Core Values

Refuge Church in Raleigh NC is a local gathering of Christ followers who are seeking to glorify God by pursuing a greater love for Jesus, one another, and our world.

We currently meet on Sunday mornings at New Life Camp in the North Raleigh area (9927 Falls of Neuse Rd.) And, we are a short drive from Wake Forest, NC.

These are some of our Core Values:

Preaching and the Word of God

Our goal as a church is to place ourselves under the authority of the Word of God in all that we do. We believe the Word of God is truth, reveals the character of God to us, and leads us to Jesus. As we listen to God through his word, we are transformed into the likeness of Christ. We believe one of the most effective ways to do this is by preaching through books of the Bible; explaining the meaning of the passage and its application for our lives.

You can listen to our sermons here.


We believe that worshiping together through song is commanded by God for his glory and our benefit. We value praising God together and aim to create an atmosphere that invites participation instead of passive observation. Every week, we carefully choose songs whose lyrics will fill us with gospel truth we can all sing together.


We value the presence of families and children among us. It is our joy to teach the next generation the precious truths of God’s Word and make the gospel clear to them. For this reason, we are intentional about our children’s ministries being times of discipleship.


At Refuge, we believe God has called us and designed us to share life together. Our weekly Life Group meetings are opportunities to gather in a more intimate setting where we pray for one another, learn from each other, and walk with one another toward Jesus.


Our conviction as a church is that the gospel, the good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, should be proclaimed and on display everytime we gather. We never want to move on from the gospel. We need to be reminded on a regular basis that we’re not perfect, but we worship a perfect Savior, Jesus Christ.
