The Ark exists to impact EVERY life by boldly calling people to follow Jesus, transparently loving others (as Christ does!), obediently serving the community, faithfully teaching the full truth of the Bible and intentionally training witnesses for the Kingdom.
The Ark is a group of people that believe, “…the church of Christ, enfeebled and defective as it may be, is the only object on earth on which He (Christ) bestows His supreme regard.” there is no industry, no business, no amusement park, or any other institution under the sun which can claim to have Jesus’ supreme focus, only the church! Therefore, we are so honored that God has called us to plant a church here in Northwest Visalia; to serve, to love, to do life with the people of this great city!
The Ark is a movement! The church is not a business, it is not a social club, it is not an organization! The church is a movement. It began more than 2000 years ago with 120 people in one room in the city of Jerusalem. Those people chose to dedicate their lives to someone and something bigger than themselves. That someone is Jesus Christ, that something is what Christians call, “The Great Commission.” The Ark is a place where we all can get connected to someone bigger and infinitely more powerful than ourselves (Jesus Christ), serving the most powerful cause in the history of this world!
The Ark is a mix of very young, kind of young, not so young, and the wish-they-were-still-young! We are all different, yet we are similar in that we love God and we love people.
If you feel called to get back to church, or feel called to become a part of a church where sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ is the first priority, let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
