Current Series

The Family Tree: The Denominations of Christianity

We live in a divided world and in a time in which Christians are divided every bit as much. We could benefit by learning more about each other, as understanding the various branches of Christianity would help to bring our world closer together.

Perhaps most importantly, being exposed to different expressions of our faith could revolutionize your spiritual life.

For example, those who struggle with the concept of an eternal, fiery hell have found a completely new view of God and of the afterlife by learning about Orthodox Christianity. There is something revolutionary to learn about each major branch of Christianity, so we will not critique various denominations, but we will instead seek to learn and gain from them.

It may be that the most impactful experience in your spiritual journey could be discovering how our spiritual ancestors wrestled with, and answered, the major questions they faced.

In this series, we will explore the major branches of Christianity over the centuries in order to learn about them and also to grow in our own spiritual lives.

May 1 | Orthodox

Ryan Gear Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to The Well.

If you're looking for a church where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life...

You are welcome here, and so are your questions and doubts.

You don't have to check your brain at the door, because if God created you with a brain, then it's okay to use it in church. The Bible and science are not enemies, and The Well is an open and affirming church, because we believe in interpreting the Bible wisely.

And, ultimately, following Jesus is about how you live and love. The Well is a place to express both your faith and your doubts, so you can grow to become your best self, and partner with God make a difference with your life.

An example of what we mean by that was captured in recent articles about The Well in the East Valley Tribune here and the SanTan Sun News here.

If that sounds like the kind of community you're interested in, we look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Ryan Gear
Lead Pastor

The Well meets Sundays at 10am, and services last about 60 minutes. Well KIDS (infant- 5th grade) is offered during the service.

Meet the leaders of The Well, get more information, or just introduce yourself.

The Well meets In-Person and Online at Hancock Elementary School, 2425 S. Pleasant Dr. Chandler, AZ 85286 and Online on The Well Facebook page.

IT ALL STARTS HERE

The Well is a place of hope, meaning, and purpose where we can be inspired, grow as followers of Jesus Christ, and be a part of something bigger.

More and more people feel like they no longer fit in the type of Christianity they see today. It can be:

Too unlike Jesus
Too out of touch, and
Too closed to the questions ordinary people have about faith.

That's why we started The Well.

We believe that following Jesus should be refreshing, positive, and pull us together instead of pushing us apart.

The mission of The Well is to create a community where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life. 

The Well is a place where:

You are free to express both your faith and your doubts.

You can spiritually grow to become your best self.

And you can partner with God to make a difference with your life.

You'll experience practical teaching from the Bible that will give you hope and wisdom for your everyday life, inspiring worship music, an excellent children's ministry, and the love of a church family who welcomes you with no hidden agenda.

No matter who you are, you are welcome at The Well. We cheer each other on because none of us is perfect, and everyone belongs.

Something different is needed now more than ever. If this sounds like the kind of community you're looking for...

Welcome home.
