Our story begins with an uplifting visit to the Dream Center in Los Angeles, where Dave and Joyce Meyer saw firsthand the restorative influence the Los Angeles Dream Center had on the crime-ridden, impoverished community surrounding it.
Dave and Joyce were moved by God to bring the outreach efforts of the Los Angeles Dream Center to the hurting people in their own city of St. Louis. With the help of David and Shelly Meyer and a handful of committed volunteers, they planted the St. Louis Dream Center right in the heart of North St. Louis, an inner-city area that was known for high crime, drugs, and gang activity.
Our first outreach, Adopt-A-Block, began as volunteers hit the streets of North St. Louis each Saturday ready with rakes, lawnmowers, trash bags, and gifts. They cleaned up the neighborhood and served the people. But most importantly, they built lasting relationships with their neighbors.
On Sunday, October 28, 2000, we held our first official church service. More than 300 people attended that first service, and we’ve been growing ever since!
Today, the St. Louis Dream Center is a thriving, multi-cultural, urban church of over 700 people changing the face of the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Every week we reach out to thousands of people through our Street Ministry, Adopt-A-Block, Nursing Home Ministry, KidzJam, and more. We invite you to join us and see firsthand the wonderful work God is doing in the St. Louis community.
Our mission is to ensure you have the opportunity to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Your Purpose and ultimately Make A Difference.
Our Statement of Faith
The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems. – see 2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:20–21
There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. – see John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5–7
God is Love, and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed, or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. – see Psalm 68:5–6; 1 John 4:16
Man is created in God’s image but separated from Him by sin. Therefore, without Jesus, we cannot have a relationship with God. – see Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5
We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation – God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do; it is only available through God’s unearned favor (or grace). By admitting we have sinned; by believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and by accepting Christ as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. – see Ephesians 2:8–9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24
We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. – see Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13–17
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. The Holy Spirit helps empower believers to develop the character of Christ and to live every day in God’s will. – see Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4
God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the Church) and are proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. – see 1 Corinthians 12:4–11; 1 Peter 4:10
Sanctification is the ongoing process of allowing God’s character to be developed in us. – see Romans 6:19; Galatians 5:22–25
Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Divine healing includes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual restoration. – see Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1
The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no onebe separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to atone for our sins. – see Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12–15; John 3:16–18
Jesus will return, and those who have accepted him as Lord will spend eternity with Him. – see Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13–17; Hebrews 9:28
