We are FAMILY. We love one another sacrificially and selflessly (Ephesians 4.15-16).

We are STORYTELLERS. We have the greatest story to tell. It is not fantasy. It is not a textbook. It is God's love story to His creation about sending His Son Jesus Christ to die for us and restore the brokenness of sin (Acts 20.24; 1 Peter 3.15).

We are DISCIPLES. We follow Jesus and exemplify His love to one another and the world (John 13;35).  

We are AMBASSADORS. We represent Jesus in what we say and what we do (2 Corinthians 5.20).

We are SERVANTS. We embrace the responsibility to be the hands and feet of Jesus. (Mark 10.43-45; 2 Corinthians 4.5).

We are PIONEERS. We take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the farthest corners of our region and world, and we'll risk the ocean to do it (Acts 1.8).

Join us the last Sunday of each month to learn more about Legacy Church and for a Q&A session with our elders and staff.

"Shepherd the flock of God that is among you..." - 1 Peter 5.2
What are Elders?


“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace…” - 1 Peter 4.10



Everyone has a story. Our story begins with the legacy of Jesus Christ who was born to save the world from sin. After Jesus died on the cross, resurrected from the grave, and ascended into heaven, His followers told others of salvation found only in Jesus Christ. The story of Jesus continued to be shared over the centuries and it eventually reached Virginia.

In 2016 several families from Greene were determined to launch Legacy Church that built upon the initial work as a multisite campus for The Point. In July 2017 Gateway Church merged with Legacy to better serve the community together. We are a family of generational chain breakers who are building Christ’s legacy for future generations locally and globally.

Legacy Church is bigger than a name, bigger than a pastor or a denomination, bigger than a logo or a building. It is a movement of God at the base of our mountains for the glory of God and the good of our community.

We are Legacy Church. Our legacy is Jesus Christ.




In essential beliefs, we have unity.

“There is one Body and one Spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” (Ephesians 4:4-6)

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4;Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13)

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme objects of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2)

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. (John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15)

In non-essential beliefs, we have liberty.

“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” (Romans 14:1,4,12,22)

In all our beliefs, we show charity.

“…If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains — but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” (1 Corinthians 13:2)
