Welcome to Restoration!

How We Began

Restoration Church was started in the fall of 2017 with a handful of people meeting in small office space in New Bern, with the hopes, dreams and prayers of creating a church based on Acts 2.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. – Acts 2:42

Our official grand opening to the public will be early 2018 at the old Mattress RX building. We currently gather together each week to worship and learn about God’s grace, love and then scatter into small groups and classes.

What We Dream About

We dream of a church that celebrates RESTORED lives, that cultivates an atmosphere of freedom to grow and serve, and that empowers people with the confidence to do so.

We dream of a church that matters and offers HOPE to its community, that makes a visible, noticeable, and tangible difference on behalf of Christ in the real problems that exist.

We dream of being a home for spiritually homeless people. We envision a place where people can begin and build a deep relationship with Jesus Christ and with fellow believers, where people do life together in genuine COMMUNITY, and where people grow spiritually in an atmosphere where the grace of God is highly celebrated.

We dream of a church where real problems are solved and real needs are met as people are drawn closer to God, where people recover from hurts, habits, and hang-ups that prevent them from enjoying meaningful relationships with God and each other.

We dream of a church where God’s Word is honored as our highest authority on earth and as the source of real and abundant life.

We dream of a church where people serve one another according to the way that God has shaped them, where spiritual gifts, passion, talents, and experiences are a part of how we meet the needs of others inside and outside of our church family.

We welcome you and hope to see you join us on our journey!
