About God's House

Our Story

Marion was the first God's House location started by Founding Pastors Ryan and Katara McCarty in 2000 in downtown Marion, Indiana. Since that time, God's House has grown to be a vibrant culture of faith, compassion, and grace as we reach out across the street and around the world. Currently led by Pastors Dave and Ronda Toevs, we now have locations in Marion, Indiana, and in Zambia, Africa.

It is our passion to see God's best happen in your life. Whether you are new to church or grew up being a part of it, you will be greeted the moment you come in. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Our Mission

God's House exists to spur the message of the hope found in Jesus in our city and world through making disciples.

Our Vision

Making uncommon love common.  "This is how we’ve come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves." - 1 John 3:16

Our Core Values

At God's House, we have identified five distinct core values that are guiding principles as to who we are and what makes us unique. 

1. No need to knock

We provide an environment that cultivates a feeling of belonging.

2. We all win

We share grace, joy, hope and healing as we journey together.

3. Do more than we should

We give generously of ourselves through service, discipleship and doing the unexpected.

4. Keep it spicy

We challenge norms, celebrate diversity, and find uniqueness in others.

5. Sweat the small stuff

We believe doing little things with excellence makes a big difference in living a life that is reflective of God's love.

  • Historical Registry

    God's House's sanctuary, the former First Presbyterian Church, is now on the National Historical Registry. The Gothic Revival construction is needing at least $500,000 worth of work.  If you are a lover of beautiful architecture, believe in our mission, and would like to donate to help us restore this grand building, please click on the donate button above and earmark it for the building fund.  We want God's House to bring God's Light and Hope to 6th and Gallatin well after we hand off this church to the next generation and keep building a church our kids can keep building!
