Welcome to Access Church!

We’re so glad you decided to join us today. Take a moment to let us know a little more about you. We’d love to connect with you and help you have the best experience possible at Access!

All Things New

Pastor Jason Burns

  • Baptism is a public declaration of a personal decision.

Joshua 24:15 // But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

Revelation 3:15-16 // I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Revelation 21:4-5 // ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”

2 Corinthians 5:17 // Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

2 Corinthians 5:17 TLB // When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun!

  • HOW DO WE CHANGE? 
Outside in or Inside Out.
  • Do SOMETHING DIFFERENT or become SOMEONE DIFFERENT.
  • Improve the OLD YOU or become a NEW YOU.
  • New leaf vs. new life

Romans 6:4 // We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Need Care?

We want to pastor you and care for your needs. If you have a prayer request or need care, visit access.tv/care using the button below.

We are a giving church.

Giving online at Access Church is simple and secure. Whether you’d like to give instantly or schedule ongoing giving, you can do it all here.

We are better together.

We believe that real life-change happens in a community. We are not made to do life alone. That’s why we gather in Access Groups where we can get comfortable, share, invest, and grow.
