Our vision and hope is that Christ Church will become a maturing and growing community of Christians who together live all of life in light of the gospel.
It is our utmost desire to see every member of Christ Church faithfully fulfill God’s call on their life by living all of life in light of the gospel. As a leadership team, we hope to lovingly guide our church family into this way of life for God’s glory, our joy, and the good of our families to the third and fourth generation!
All of Life in Light of the Gospel
The good news of the gospel proclaims what God has already done for us in Christ for our salvation and knowing him transforms the way we view everything else. To live "all of life in light of the gospel" is our way of saying that since we have come to know the one true God through his Son we long to see Him glorified in every area of our life.
Life Before God // Treasuring Christ Over All Things
The light of the gospel reveals the glory of Christ and radically changes our relationship with God. Jesus becomes the greatest Treasure of our hearts because he is the one that fuels every aspect of the Christian life. The unity of the Church is rooted in him.
Life with One Another // Maturing in Christ-like Love
Believing the gospel radically changes our relationships with one another. Understanding the depths of God’s grace frees us to be patiently and lovingly committed to each other’s good as we follow the pattern of our Savior.
Life in the World // Spreading the Glory of Christ
Believing the gospel gives us God’s heart for this lost and broken world. We long to leverage every part of our lives to welcome others to know the love of Christ. We are intentional and strategic in spreading the glory of Christ everywhere God has placed us.

Steve Krogh (wife Lois)
Steve serves as an elder of Christ Church. He placed his faith in Christ at the age of ten, when his mother explained the gospel to him. Lois' first awareness of God’s work in her heart was at the age of 5 listening to sermons at the church her family attended and she later came to the realization of the ugliness of her sin of pride which made her ready to hear the truth about God’s grace. The Kroghs met at Biola University and were married in 1981. They have six children and four grandchildren.
Steve served as the Senior Pastor of two churches, the Orland Evangelical Free Church in Orland, California (1985-1998) and Grace Community Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan (1998-2014).
