Our mission at Palm Vista is to be the church in the places where we live, work and play – to live lives of faith, hope and love that everyone can see, not for our glory but for God’s.  We seek to worship God with our lives, engage in authentic community with those around us and perform meaningful acts of service that make a real difference in the lives of others.  In this way, we hope to share the Good News about Jesus with our community and others like it, leading people into a growing relationship with Him.

infants & Children

The Reef Children’s Ministry at Palm Vista is committed to making God real for children six weeks – 6th grade by sharing the truth of God’s Word with each child at their own level.  Caring leaders are trained and background checked. We know your children will experience God’s love through our team, and they will want to come back!


Connext Student ministry is here to serve the purpose of connecting the next generation to Jesus. We do this by plugging students into the Gospel message, investing biblical truths into their lives, and encouraging them to get others plugged in as well.



At the heart of Palm Vista is our understanding of worship. At Palm Vista you will encounter the great hymns of our faith as well as songs right off the press. Whatever, we do in worship our goal is to bring glory to our great God. We have coined the phrase, "God-Honoring, Worship" to describe our approach to corporate worship.

Bible groups

At Palm Vista, we believe spiritual growth and connection are vital. We also believe that there are certain things that you can only learn in relation to others. For that reason, we challenge every person to be involved in a Bible Group. All our Bible Groups do three essential things: Pray, Study the Word of God, & Do life together.


Palm Vista's missional initiatives are both local and global and give people on every level the opportunity to share the love of Christ with a hurting world.
