We exist to leverage our lives for the good of the lost and the Lord.

History

Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

When Palm Vista began meeting at Dysart High School in February 1998, the fledgling church faced an important strategic decision: should it focus on impacting the communities north of Bell Road or the communities south of it? Rather than choosing to focus exclusively on one or the other, the members of Palm Vista decided to reach out to both. Palm Vista had a vision of people of all ages, races, and nationalities coming together to worship God, grow in their faith in Him, and make their faith known.

When we moved into our current building in November 1999, the family communities that now lie to our south were yet to be constructed, so our early church enrollment was primarily senior adults, but things quickly changed. Surprise Farms became a flourishing family community, and our church collectively renewed its commitment to reach people at all stages of life. And now with the completion the Loop 303 our church is easily connected to communities both to the north and south of Surprise.


Along the way we have added educational space for our church on the weekends and for use for our schools (Palms Christians School and Preschool) throughout the week. Most recently we constructed a new worship center and moved into it in June 2015. This allowed us to remodel our original worship center into a children-friendly building that we now call “The Reef”. It is complete with an underwater adventure theme that allows for a fun and relaxed environment for our children to learn about God.
 Palm Vista has grown from those early days in the Dysart High School into a congregation of 1000 plus worshippers on Sunday. But more than that we have grown into a vision of being a church in the West Valley that is biblical, relevant, and missional. God has inspired us to reach out in His name to our area schools, at-risk children in the foster care system, and mission causes here and around the world. We invite you to consider coming alongside us as we write the next chapter in the Palm Vista story!
