We are a church for the city that exists to cultivate missional followers of Jesus. We do this as a group of ordinary, flawed people who are grateful to have a part in God’s mission to make all things new here in Charlotte.
Our name, Warehouse 242, tells a story. Yes, we meet in an old trucking terminal, but it goes deeper than that. A warehouse is a place where everything is in motion, where things come in but don’t stay there for long. Our church is similar. We love gathering and growing together, but this propels us to move out into the city to make culture and love our neighbors. The 242 in our name is a reference to a verse in the New Testament of the Bible (Acts 2:42) that describes how the first followers of Jesus adopted the same pattern: gathering together to learn, pray, and support each other and then going out to serve their neighbors and spread the good news.
No church should be an island, and we are grateful to be connected to a global network of churches called the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC for short), which values being Presbyterian, Reformed, Evangelical and Missional. We resonate with the EPC’s statement of essential beliefs regarding the Bible, God, his mission through Jesus and the Spirit, the good news about relationship with him, and our life together as the church.
