Peace Church guides people to fully live as followers of Jesus
That everyone in the Chippewa Valley would experience the transforming power of the Gospel
These measures indicate how well Peace is fulfilling its mission.
I trust in Jesus as my Savior, receive from Him every spiritual benefit, and live in a vital, empowering relationship with Him.
I pursue Jesus by finding ways to be with Him, to learn from Him, and to grow in my love for Him. This pursuit involves the active practice of spiritual disciplines both individually and in Christian community.
Live Like Jesus
As I follow Jesus, I learn to live like him. His spirit shapes my heart, and my attitudes and actions change to reflect more of his character. I learn to live according to the will and word of God, so that I produce good works in his name. When people know me they recognize that Jesus is at work in my life.
Love Like Jesus
As a Christian community, we are called to share the love of Christ in a broken and hurting world. Our Lord set the example for us by unconditionally loving a sinful and rebellious people so much that He was willing to lay down His own life.
Risk Like Jesus
I go beyond my comfort zone to live for Jesus.
God desires to offer grace, his unconditional and unmerited love given through Jesus Christ, to every person. (Ephesians 2:1-10)
It is God's plan that every Christian be on a journey of spiritual development as the Holy Spirit liberates us from sinful patterns and empowers us to grow into our potential as Christ's followers. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
Empowering Every Christian for Ministry
Every Christian has been gifted by the Holy Spirit to participate in God's work in the world. A major role of the church leadership is to provide encouragement and training for our members to use their God-given abilities for service within the church and community. (1 Corinthians 12)
Christian friendships and mentoring relationships provide crucial channels for mutual care and service. Relationships also support spiritual development as we serve as Christ-like examples for one another and help one another apply God's Word to daily living. (Colossians 3:12-17)
Application of God's Word to Life
The preaching and teaching ministry of Peace seeks to apply God's Word in practical ways to every aspect of our lives. (James 1:22)
Experiencing God's Presence
We seek to cultivate deeply spiritual relationships with Jesus Christ through personal and corporate worship, study, prayer, and retreat. (Psalm 63:1-5; Acts 2:42-47)
Vitality and Diversity in Worship
Peace is committed to using the best of traditional and contemporary resources to provide worship experiences where people of different generations and musical preferences can encounter God in a meaningful way. (1 Corinthians 9:19-22)
Our mission is to share the Gospel message with every generation in the Chippewa Valley, each loved by God and in need of a relationship with Jesus Christ.

3 Stories: For anyone seeking to strengthen their faith, connect with the Peace community, and discover how God is uniquely at work in their lives. We explore 3 key stories – My Story, how God has been at work in your life … God’s Story how God has been at work throughout human history as revealed in the Bible … and Our Story, the story of how God is at work within the faith community called Peace Church.
Post-It Note Timeline: This is one of the components of the 3 Stories event. It helps to gain perspective on how God has already been at work in your life and where He may be leading you in the future.
Coaching: Christian coaching is an ongoing intentional conversation designed to give you greater clarity and insight personally, professionally, or spiritually.
Engage with the core components of the Peace Mosaic: join a life group, participate in a mission trip, attend a class on the Bible or worship, check out a retreat, find a place to serve at Peace, read one of the gospels, pick up a daily devotional, enlist the help of a coach or mentor, make a financial gift, commit to a Bible reading plan, or explore other options. There are many opportunities to grow, serve, and get involved at Peace.
