Our Beliefs

God

Gen 1:1; Jn 1:1-4; Acts 17:24-27; 1 Jn. 4:8-9,16

The Loft believes in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. God is the Creator of the universe. God is love, and He loves His creation unconditionally. God desires more than anything that everyone would be in relationship with Him and know His purpose for their lives. 

The Bible

Ps. 119:105; Jn. 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:21; Heb. 4:12

The Bible is God's Message to us. It reveals God's character and will for our lives. It contains ancient yet relevant truth that serves as a guide for how we should live. We believe that the word of God is without error in original manuscripts.

Salvation

Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:8-10; Jn. 14:6; Rom. 3:22-26

God loves the world so much that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to save us. Humanity rebelled against God. We try to be the god of our own lives, and we do not love each other as God intended. Jesus died on the cross and was punished in our place, so that by believing in Him, we can be made right with God. A person's good works cannot make a person right with God. Salvation comes only by trusting in Jesus' perfect life, death, and resurrection. 

Church

Jn. 4:24; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Matt. 5:16

The purpose of the Church is to worship God in spirit and in truth, and to reach a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.

Made New

2 Cor. 5:17; 1 Thess. 4:7; Acts 1:8; Gal. 5:16; Rom. 8:11

Those who trust in Christ are made new. God calls us to a new life, to be holy in character and conduct, and He empowers us to live transformed lives through the Holy Spirit. 

Faith Roots

The Loft is part of The Wesleyan Church, which is one of many great denominations doing incredible work. The Wesleyan Church has roots in the abolitionist movement and the fight for women's suffrage. 

Greg & Bailie Dabb

LEAD PASTOR

Pastor Greg has been serving in ministry for nearly 15 years, up and down the east coast and the Caribbean. Born and raised on the rural edge of Buffalo, NY, he has a love for all things farming/Creation care and a passion for God’s church. He and his wife Bailie met while he was serving at a church in Virginia, had two beautiful boys, and dreamed of ways to merge their passions for ministry and farming, until eventually making their way to Hillsborough, where the Lord had so faithfully cultivated their visions into reality. God is moving in Somerset County and Pastor Greg is thrilled to be a part of His great work!

Our Story

In August of 2000, Christian Community Chapel (CCC) was born out of a small group meeting with Pastor Steve and Pam Nash and seven other couples. CCC had an unorthodox beginning and moved between the Somerset Marriott, Ramada Inn, and Quality Inn for the first few months. One year later, CCC purchased Brookhaven Farm in Hillsborough and constructed a beautiful sanctuary in an ideal location right on Route 206. This served as our home for over a decade.

​In 2010, CCC saw the need for a support network and voted to join the Wesleyan Church denomination. Upon joining we became "one of the most diverse Wesleyan churches in North America." In 2015, CCC made the strategic decision to relocate in order to maximize ministry effectiveness. We sold the property on Route 206 to another wonderful church, and purchased Ram Hill Farm, our current home on 121 South Branch Road.

Today, we are at an exciting time in our church's history! We are relaunching as The Loft Wesleyan Church (The Loft) and are undertaking an incredible renovation project, converting a historic barn into a church sanctuary. The Loft is excited to fulfill its God-given vision to transform Hillsborough and the world with the love of Jesus Christ!
