Our History

In March 2012, a small group of families, college students, and young adults began meeting in a living room on the north side of Indianapolis. From day one, the vision has been to “see the gospel of Jesus change everything” – us, our neighborhoods, Indianapolis, and, ultimately, the entire world.

In July 2012, Soma began meeting in a small church building in Midtown. In 2013, we met at a few other locations, including the Speakeasy, The Oaks Academy, and the Indianapolis Art Center. In February 2014, we purchased and moved into the Muirfield Building at 2815 E 62nd Street. In September 2016, Soma planted a second neighborhood church in downtown Indianapolis. One year later in September 2017, Soma planted a third neighborhood church in northwest Indianapolis. God has generously poured out His grace as we’ve seen lives changed, needs met, and people stirred to be a renewing presence in the city. We pray that you’ll consider joining our movement of disciples, families, and missionaries who live for the glory of God and the good of our city.

Our Name

The New Testament is filled with rich metaphors describing the countercultural community of people who have been transformed by grace. One of the most frequent designations for this community is the Greek word “soma”, which simply means “body.”

Soma Church seeks to embody the person of Jesus Christ to Indianapolis, displaying the riches of God’s grace to our great city in both word and deed. We desire to be family to one another as we love, serve, forgive, engage, pray, and pursue God’s glory and our subsequent joy in a deep community of faith.

Our Networks

Although we are an independent, autonomous church, we partner with four national networks for resources, coaching, accountability, and mission. These networks are the Southern Baptist ConventionSojourn NetworkFellowship Associates, and the Summit Network.
