Petra Church is a multi-cultural, multi-national, multi-generational, and multi-directional church. Multi-cultural because we welcome each and every person, family, and culture. Multi-national, as we support missionaries who sacrifice their lives building churches in foreign countries. We are multi-generational in that we we reach for every age – the elderly lead the young, and the young lead the elderly. Finally, we are multi-directional because our focus is not on a church building - Petra is intentionally reaching beyond the four walls of a meeting room and going into the rural communities and small towns surrounding the Missoula area to reach "whosoever will."
Petra's heartbeat is to resemble and emulate the most effective and impactful church of all time - i.e., the body of Christ! The Bible shows us that the true church is not a denomination, it is not a religion, it is not organization - it is doing what Jesus did, going where Jesus went, and being what Jesus was. We believe you should be able to experience Jesus, not just hear about Him. Just click our "STORIES" page, and you will see with your own eyes how awesome Jesus Christ is - He truly changes lives. If He did it for us, He can do it for you!
