Life Changing Encounters With God

Pastor Russ Hines


Thanks for visiting our website.  Please allow me to take a moment and give you a brief, but hopefully concise, description of what it means to be a member of our church.

Our people come from all over the Kansas City area. From the suburbs to the inner-city. Diversity is the norm at Open Door. Our membership represents every ethnic group in our area. People are judged by their relationship and commitment to Christ, not the color of their skin or their social standing.

Discipleship is the mission of our church. Our members are serious about discipleship! It is the mandate for every member. We believe that Jesus has called us to Himself not to be spectators but participants in His kingdom work. Everyone is encouraged to develop a relationship with God and each other, to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to lead others to Christ for salvation and spiritual maturity.Finally, we are committed to living life according to a biblical worldview. We believe the principles in the Word of God are unchanging. We will not allow society to dictate how we live. Christ, not culture, determines our morality and lifestyle. 

I hope I have given you an idea of what it means to be a member of our fellowship. If you would like more details or have any questions, please feel free to call me at 913-334-7777 ext. 223

In His Service,

Pastor Russ Hines
