AcaciaChurch exists to inspire hope for a better life through Christ. 

That's our mission. That's our heartbeat. That's our purpose.


Our vision is to make it easy for you to get plugged in at AcaciaChurch... but most of all, we want to make it easy for you to get plugged into Jesus. Here's how we'll do both at Acacia:

1. FREEDOM - in Jesus.

2. CONNECTION - in community.

3. FULFILLMENT - in purpose.

1. Freedom

"So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery (to your old ways)." Galatians 5:1 We teach about freedom in Jesus in our StartingPoint classes. This 4-part series shares not only the story of Jesus but also the stories of Acacians who have found that freedom.

2. Connection

"And all the believers met together... worshipped together... met in homes... and shared their meals with great joy." Acts 2:44-46  For over 2,000 years, believers in christ have not only worshipped together but shared their lives together. They had more than Christ in common - they were part of a greater community. And that's exactly what you'll find at AcaciaChurch. Every week across the Greater Baton Rouge area, you'll find LifeGroups - small groups of Acacians - hanging out, talking about life, sharing their stories, and enjoying the company of other believers. Each group has a different focus, from studying the Old Testament to finding the best burger in town. At their core, they are all about creating relationships that matter. Read more about our amazing LifeGroups here, or if you have a specific question, email us here.

3. Fulfillment

"They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will...experience true life." 1 Timothy 6:18-19  Whoever you are, God gave you a unique set of gifts and skills We believe that you find true spiritual fulfillment when you share those gifts in service to others. You are wired to help others. It's in your DNA. It's the way He made you. But until you start using your gifts to help others, you'll never know what it's like. (And take our word for it: it's life-changing!) If you're ready to explore our ServeTeams and see how you can help others, click here.

our beliefs

While this brief web description is not the totality of our doctrinal beliefs, this will give you a quick snapshot. We believe that doctrine is more lived than written. In short: The sole basis for our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired and is the final authority on all matters on which it speaks. As the Bible teaches, there is one God. God has revealed Himself in three primary and personal ways. God, the Father of all, created humans to have fellowship with him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way, therefore severing that relationship. As a result, we need God's saving grace to end our separation from Him. Salvation comes by faith through God's grace - not human effort - and must be received personally by faith, repentance and baptism. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, yet fully God, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him as the Scriptures have said. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, yet fully God, fills and equips all believers for personal and spiritual growth as well as service to the Church and the Kingdom of God as described in the Scriptures. 

We believe that one's journey with our Creator begins with faith that leads to repentance. And while we greatly celebrate this amazing life-changing encounter, we're also excited to see all continue on that journey and experience the fullness of water and Spirit baptism as the original Apostles of Christ taught that lead to a life of "followership," which allows the teachings of Jesus to be brought into reality. We are available anytime to address any additional questions you may have. Email us or call us. 

OUR NAME... Acacia

Acacia (uh-ka'-shuh) is the type of wood that was used to build the Ark of the Covenant back in the Old Testament (see Exodus 25). The Ark of the Covenant was symbolic of two primary things - the Mercy Seat

of God and the Presence of God. At Acacia, we hope to facilitate an environment where the

Presence of God is so real that everyone there realizes they have access to the Mercy of God. 

We are a group of Spirit-led, Spirit-filled, Spirit-driven people who are hopelessly in love with Jesus Christ. 

We are a group of passionate, growing disciples who don't have it all figured out and we are willing to

take any risk necessary to further His Kingdom.
