About Us

We are a family of Christians from many different backgrounds, denominations, cultures, and religious experiences. We are committed to following God's direction for our church. We truly love God and love worshiping Him together. Our song service is primarily contemporary and Charismatic; Gifts of the Spirit are encouraged; sermons are Biblical, spiritual and fresh; and we refer to our weekly Communion service as "Liturgy with Life."

We are also evangelical. We invite others to know the Lord Jesus Christ, to have His presence in their lives, and to join us at Mercy Fellowship as God leads.

We invite you to come to join us in fellowship at any of our worship services or meetings. Our desire in each meeting is to come into God's mighty and incredible Presence. He has promised, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13). We pray that you will experience Him as you fellowship with us, along with a loving, family atmosphere.

The Rev. Bill Foss


Bill was 32 years old when he came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the testimony of a professional football player and intense reading of the Gospel of John. He experienced the reality of being called out of darkness and into God's marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9b). His relationship with God is shown by his fervent love of the Scriptures, which he dearly embraces and is quick to share with others. Truly, the joy of the Lord is his strength (Nehemiah 8:10b) and his testimony is, "Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me" (Psalm 54:4).

The Rev. Doug Gillis


Doug has been in ordained ministry since 1976. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Ministry and Counseling in 2000 and was ordained as a priest in 2008. He and his wife Carla have served on the foreign mission field and at different churches in the United States. Doug has also been leading praise and worship since 1974. He knows the importance of keeping a fresh intimate relationship with God and expressing the leading and presence of the Holy Spirit in all facets of ministry.
