Are you looking for hope? Restoration Church is a group of people simply trying to follow Jesus. We believe Jesus transforms us and gives the deep hope our hearts long for. Our heartbeat is to see the image of God restored in us all.
Restoration started meeting weekly in November of 2010. A handful of individuals and families from various neighborhoods in Denver wanted to impact our city with the love and message of Jesus. Those on our launch team, along with some individuals and organizations nationally, generously provided support and accountability in helping us start strong. From the beginning, we designed our services as a safe place for people to explore faith and grow in their relationship with God, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. At Restoration you can be yourself, build life changing friendships, and make a difference in the world both locally and globally.
Whatever your story, we invite you to join us. Maybe you feel wary of Christianity. Maybe you’re a new believer eager to grow. Maybe you’ve been following Christ for years. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you have a home at Restoration.
We sweat and bleed with God to restore people and places
We shamelessly share our faith
We believe everyone has a next step
We move people from rows to circles
We reproduce disciples, groups, and churches
Restoration is theologically historic, minimalistic and generous. We love the expression, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.” We hold to the historic profession of the early church as articulated in the apostles creed. Below you will find the handful of theological positions that shape our community.
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
2035 AD, 1,000 churches in neighborhoods throughout our city.
God has used the people of Restoration to prevent Christianity from nearly going extinct in Denver. Our kids and grand kids have churches they go to that are relevant for their generation. The attitude towards Christians in our city has shifted from apathy and resentment to appreciation and respect. Thousands of people loved by God have turned from spiritual brokenness, idolatry and addiction, to holiness, discipleship and freedom. A new generation of passionate, committed leaders are poised to bring heaven to Denver in the future. We have helped start over 100 churches.
