Our Hope for YouA Place to Call Home

McCord Road Christian Church looks to the first church in Acts as our role model. The early Christians loved one another – not only in word, but also in actions. For over 50 years, our church has been committed to welcoming the people of Sylvania and beyond into relationship with Jesus Christ.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible:

  • A church with relevant, life-giving, Bible-based teaching that empowers you to move forward in your spiritual journey
  • Consistently inspiring and heart-felt worship
  • Authentic and loving friendships
  • Compassionate care and support for those in need.In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage our entire community, one life at a time.

So whether you’re looking for direction in your spiritual life or looking to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at McCord Road.

OUR Beliefs

Each Christian is encouraged to approach the Scripture in their own personal study and discover for themselves what the Bible teaches. While we stand firm on some doctrinal topics, we allow for diversity of thought on many issues. We believe that diversity—when accompanied by dialogue, love, and mutual respect—is far more healthy than intolerant uniformity. As the early founders of our church proclaimed; “In essentials of our faith, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, love.” We agree to disagree agreeably, and in all things to love each other. The following is a summary of some historic beliefs of the church taught here at McCord Road.

We look forward to meeting you!
