HELPING MORE PEOPLE

EXPERIENCE A FULL LIFE

IN JESUS CHRIST



ONE CHURCH, 

MANY EXPERIENCES

Join our CE family and grow in your personal relationship with God, build long-term friendships with great people, experience powerful worship music together, hear an inspiring message from the Bible, and make a difference with your life through serving!  We also have Kid Experience (birth to 5th grade) and Student Experience (6th-12th grade).  We have the strength of being 'one church', but every CE location is a unique local experience.  Each campus has a Lead Pastor, groups, local outreach, and more!  We're saving a spot for you!

OUR STORY

On January 11, 2014 Brandon & Jennifer Bruce arrived in the Clearwater (FL) area with a God-given vision to start a new church.  On January 19, 2014, 9 adults and 6 kids gathered in an apartment living room in Clearwater.  Then, exactly one year from when the Bruce family arrived, Church Experience launched on January 11, 2015.  It was an incredible moment that impacted hundreds of people, but only the beginning of a greater movement to help more people experience a full life in Jesus Christ!  Since that time, a growing number of people have experienced God's amazing grace and love!  In 2019, First Christian Church of Dunedin (FL) began discussion about merging into Church Experience, which was made official early the following year.  In early 2020, a launch team began to form in Wesley Chapel (FL) to start a new CE campus!  After much prayer and planning, God began to birth our "Better Together" vision making CE "one church with many experiences".  CE is not a denomination, network, or association (we are "one church") and we offer unique customized ministry in each community with a Lead Pastor at each location ("many experiences").  New campuses are being added regularly through church planting and through mergers.  We believe we're only experiencing the first chapter of the great story God is writing through this church to help more people experience a full life in Jesus Christ!

ORIGINAL MUSIC

Church Experience Worship periodically releases new professionally recorded original worship music.  The name of our first album and song was Yet To Come.  We believe God has only begun His work in and through Church Experience, so the theme of this song has become infused into our vision as we truly believe the best is yet to come for those who believe in Jesus!

OUR MISSION

We are passionate about Jesus!  We believe everyone matters!  Our beliefs are firmly based on the Bible.  We are a loving church family and care deeply about our mission to help more people experience a full life in Jesus Christ.
