid's Zone.
If you consider Bellevue Christian Center your church family, please be in prayer about how God would want you to support this renovation and in turn the next generation of Greater Things that God has in store for our church and our community.
