About Us

Pastor Sanford YoderAs a follower of Jesus Christ, I welcome you to consider the Good News of the Kingdom of God. Jesus Christ is the center of our faith, community is the center our lives and reconciliation is the center of our work. At AMC, we are seeking to build community at three levels: the large gathering on Sunday morning, the CARE Groups of 10-12 and the DNA-Peer groups of 2-3. We are shifting from an attractional model of church to an incarnational one where being an apprentice or student of Jesus is brought back into the heart of both our everyday lives and our church life.


Our mission is:
“To live the teachings of Jesus Christ, and show God’s love to all through faithful discipleship, service, evangelism, and missions by the empowering of the Holy Spirit.”

Our core values: 
At Asheville Mennonite Church, we value sharing our gifts of compassion, generosity and hospitality to restore relationships and build a community of believers where Jesus is the center.
