About Us

Vertical Church began in Spring 2010 when Pastor Luke & Jensine Ahrens and group of believers began praying about starting a new church in Columbus.  Before moving to Central Ohio, Pastor Luke served on staff at Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago. Vertical Church Columbus launched their first service on October 10, 2010 as member of Harvest Bible Fellowship, a church planting organization.

The Gospel//Good News

All other religions Tell us We have to Reach god. But the God of the Bible loved us enough to come Down to us.

God created the world perfectly. He created the heavens and the earth and all that fills it just as He intended. But mankind chose to rebel against their loving God, and rejected all that He taught them.

That is the state our world is in. Broken. Filled with violence, sickness, deception, sin. Separated from the perfect and holy God who created us with no hope of returning by anything we could ever accomplish. Sentenced to death for our wrong doing.

But God.

But God wanted us to know him. God acted in his lovingkindness and sent his Son Jesus to live the perfect life that we could never live and die the death that we should have died. Just three days later, Jesus rose from the dead! For those who believe, Jesus has paid our sin-debt. God made a way for us to know him through his only begotten son.

 “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
