WHY START ANOTHER CHURCH?
Watermark Church was born from a passion to see people find Jesus, find a faith family to belong to, and find a mission to give their lives for. A study of the Grand Haven area and surrounding communities revealed that around 60% of people were not regularly connected to a church community. So in January 2003, All Shores Wesleyan (formally known as Spring Lake Wesleyan) announced that they were going to partner with other area Wesleyan Churches to plant a new church to meet this need.
WHAT DOES WATERMARK MEAN?
A Watermark is a mark of identification and authenticity that can be seen on paper when held up to the light.
We desire to have people see Jesus in us. We want to be marked and identified as authentic followers of Jesus.
A Watermark is a pattern used to imprint a mark of identification.
We desire to sharing Jesus around us. We want to imprint the lives of those we encounter with Jesus.
A Watermark is an indicating mark of where water was at its peak.
We desire to join God in redeeming all creation. We want to be used by God to see people redeemed to their intended design.
You don’t have to be a follower of Jesus in order to belong. And you certainly don’t need any special spiritual or religious background or qualifications. While we want everyone everywhere to find and follow Jesus, find a faith family to belong to, and find a mission and purpose to live for, we think the best way to do that is to jump in and see if it’s for you. See if it’s the real deal.
We are so glad you took the time to get to know us and we look forward to getting to know you!
