Our Story


We are a family of believers gathering in South Riding, Virginia.

As a church family, we look like Northern Virginia — ethnically diverse, young & old, rich & poor.

Where did we come from?

We began in 1994 as a desire in the heart of Mike & Betty Aylestock to launch a new church family in the Route 50 corridor of Loudoun County. That dream became a reality in 1995 as we were commissioned by Fairfax Baptist Temple (Fairfax, Virginia) and began meeting in rented facilities in the Lafayette Business Park between Chantilly and the new South Riding community.

Establishing our permanent home in South Riding took an exciting turn when we purchased our current site in 1999.

The dream of moving into South Riding escalated when we broke ground on our property in 2008 and was fully realized when we moved into our new facility in 2009.

Mike continues to serve as pastor and Betty continues to serve alongside her husband. We meet every week as a family of committed followers of Jesus Christ. Our passion is to know Him (Jesus Christ) and to make Him known in the South Riding area and around the world.

Jesus Christ has enriched our lives. That has instilled in us a desire to worship & serve Him. It would be our joy to serve Him by serving you and your family.
