Upcoming Series

Making Sense of God

September 20 - October 25

Making Sense of God leads us to trustworthy information that will make us more confident and hopeful in our spiritual journeys.

Before Christmas

November 29 - December 27

During this series, we will discover that not only was Jesus the Savior the people of Israel had been waiting for, he is the Savior we need now.

Starting Over

January 10 - February 7

We all have regrets from the past. Many of them come from our attempts to fulfill unmet longings. The problem is many of us get stuck in our regrets and seem unable to move forward.

Our Team

We are a fun and passionate group working together, with you, to connect people with God and each other.

Stephen Feith

Lead Pastor

Stephen didn’t get involved with church until he was a young adult. He led the team that came to Wisconsin to start Madison Church. Stephen loves the way MC helps people discover God and develop relationships.

Alyssa Ochogi

Executive Assistant to the Lead Pastor

Alyssa grew up in a Southern Baptist church. Her family found our church online. Alyssa’s favorite part of the Madison Church community is the people who make it feel “like coming home.”

Megan Feith

KidMin Director

Megan has gone to church as far back as she can remember, attending the same church for most of her childhood. Stephen and her are married, so she’s been with us since the very beginning. Megan loves that our church feels like a family, encouraging one another in our spiritual journeys.

Rebecca Swartz

Creative Arts Director

Rebecca has gone to churches of varying denominations her whole life. She found Madison Church when she received a welcome postcard in the mail and was drawn to the mission statement of “connecting people with God and each other.”

Briana Lawton

Facility Teams Director

Briana had no church background prior to attending Madison Church. She discovered our church when a coworker invited her. Briana loves the friendly people and environment, and says the messages are awesome.

Our Mission

Connecting People with God and Each Other.

Grow Spiritually

Connecting People with God.

We connect with God when we grow spiritually. Growing spiritually occurs through baptism, daily Bible-reading, and praying regularly.

Gather Together

Connecting People with the Church.

We connect with the Church when we gather together. Gathering together means being involved in a small group, eating together, and resolving conflict.

Give Back

Connecting People with the World.

We connect with the world when we give back. Giving back includes volunteering, giving, and sharing our story.

Baptism

Our relationship with Jesus begins by responding to God’s offer of salvation by believing in Jesus for forgiveness of sin, eternal life, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The response includes repenting of our old way of life and accepting our new call to follow Jesus. It includes the public act of baptism where we follow Jesus’s example and demonstrate our commitment to him by being immersed as an act of our own will.

Small Groups

Jesus chose a group of twelve men to be in his inner circle of relationships. He spent lots of time with these men, shared important conversations and events with them, and just lived daily life with them. We are committed to the type of genuine biblical community the first Christians practiced. This is best lived out in the context of small groups. We actively participate in these groups and serve as catalysts to connect others into them.

Generosity

Jesus endorsed the practice of tithing (giving God the first 10% of everything we have). But he went further in challenging us to live financially generous lives. He cautioned against storing up wealth, challenged us to be wise stewards of what we’ve been given, and commended radical generosity. We seek to align ourselves with these biblical principles by living financially generous lives, starting with a tithe and moving toward a life of radical generosity.

Values

Jesus is Lord

The claim of the one God over every aspect of every life, and the response of his people to that claim.

Disciple-Making

The irreplaceable and lifelong task of becoming like Jesus by embodying his message.

Missional-Incarnational Impulse

The dynamic outward thrust and related deepening impulse, which together seed and embed the gospel into different cultures and people groups.

Community

The most vigorous forms of community are those that come together in the context of a shared ordeal or those that define themselves as a group with a mission that lies beyond themselves.

Organic Systems

The idea of appropriate structures for growth and movement.

A.P.E.S.T. Culture

The active presence of the apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, shepherding, and teaching (APEST) functions-ministries.

We Are A Nondenominational Church

What We Believe

God

We believe there’s one divine being who has existed eternally. He exists and reveals himself to humankind in three distinct, but equally divine, persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Humankind

God created humans to live in relationship with him. However, the first man and woman were deceived by Satan and rebelled. They chose to be wrongfully independent from God. All of us are deceived by Satan, and also rebel against God. This rebellion results in condemnation under God’s judgment and would cause us to spend eternity in hell. Furthermore, there’s nothing we can do on our own to reestablish our relationship with God.

A Relationship With God

Our inability to reestablish our relationship with God leaves us dependent on God’s mercy. God graciously provided the means to reconcile this relationship through faith in Jesus Christ. Our relationship is reestablished when we make a commitment to accept Jesus as God’s son and our Savior and Lord. We demonstrate our commitment privately by faith (acting upon our belief that God has the power to save us) and repentance (turning back to God and depending on him to control our lives). At the same time, we publicly express our commitment by confessing our acceptance of God’s salvation and submitting ourselves in baptism.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the eternal divine Son of God. Although he lived a sinless life, he allowed himself to be executed by crucifixion. However, as prophesied, he rose from the dead three days after his execution.

The Christian Life

Once our relationship is reestablished with God, we naturally want to spend time with him and know him better. The process of spiritual development motivates us to seek ways to serve God and prepares us to spend eternity in fellowship with him.

The Holy Spirit

The third person of God is the Holy Spirit. Christians are entitled to, should expect, and ought to seek the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This was the normal experience of all in the Early Church. His indwelling presence gives spiritual life to believers and distinguishes us as children of God. The Holy Spirit guides us in applying God’s principles, and equips us with power and gifts for the purpose of building up God’s kingdom.

The Church

The Bible speaks of the Church as Jesus’ body. It compares it to a living organism, where Jesus is the head. He gives each Christian special functions to perform for the good of the body. To remain healthy, the body’s members must work together. Each part contributes to the growth and maturity of the body. For this reason, it is important for Christian to regularly gather together for the purposes of growing spiritually and giving back.

Divine Healing

Deliverance from sickness is provided for by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and is the privilege of all believers. Divine healing is an integral part of the Gospel.

The Bible

God divinely inspired human authors to write the sixty-six books of the Bible. He communicated through these writers the values, principles, and ideals which please him and are in our best interests. We believe the Bible is entirely accurate, complete, and reliable.

The Second Coming

Plan Your Visit

I'm New

Get Connected

Madison Church exists to connect people with God and each other, which we do by growing spiritually, gathering together, and giving back. We believe that your time with us will be meaningful and engaging – and that you’ll have a good time, too! This is a church where you can be yourself with other people who are on a similar journey.

Project Rescue

If you can make the time to join us on Sunday, we’ll make a donation to Project Rescue, a ministry for victims of human trafficking, on your behalf.

Newcomer's Lunch

On the first Sunday of every month we host a Newcomer’s Lunch immediately after the service. One of our pastors will be there with some of the other leaders. It would be great if you could stop by (nothing formal – just a time to build new relationships and have fun).
