About Our ChurchOur History
It all started with the Lord planting a dream in Pastor Dick Drumeller to raise up a passionate worshiping church in the Montgomery County area where it seemed to be spiritually dry. Founded in 1995, Crystalbrook began meeting in the old schoolhouse found in Liberty, KS.
From its inception, Crystalbrook’s core values have been a heart of worship and deep dedication to Jesus. God began to bless this community of believers as they strove to see Montgomery County changed for the cause of Christ. Shortly after founding Crystalbrook, Pastor Dick became concerned and burdened with the thought of being just “another good church” which didn’t offer true spiritual help or renewal. This caused him to seek the Lord on how Crystalbrook could be a church that really made a true difference. Through connections made half way around the world, Pastor Dick heard of a small town church in Smithton, MO (to what is now called World Revival Church located in Kansas City, MO) where God was moving mightily in revival through the ministry of Steve Grey. Upon his first visit he was immediately struck with deep conviction as to the passion and dedication he saw in the congregation of believers there. From this and ensuing visits, Pastor Dick found a new call and passion to reach southeast Kansas. The following years were filled with fiery sermons, passionate worship, instant healing’s, and dramatic conversions. Some would comment to Pastor Dick “I can’t believe its you preaching so intensely!” A trait found in Pastor Dick’s sermons to this day.
In 1998, Crystalbrook purchased the former Catholic Church building in Liberty as the church began to grow and experience deep moves of God that would leave spectators speechless and teary eyed. This movement was not only among adults but had a strong impact on the children and youth as well. In 1999, Crystalbrook acquired the “Lonesome Buzzard Saloon” located in Liberty, and transformed it into a fully functional youth center. God began to move upon the hearts of these youth as they began meeting every Thursday, seeing God add to their numbers weekly. Many times they would be so enveloped in God’s interaction, they simply would not want to leave. This was all intensified with the acquaintance of Mark Marshall and his traveling group of youth ministers. These series of meetings caused many to experience a new freedom which has changed the lives of many that attended to this day. Worship was an vital part of these moves of God as everyone would call out to the Lord with one voice. These years of transformation are what shaped Crystalbrook as it is today.
Crystalbrook has recently finished construction on the new fully equipped facility in Independence, KS. Currently residing at 15th and Chestnut, God has continued to show his favor on this community as they continue to strive for His glory to be revealed in Montgomery County. God is forming a diverse team of seasoned workers whose goal is to see Montgomery County helped and changed through the transforming work of our Lord. God has also formed a key connection with Sandy Earle whose outreach and missions experience bring a vital part to what Crystalbrook is today. Things have never looked better for Crystalbrook as God is bringing old and new faces together to reveal His glory. There is much anticipation in the air as we pursue God’s story, revealed through this body of believers. New Here?Give

Our Beliefs & Values
Statement of Faith
The Apostles Creed
We believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
God the Father
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that we are to spread the Word of God through discipleship. To Go make disciples which is the Great Commission.
We believe that every human being has direct relations with God, and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other.
We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denominational organization. Such an organization, whether it is the Conference or a district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary independent basis.
The Last Things
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal bliss of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked
