Perimeter's Vision

To make and deploy mature and equipped followers of Christ for the sake of

Family, Community, and Global transformation

 

Why are we called "Perimeter" Church?

Perimeter began with a desire to see God do an unusual work in the city of Atlanta, and see the entire city brought into an encounter with the Kingdom of God through a network of churches surrounding the city with the Gospel.
 
Perimeter Church is blessed to call a 110-acre property in Johns Creek our home. The purpose of the buildings and grounds is to facilitate worship of our God and ministry to His people.  Our campus is open and serving the community almost every day of the year and is used for much more than weekend worship. Please feel free to come explore and be a part of what God is doing here.

 




Our facility is more than a building.

It's a home to our congregation and a welcome spot for our community. It’s a place for believers to worship and gain equipping in their faith. It's a safe place for those exploring their faith to come and be around God's Word and God's people.



Home

Although Perimeter has been blessed with amazing facilities, the heart of our church has never been about buildings or beautiful grounds. We view the church as a home-away-from-home for so many in our church and community. We created our Atrium entrance and Atrium Café as a “Welcome Spot” to the community, open and inviting to everyone, all the time.
