Connect2Christ Church is a Non-Denominational Church Located in Seminole Florida. We are built on the foundation of Connecting Worship with Missions in our Local Area.
We are so happy you have chosen to connect with us through our Seminole Church website. Life is a journey and God has created us for relationships--connections. Therefore, our goal, on the path of life, is to be in agreement with God's desires by developing and supporting healthy relational connections. In the power of the cross, we find ourselves reaching vertically to God and horizontally to our fellow traveling companions; 2 powerful ways to connect to Christ we call worship and mission.
Since our sovereign God is the Source of life, we need to make that relational connection the most important. By doing so, we honor the eternal covenant (promised agreement) God made to love and provide for His people. This connection positions us to open ourselves up to make Christ the Lord of our lives; a posture of worship--connect to Christ. Making this vertical connection is the beginning, but we must continue making more connections.
Jesus commanded, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself." (Matt. 22:37-39 NLT) Our responsibility as God worshipers is to connect and reach out to others who need God, through mission--connect through Christ.
In this world, we find escalating challenges; discouraged and desperate people in need of an experience with the Love of God found in Christ. An experience so powerful, he or she will want to make the rest of life's journey connected to the Savior. God's Word is a Light and God's Spirit leads the Way for eternal connections.
Christianity Is About Getting into Agreement with God.
We teach God's story that is spiritually revealed in the Bible. We believe we are ordinary people who know, love, and serve an extraordinary God.
The Beginning: The Story of God and Humanity-- A Divine mission.
Our triune God--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--is the Creator of all things and has ultimate authority. We were made in the image of God to live in harmony with the Creator and His plans for the creation; that we would all live for God's glory. (Genesis 1:1, 26-28, 31)
The Blunder: Mankind Sins Against God's Plan and Mission
Mankind sinned against God's authority--God's way of living--and was separated from living in the presence of God and cooperating in His mission. We needed a Savior--our Bridge to Life and Fellowship with God; a new connection with direction and purpose. (Romans 3:23)
The Bridge: Jesus Christ brings Connection and Correction for the Mission.
Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God; fully divine and fully human. Christ paid the price for humanity’s sin against God by dying on the cross. Jesus died, was buried and rose again. He is now seated with God in heaven until he is sent to gather the believers. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to guide every believer. We can now fulfill our purpose, through partnership with the Spirit, for God's mission. (John 3:16)
The Business: The Holy Spirit Gives Energy and Guidance to finish God's Mission.
The Holy Spirit is our Power for Living. When a person believes in the work of Jesus Christ as Savior, the Holy spirit comes to live with him or her. It is the work of the Spirit to bring and manifest truth. We witness to the truth of God’s love for us and for others. The Spirit teaches and helps us to mirror the holiness of Christ--love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, thoughtfulness, and self control--as we live out God’s mission to lovingly connect with humanity worldwide. (Acts 1:8)
Welcome to Connect2Christ Church
As the pastor of Connect2Christ Church in Seminole, Florida, let me be the first to welcome you! I am so happy you have taken the time to visit our website.
At Connect2Christ in Seminole, we believe life was created to be lived in connection to God through Jesus Christ--our Bridge. Therefore, this church is a warm and welcoming place where you can explore and grow in your relationship with God. Ask the hard questions. If we are going to grow spiritually, we must gather wisdom by nurturing our connection with God, as well as establish new connections with members of God's family to gain insight from their spiritual experiences.
The call of God on my life is to serve as a spiritual guide; to help you connect and fulfill God's unique plan for you!
It seems we are always hearing about ways to connect to God. The Bible reminds us, however, that we can only gain connection to God through Jesus Christ; God's Son. As we connect to Christ, we can then begin an authentic journey of discovery and learning; begin to understand the heart and ways of our Creator. Life can be challenging and difficult at times; we have questions. God has the answers. I want to know the truth from my Maker. Don't you?
We are all learning together--in connection. If you do not know Christ, have only known Christ a short while, or have been a follower of Christ for years and years you will still find the Holy Spirit calling you to embrace change and growth. Meeting together with God's family is a wonderful gift for this learning and growth experience. So come and connect!

The Church Is To Foster The Worship Of God and His Mission to the World Connect2Christ Church focuses on two things that permeate everything Scripture teaches about the followers of Christ: Worship and Mission. Worship is our way to exalt and honor the authority of God; we call it the fear of the Lord but it is really about respecting our Creator and how He created us to live.
In worship, revelation of God's love heals, restores, and influences our souls (mind, will, emotions). Worship changes our perspective and motives; we are invited to connect and become a community of Christ followers.
We know we are loved and adored by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; we chose to love one another based on the common ground experience that God is love. A sense of peace and well-being comes to the worshiper. Worship is essential, because authentic Mission flows out of it.
Mission is when we choose to become Christ's hands and feet to a world who may not recognize God as love. We want others to know this extraordinary and Living God who fills and permeates our being. The world is filled with hurting, broken, and needy people who could benefit from an encounter with unfailing love and endless mercy. Mission is not about judgment, it is about loving others in God's direction.
