-We believe Merge exists to see all people experience the Good News of God's Love in a way that impacts their whole life-

 

REAL PEOPLE

All walks of life, under every home. People who love God, and people who may find themselves far from Him. Whether you have been to a church or heard of one once. People who live life, pay bills, struggle with goals, dream dreams, have hobbies. People who read the Bible and people who don’t own one. People who have it all together, who try to have it all together, who try to make it seem like they have it all together, and people who don’t have it all together. Simply put, all people.

AUTHENTIC CONNECTION

Merging is when two separate things meet and combine to form one entity. All people, real people, are searching for a connection. We all are looking to merge with something. Every day people find out that what we merge with dictates where we go and end up. Some of us have ended up at the wrong place, and some are still waiting to merge. The question is, what is the right thing we need to merge with. The answer is simple, yet profound. The only thing purposed for us to merge with is Jesus. The authentic connection happens in so many ways, but when it does, where you’re going doesn’t matter as much as why you’re going there.

TRUE GOD

Our culture and world is filled with fake. Some are knock-offs trying to be like the real thing, others don’t even know they are fake. The only thing that is 100% real-deal, is Jesus himself. He is the way, the truth, the life and everything in-between. 


Who is Merge?

We Are Intentionally Present
Jesus went places His followers wanted to avoid. In our communities, our workplaces, our schools, our homes, the call to "Merge" is an invitation to discover purpose and experience God's love.

//Romans 12:1-2//


We are a bible believing Church

Everything begins and ends with Scripture.

//2 Timothy 3:16//


We Are Better Together
We are created for relationships. Us to God. Us to others. Better together. Learning how to love God. Learning how to love our neighbor. There's no such thing as a "Lone Ranger" Christian. Coming Together is the Merge way.

//2 John 3:16//


We Are Co-Creators

Spiritual contributors, not just spiritual consumers. Our passions and abilities are God's gift to us. What we do with it is our gift to God. Innovation. Creativity. Joy. Expression. We are invited to collaborate with God, to "participate in His divine nature!"

//Philippians 2:12-13//


We Laugh. A Lot.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine". Serving God is fun, and sharing life with others is awesome! Sure, life hands out some bumps and bruises, but laughter is simply the result of experiencing God's love and building healthy relationships!

//Proverbs 17:22//


We Dream Big. We Start Small.
We serve the God of immeasurably more and when we place our faith in Him, He expands our hearts to help others. At the same time, before we have a vision for thousands, let's have a passion for one.

//Ephesians 3:20-21//


We Don't Do Performances.
Every word. Every action. And not just the ones on stage. When our hearts are centered on Jesus and focused on others, our words and actions will minister to others, both seen and unseen. Everything is ministry from what happens in the parking lot to what occurs on stage.

//1 Peter 4:10//


Merge Launch Plan


Mayfield, Ohio is considered a collection of cities/towns comprised of Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Gates Miles and Highland Heights. Mayfield is a beautiful mix of memorable traditions and upcoming change and transition. Over the years, Mayfield has grown into a combination of both white-collar and blue-collar classes, multigenerational and multiethnic. Mayfield is home to one of the best school systems in the state, drawing families of all ages to be a part of a community that shares a small-town feel within a big city reach.

 Because of this, the community of Mayfield is home to people of all walks of life. We desire to see all people experience an authentic relationship with God, and know that they are important and full of purpose

 


 


"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen!"

Ephesians 3:20-21
