Brought to Life to Bring Life. As Christians we were given abundant life in Christ, not just for ourselves, but to share with others. We are Rooted in Christ, Growing Together and bringing Fruit for the Valley. Our success is not measured in how many are involved with our church. Rather, by how many in our community are tasting the sweet fruit of new life in Christ so that our community culture reflects His vibrant life, hope, freedom and purpose.
The Orchard was planted as “Church at Carbondale” in May of 1990. It was a church plant by Church at Redstone that Pastor Doug and a few others had founded in 1977. Over the years Church at Redstone grew and constructed a church building. Soon it was full and overflowing. That occasioned the planting of Church at Carbondale.
Check our website for our statement of faith. Briefly, we believe the basic doctrines that have been affirmed by Bible based churches for centuries.
Church at Carbondale was founded as “a fun place to get serious with God, for people who have given up on church, but not on God.” A little after 2000, we added, “where you can build a life transforming relationship with Jesus Christ”. Recently we realized that the name Church at Carbondale, wasn’t big enough for our new vision Brought to Life to Bring Life and our new mission Rooted in Christ, Growing Together, Fruit for the Valley. The Orchard is building on that foundation and describes people, all during the week, all over the valley, and gathered on Sundays, are bringing life. This is a movement, not a place.
