Casual. Contemporary. Christian.
FUSION meets in an art gallery, The DeFoor Centre, just a few exits north of downtown Atlanta.
At least 80% or more of the attendants are Young Adults in their 20’s and 30’s. Many are unchurched or just coming back to church.
FUSION is a new emerging faith community of people who are passionate about Jesus and His incredible love and grace. We are casual and contemporary… a safe place for you to explore life, faith, and God and not worry about where you’ve been or what you’ve done. We’re not worried about it and welcome and accept anyone – no matter your age, ethnicity, style (or lack of style), background, beliefs, doubts, fears and failures.
We understand that each of us is on a journey and we want you to be true to yourself in exploring spiritual depth. We believe that as you do, along with us, God will be more fully revealed – along with His love and grace, forgiveness and healing, peace and hope, laughter and joy, as well as the purpose and meaning for our lives.
Some churches are creative and have a lot of fun. Other churches dig deep into the Bible. A few churches are great at connecting people. FUSIONchurch aims to be all three.
Unleashing the Power of Together
FUSION is the process of atomic nuclei uniting together at the sun and the difference in mass between them is released as power. We feel that power at over 93 Million miles away!
When we come together in unity around the Son of God, Jesus Christ, God’s power is released in our lives and felt at far-reaching distances. As we lay down our differences and unite in Christ, we unleash the power of together!
United together in Christ, we are a powerful force for good.
Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one;
they get a better return for their labor.
~Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NLT)
FUSIONchurch has no mission apart from God. It’s not the church’s mission but rather it is God’s mission. We are simply joining God in what He is already doing.
FUSIONchurch is UNLEASHING THE POWER OF TOGETHER through God’s mission:
Search. Find. Form. Send.
God searched for me. I will search for others.
God found me and is forming me into something new.
God will find others through me and form them into a new creation.
As Jesus Christ was sent for us, and then sent us, we send each other…
To go… and make followers of Jesus.
When we gather, God’s power is unleashed in us and then through us as we go back out on His mission. Many churches gather for a worship service and stop there. America is home to many 1-hour Christians every week, practical atheists, who “believe” in God but don’t live like it matters.
We gather to…
“Encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds.”
~ (Hebrews 10:24,25)
We cannot separate the Word of God from the work of God. The church, as the body of Christ, is not only the mouth for Jesus but also His hands and feet.
FUSIONchurch seeks to impact the lives of others in significantly measurable and tangible ways – to fight injustice and oppression, to relieve hunger and poverty, and ultimately to inspire and restore purpose through the abundant life Jesus offers humanity through selfless love and giving.
For thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out… I will feed My flock and I will lead them to rest,” declares the Lord GOD. “I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick.”
~ Ezekiel 34:11-16

We are holding a 21-Day Prayer Campaign from March 1-21, leading up to our Grand Opening. You can log onto Facebook and post a prayer on our Group page beginning March 1.
May the mission of God come alive in Young Adults… may they be empowered to live for Christ and share the Good News of salvation by grace through faith, and tell of His glorious return and the hope in everlasting life… may they seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick… may they BE THE CHURCH by being the hands and feet of Jesus.
