We believe that just like Jesus, the local church should be irresistible.
People should want to wake up on Sunday morning and go to church. Our desire is to be people’s number one option on Sunday morning, first because of what we do and ultimately because of what we believe.
During our lifetime, our own communities have become a mission field. 88% of people in Clarksville/Ft. Campbell don’t go to church anywhere— that’s over 125,274 people. We wanted to create a place where people who don’t go to church realize that church can be fun and that God isn’t mad at them.
This vision took shape in 2007 when a team of leaders founded oneChurch as a church for people who do not go to church. oneChurch was launched by the local church that Pastor Chris grew up in. Starting oneChurch was in response to a group of people that wanted to see their friends and neighbors connect or reconnect with God.
We had our first church service in a local movie theatre on September 2007. A year later, we moved to Northeast High School because of our growth. The local school system is phasing out churches meeting in schools, so in July 2016, we moved back to the movie theater. In October 2016 GraceLife Church Clarksville became a part of oneChurch.tv. Led by Pastor Carlo, he also had a vision for people who felt disconnected from God and the local church.
The average age of our church is 24 years old. 85% of our church is military or former military, with every year 40% our church turning over due to PCS. The best adjective to describe the people at oneChurch is messy. Our commitment to you is that our focus will always be God’s focus "To seek and to save those who are far from God.” Not programs or buildings or denominations or other silly stuff it’s all about connecting people to God!
