JOY Church, Fountain Hills

Who We Are

We are a Bible-based, Christ-centered church growing alive, deep and bold in the love and knowledge of Jesus. We hold firm that the Bible is God’s Word.  We believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation and that we are saved by His grace through faith.  As part of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC), we are grounded in biblical and Lutheran doctrine that is shared with grace and love.

Worshiping through Word and Sacrament


We are part of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC). The AFLC was organized in 1962 by 40-50 congregations of the former Lutheran Free Church (LFC). It’s a fellowship of independent congregations dedicated working together in the service of God’s Kingdom. It and has grown to become a larger Lutheran church body in the United States with over 270 member congregations. Click here to visit the AFLC’s website.
