Welcome to The Sanctuary, located in the great city of Saint Louis, Missouri. I’m glad that you’ve taken time to visit our home on the web.
As you explore our site, you’ll find more information about our church, inspiration and educational articles, sermon recordings, and hopefully answers to your questions. If you develop any questions that aren’t addressed here, don’t hesitate to contact us.
This site is dedicated to all the people who have been ostracized by churches, judged by religious bigots, rejected by their families and isolated by their diversity. The hurt, and even frustration with “religion” is not felt by any single individual. We share the burning desire to “do church” the right way–the Jesus-way. You are cordially invited to come share in the healing and restoration that only true love provides, for it is abundant at the safe place–The Sanctuary!
Our hearts, our arms, and our doors are open to you. White or Black, gay or straight, rich or poor, you are welcome at The Sanctuary, where the beauty of your individuality isn’t just tolerated, it’s truly celebrated. You’ve probably heard something like that before; but at The Sanctuary, we really mean it!
We’re a terrific group of sincere, loving people who are striving to represent the heart of Jesus in the face of so many negative representations of Him! That’s a pretty tall order these days. The Christian Church has done such a poor job of presenting the heart of Christ to the world–not just in our words, but in our actions. We’re trying to play our small part in restoring people’s confidence in the faith, and especially in the Person of our Savior, Jesus!
