We exist to remove unnecessary barriers that keep people from Jesus.
Traders Point is one church in multiple locations around Indianapolis. We have this conviction that Jesus is the only One who can change anyone, and He is available to everyone. All you need to do is trust Him, look to Him, follow Him and let Him do what only He can in your life. So we want to clear a path to get people to Him.
Whether you’ve been attending church your whole life, you’ve never once been inside a church, or maybe you’ve been hurt by a church in the past, one thing is true: we’re all looking for hope.
We believe Jesus is our hope, and we simply want you to know Him more. Jesus loves and accepts you as you are. The even better news is that He refuses to leave you the way He found you.
Read About Our History
Traders Point was started back in 1834, by a group of settlers with a desire to gather together to worship, and then to scatter to proclaim the name of Jesus to their community. And that’s still the heart of who we are today – not because it’s our idea of how church should work, but because it’s what the early Church did that we read about in the New Testament of the Bible.
Today, we are one church with locations all over Indianapolis, and we have a heart for our city.
We have a mission that, as a church, we feel called and deeply committed to. We say our mission like this: We exist to remove unnecessary barriers that keep people from Jesus. Our mission symbolizes our willingness to do whatever it takes for our friends, family, and neighbors near and far to have an encounter with Jesus. We lead with bold, courageous faith as we gather, scatter, and serve our city.
Our vision represents our dreams of what God might do if, as a church, we’re fully surrendered to Him. Our vision of being a multiplying movement as a church—not just add, but multiply. Right now, we’re living out that vision by starting Traders Point campuses across our city so that we can remove the unnecessary barrier of a drive that’s longer than 20 minutes to one of our locations.
Our values can be summed up by saying that we want to keep Jesus at the center of everything we do, and we want to live our lives in such a way that we point people to Jesus in everything we do. We want to be unapologetic followers of Jesus and carry His light into a dark and hurting world.
