Our Story

How it all started...

Mill Creek Church began serving in the Rochester IN area in 1996. Chris and Kim Beall came in the fall of 2003 and God began to open up doors for a ministry that was based on three basic principles: Real - Family - Life.

Simply put, we are real people, with real problems, on real journeys, seeking a real God.  On some issues, there is no negotiation, on others, grace and willingness to differ.  We like music fast and loud, we like it slow and meditative.  We dress up and we dress comfortably.  We are young and we are experienced.  We are simple and we are passionate.  We are the Church and we believe, God's hope for a lost and hurting world!

Are you a Creeker?

Well, let's find out...

  • ARE YOU REAL? You know, just yourself. Honest. Authentic. With perhaps a few flaws you could do without, but some really good things you'd like to improve on.
  • DO YOU LOVE FAMILY? Not necessarily your own (although we would hope so). Do you like just being together with others, sharing your stories, and appreciating the journey's of others.
  • DO YOU WANT MORE LIFE? More energy. More passion. More to live for than just yourself.

If any or all of the above sound good to you, you just might be a Creeker. People who come to the table with things to give, a few things they'd like to change, and a God they'd like to know and serve better. At Mill Creek, we don't "do" church. We are the church. As real as it gets. All day, every day. If that sounds good to you, take a look around our website or, better yet, come for a visit.

May you find us real. Consider us family. And ready to do life.

Where we are headed...

As long as people need to find peace and hope. As long as people are searching for significance and value. As long as a hurting world needs to find grace, we will be here sharing the story of Jesus.

It's a story of real life. It's a story about invitations. An invitation to relationship and family.

You are invited. To relationship with Jesus and to Mill Creek. We would love to have you on the journey with us.
