Who We Are

Storyline is a community of warm, genuine and imperfect people who are committed to Jesus and one another. We believe the life and work of Jesus is life-changing and seek to be a community where we help people connect the story of Jesus to their own stories as well as the story of our city.

Our Beliefs

The Bible.

God, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote the Bible through men and without error. It is fully authoritative, clear, sufficient, and necessary in all matters of life for followers of Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

The Trinity.

God exists eternally as one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1-2)

Jesus.

Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man. As the Son of God, Jesus left his rightful place in heaven to become a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven to redeem sinful people. (Colossians 1:13-22)

Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent who applies salvation to sinful people, bringing them new life, living within them, sanctifying them, empowering them to serve others, and sealing them until the day of Christ’s return. (John 14:16-26)

Humanity.

God creates all humanity in His image as uniquely male and female. Because humanity is created in the image of God, every human life is sacred, full of dignity, and significant. (Genesis 1-3)

Salvation.

All humanity is sinful and in need of salvation, which is available through faith and belief in the life and work of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23-25)

Baptism.

Baptism is an outward expression of a new inward reality that a person has been buried with Jesus in his death and raised to new life with him in his resurrection. (Romans 6:3-5)

The Church.

The church is both universal and local. It is comprised of individuals who have committed their lives to following Jesus. (Acts 2:42)

Eternity.

Jesus will one day return to earth to judge humanity and reign with his saints forever. (Matthew 25:46)

Our Mission

"Reach people with the gospel, disciple them into a relationship with Jesus, and multiply them throughout the world."

Our Values

A playground

We initiate relationships with all people

Like God did for us, Storyline is a church that takes the first step in initiating relationships with all people to love and serve and share the goodness of the gospel with others.

Street Left Houses

We Grow in Maturity Together

As image bearers of God Himself, we are incurably communal. We are created for relationships, and it is through relationships that we grow in maturity. For this reason, Storyline is a church that grows in maturity together.

We Multiply to Multiply

Multiplication is a norm at Storyline. We make disciples who make disciples who plant churches. In essence, we multiply to multiply at Storyline.

We Create Moments That Matter

Every person has a story, and every story is a collection of moments. We make the moments we get with people count. Whether it’s the community events we host in the city, the thought and preparation that goes into our services, or even the intentional conversations in the church lobby, we create moments that matter with people at Storyline.

Our Leadership

Josh and Cherish Wilson and Family

Josh & Cherish Wilson

Josh and Cherish Wilson have been married 12 years and have three boys, Seth, Sutton, and Sawyer, with their fourth boy due in September. They love spending time with others, cheering on their Cardinals, and exploring St. Louis with their boys. Josh is a graduate of Southern Seminary and served as a staff pastor for 8 years at Sojourn Church in Louisville, KY before sensing a call to plant Storyline Church in St. Louis, MO. Josh and Cherish are thrilled to plant deep roots in St. Louis and to share their lives and faith with their neighbors in order to see the gospel transform their city.
The Meyer's family

Andy & Sarah Meyers

Andy and Sarah Meyers have been married 9 years and have two kids, Olive and Russell. They enjoy having people over for a meal, getting outdoors on a hike, and the simple joy of a family movie night with pizza and popcorn. Andy has served and led within the church non-vocationally for well over a decade, most recently at Sojourn Church in Louisville, KY. He has led within music, small groups, and discipleship, while also serving as a board member at another non-profit. Together, they sensed the Lord guiding them to help plant Storyline Church alongside Josh and Cherish in late-2019. Andy and Sarah know the Lord is already moving in the hearts of people in St. Louis, and their prayer is that they remain steadfast in joining in that work.

Our Name

Stories have a way of discipling us. Stories possess the power to capture our imaginations and then instruct us in how to live, relate, and behave in this life. The way we perceive success, define love, or determine right from wrong is largely influenced by the narratives competing for our devotion. Every ad, Hollywood film, teen novel, political campaign, and nuanced lyric is depicting a way to the good life. In essence, the stories of our society attempt to indoctrinate us. With this in mind, we ought to be mindful of the stories that shape and define our lives.

We landed on the name Storyline Church because we believe there is one story that leads to the good life, and it is the very story that the church has gathered around for centuries – the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The gospel is God’s message about Jesus, the Son of God, who lived, died, and rose again on man’s behalf to satisfy God’s judgment of sins. The gospel is our center at Storyline.

It shapes both the way we live and the way we gather. So it is our mission to reach people with the gospel, disciple them into a relationship with Jesus, and multiply them throughout the world.
