about us

We believe in doing life together.

Our Mission

Our One Purpose is to reach people where they are and lead them to full devotion in Jesus Christ.

Around here, we believe in making life-changing impact on our community and our world. We believe the good news of Jesus Christ is a message that is for all people, for all times.

We share that message and live it out through One Purpose, Shared Responsibility and Personal Devotion.  We believe in loving authentically, serving sacrificially, giving generously and sharing intentionally.

Our Story

Team Church began as a vision to reach people where they are. In 1998, Kenny and Kelly Hibbard moved to Charlotte to live out their God-given dream and start a church that would pursue people who had given up on the religion of their childhood or who had never been interested in God or church. Three other young couples joined in the vision and, on January 17, 1999, they held their first service at Crestdale Middle School in Matthews, NC.

Many years have passed since that first Sunday, but the vision has held true. Over the years, we have forged partnerships with local schools, organizations and churches, even helping resource and plant new churches along the way. We believe in the team effort that it takes to do life together, as a community, while living out God’s call and purpose on our lives. That’s why throughout the years, growth and evolution of Team Church, we’ve remained focused on that initial vision to reach people where they are and lead them to full devotion in Christ.

Our Values

The following values define our core. They are our DNA, our basic operating principles and what makes our community unique: team, authentic relationships, culturally relevant, Biblical truth, missional, strategic evangelism, focused discipleship and worship.

The Bible tells us that God desires to be in a relationship with us and give us a full life. That life he desires to give us includes such things as peace, purpose and fulfillment. God did not create humankind to be robots who would automatically love Him in return. He gave man a will and the freedom of choice. Man chose to disobey God and go his own way. This resulted in the separation between God, who is holy and perfect, and man, who is sinful and imperfect. The result of this separation is death. The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) This problem still exists today, and because we choose to disobey God and go our own willful way, we are separated from God.

Jesus Christ has made it possible for us to cross over that gap to God’s side and experience the full life he wants us to have. But, we are not automatically on God’s side. We must take action! You need to ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and give you His life. The Bible tells us, “Yet to all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12)

Here is how you can receive Christ today: ADMIT that you are a sinner in need of a Savior. ACKNOWLEDGE that Jesus’ death and resurrection is the only way to eternal life. ACCEPT Jesus into your life.

Adult Baptism

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ set the standard by being baptized by water. The Bible teaches that baptism should follow your decision to become a believer. Every person who believes in Christ should be baptized. A believer is someone who has realized that their sin separated them from God. They have given up all efforts to reach God through good works or religious activity. They have concluded that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for their sins is the only thing that can bridge the gap between them and God. A believer is someone who has decided to trust Christ alone for their salvation. If you have come to that point in your spiritual journey, then you are ready to be baptized.

Child Baptism

You might be wondering why we don’t baptize children at their parent’s request. In the Bible we find parents bringing children to Jesus. He held them and prayed for them, and He told us to welcome them, but He did not baptize them nor tell anyone else to. The New Testament shows no examples of baptism when the candidate did not request it. All instances of baptism followed an individual’s decision to trust Christ alone for his or her salvation (Acts 10:47-48). At Team Church, we wait until a child is old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism. Once a child has made the decision to trust Christ, we will gladly baptize them.

While we wait for a child to be old enough to choose and understand baptism, we do have child dedications where parents can make known their commitment to raise their little ones according to Christian values and beliefs. These dedications are held at different times throughout the year. If you are interested in dedicating your child, contact us to learn more.


We believe that making a commitment to join the local church is a meaningful and significant aspect of your ongoing journey to becoming a fully-devoted follower of Christ. The local church is the avenue of hope that God uses to impact the world. At Team Church we have made this important process as simple as possible, but we take this commitment seriously.

Becoming a member of Team Church is  part of The Team Church Way classes. We invite you to join us in completing all four classes, which are part of our Spiritual Growth Continuum. In these classes, you will learn everything you need to know about our church and your God-given SHAPE, so that you can continue to grow into a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

These classes are held during the 2nd service on Sunday mornings. We hope you’ll join us.
