About Us

Who We Are

For over 20 years, Candlewood Church Omaha, a non-denominational, Bible-based, Christian church, has been fulfilling its mission of loving God and others, building strong families, helping people realize their potential, caring for our community, and communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After starting with just a couple of families that moved to Omaha with a dream of changing the world, Candlewood Church is now made up of over 400 people.

Candlewood Church has a vibrant ministry on the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) campus. We’ve counted over 400 salvations and 500 baptisms. With God’s help, we have made a tremendous impact in our communities and around the world by dedicating time to evangelism, community service, and missions.

We believe God wants to do more.

Where We’re Going

Our goal has always been to reach the entire world with the Gospel, and we intend to continue working towards that goal by reaching one person at a time. When one person is reached, and comes to understand and believe in the love and power of Jesus Christ, their entire lives are completely changed. We then equip that person to reach and equip others, who will reach and equip others. Following this pattern, we believe that God will help us to meet our goal!

We are also trusting that God will use Building Together to help us get closer to meeting our goal. Building Together is an initiative that God used to help Candlewood purchase permanent facilities in Omaha. We believe this will help us to strengthen and expand our ministries and impact, which will enable more church plants in the Omaha and surrounding areas, as well as across the globe.
