Phase 1 Process & Guidelines

   What's a gathering like?

  • Our gatherings begin with worship music, led by a live band. The words of the songs will be displayed on large screens. People will sing along, and maybe raise their hands. You are welcome to as well! We want you to participate as you feel comfortable.

  • After worship, one of our pastors will teach a lesson from the Bible, the Word of God. Our goal is to help all attendees to understand the Bible and apply it to their lives. The teaching will be practical and challenging, and hopefully you will find it helpful in growing your personal relationship with God.

  • On occasion, one of our pastors may give an “altar call,” a time to come forward and make a decision to follow Jesus. During an altar call, you may be asked to walk up to our stage as a public declaration of your faith. Although this action often shows an outward sign of an inward change, coming forward is not necessary to make a life changing decision for Christ.
  • One of the things that our church is known for is our verse-by-verse teaching from the Bible. Our pastors have the gift of taking each verse and applying it to our daily lives and situations. You can click the link below to browse our sermon library and see for yourself.
  • Our goal is for everyone at Coastal to feel comfortable and confident in their ability to read and understand the Bible. If you don’t own a Bible, we’d love to give you one. Stop by our Connections Desk after any service or call our office at 609-399-4747 to receive a free copy of the Bible. You can also download the Coastal Christian app through the App Store or Google Play.
Yes, that's why all the people sitting around you have their phones out during the gathering.
They're not texting! Well, most of them aren't. :)
