About Us

Why we exist

At Radiant our joy is to befriend and serve people authentically, to live genuinely, and to worship freely. We believe our identity is found in Christ, and when we find our identity we discover our purpose. Our calling. Our destiny.

Radiant exists to bring people of every nation and every tribe together to worship as one family. At Radiant, you will see people with diverse backgrounds, different areas of life, and from very different places around the world all gathering together as one family.

Whether you are coming from a place of hurt or joy, and regardless of if you have been a Christian for years or this is your first time in a church atmosphere, Radiant is a place where we invite you to find your place in our family and to find your identity in Christ.

We are not perfect. But Jesus is. Come as you are.

Through Radiant their heart is to see people find their identity and to discover their destiny.

A Radiant Experience

Our message is clear because His love is greater than we know. Our worship is loud because His grace is greater than anything we could imagine. Our movement is to gather together as one family with many differences and to scatter and serve to share what we have experienced through the Gospel.
