When Martha and I started Jacob's Well in 1977, we wanted to do church like you would do church as if you had never been. Most people think church is one hour of hell every week so they don't have to go when they die. Church should be heaven on earth every week so you don't have culture shock when you go. As we sought God for His pattern, church became a place of fun, great music and worship, and the joy of opening God's Word and learning concepts from heaven full of practical answers for life. It became family, interracial, inter-generational, and a place where every person can find dignity no matter where they've come from.
It's always been our dream to have a place where you can relax, be yourself, love and be loved unconditionally, and enjoy an atmosphere full of freedom.
"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope one day you will join us..."
