Transformed people, transforming our world.

You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world.” With these words, Jesus clearly taught the purpose of the church and of individual believers. Salt and light are objects that invade and transform their environment. Christ transforms believers (making us a new creation), and then uses us to transform our world. We are world changers, changed by the love of Christ and changing our world with his love. Transformed by His love, transforming our world with His love.

We want to be believers who passionately live in Christ and live out Christ. As we live in relationship with Christ we are transformed by His truth and love. As we reach and live out the nature of Christ to others they are touched by His truth and love.



“For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me upon a high rock.” (Psalm 27:5)

Maybe your marriage is going through “the time of trouble.” Maybe you know someone else who is struggling in marriage, or a husband and wife who just need to get away.

That’s the purpose of The Hideaway: to provide a place for wounded marriages to be healed and broken marriages to be restored. Nestled in a luxurious, secluded setting—more like a high-end spa than a rustic retreat—The Hideaway combines professional counseling, small-group therapy, and the serenity of isolation to forge an atmosphere where miracles happen.

Marriage is our passion and ministry at The Hideaway. Healthy marriages lead to healthy families, and healthy families result in fulfilling lives. We believe God has an amazing marriage in store for you. We want to help you find it.
