Who We Are

Stonewater is a non-denominational church affiliated with Global Legacy, which is a network of churches connected with Bethel Church in Redding, CA.

We are a group of people who are very passionate about God and His kingdom, and how we as His followers can help others experience HIS Love. We love our community, our city and those who have yet to experience the goodness and love of God.

Our community is founded on worship, prayer, God’s presence, continuing revival, miracles and healing, and where honor is cultivated.  If you are a first time visitor, or have recently decided this is your family, we want to welcome you and encourage you to get involved.

We Are About Revival…The personal, regional, and global expansion of God’s kingdom through His manifest presence..

What We Believe

Our number one priority is our personal relationship with God. Our first ministry is to God with extravagant joy and gratitude.

Freedom through Salvation.  Salvation frees us from the power of the devil – sin, lies, sickness and torment. (The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came to bring life, and that more abundantly.)

Supernatural Ministry of the gospel of power. All ministry flows from the prayer “Thy kingdom come… on earth as it is in heaven”.  We equip and send the church to carry on the signs and wonders that followed Jesus.

Impact through Love & Power serving a city, not just a church, we demonstrate God’s grace by impacting every sphere with His unconditional love and transforming power.  Christ is returning for a glorious, overcoming bride – His Church.   We are sons and daughters of the King, more than “sinners saved by grace.”  We aim to fulfill the Great Commission and steward revival to the next generation.  We embrace the biblical government of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.

We believe The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.  All prophecy, words of knowledge and supernatural experience must be filtered through the lens of scripture.

If you reach a child when he is young, you can impact him for life. Over 80% of Christians make decisions for Christ before age 14.

 We are a community of believers who are passionate about the things of God…And Relationship with God.  We seek God, His Kingdom and Presence, that we may be divinely empowered to love and heal. God loves us without conditions and we worship Him unreservedly and share His amazing love with others.”

Our Ministries

Healing Prayer Ministry

Jesus’s ministry was marked by healing. In Matt 9:35, it says Jesus healed all their sicknesses    and all their diseases. In Matt. 28:18 Jesus said    all authority has been given to Him, and for His followers to model him, teaching others to obey all that he commanded. When asked about the evidence of His ministry Jesus said, “The blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the dead are raised, and the good  news is preached to the poor.”

Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s ministry is developing now, and our goal is for all children to know that they are loved unconditionally by God, and to inspire them to respond to that love.

We want them to experience the joy and freedom of worship with song and movement, the delight in hearing God’s word where they are at, and to be empowered to share what they are learning.

Heaven in Business

Stonewater Supports Heaven in Business, which is an initiative of Bethel Church, Redding, CA.

We agree we are all on a personal  journey of partnering more with God at work. We also believe it will never end.  We won’t stop until we see the fullness of what Christ paid for manifest in our lives, business, communities and nations.  You do have something to teach all of us, what would you like to see changed in our community, your business and those we serve?
