Who We Are
On February 14, 2016, Pastors Nathan & Crystal planted Ridgeline Church Inc. through a church planning organization called The ARC (Association of Related Churches.)
We are passionate about the presence of God and reaching Asheville with the life-changing power of that presence.
In 2019 we also joined ANGA (The Apostolic Network of Global Awakening.)
Until Asheville Looks Like Heaven!
To be a movement that changes an entire city.
To help people create and renew their relationship with God, while connecting them with their God-given purpose.
To create warm, life-giving environments that feel like home.
We are a presence center, a place where our city can experience God's presence. God knows how to meet every need, and the local church is His extension to the community to do just that.
We are a healing center, where our city can experience God in healing and restoration, both physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
We are a creative center, where the creativity of God is expressed through not only music, but all of the arts.
We are a discipleship center, where people are not only taught about God but are also given opportunities and challenged to operate as a fully devoted follower of Christ - knowing their spiritual gifts and operating in them.
We are a community, a place for everyone wherever they are in life. We are a community that will walk with people through their best days and worst days.
The Story of the Prodigal Son
We love the story of the prodigal son because, for the most part, all of us can relate in one way or another. In the story (told by Jesus himself), there are two sons. The younger son leaves home and makes some choices most of us would consider to be immoral: partying, hookers, the works.
The older son stays home and works on the family farm.
One day, long after all of the younger son's money has run out, it dawns on him to just go home. He's reluctant because he thinks his dad will be angry with him. But upon his arrival home, he finds the opposite is true. Dad is not mad - he's happy. He is excited even. And there's a huge party.
Often, we go through life with the same view of God the younger son had of his dad. God will be mad, or angry, or upset if I come home, but the truth is He is anticipating your arrival with great excitement, just like the dad in the story. Welcome home!
