We exist to help people connect to God, discover their purpose, live in community, and love our city.

Our Pastors - TJ & Melissa Poisl

As lead pastors, our hearts are to see our community forever impacted by the love and life of Jesus. We believe that experiencing a life-giving relationship with Jesus changes everything and offers hope and joy like never before. Our heart is not only to connect people to Jesus, but to help them discover their God-given purposes within community.

You were created on purpose and with purpose. The church simply can’t exist without each of us stepping into God’s plans and purposes for our lives. We would love to see what God wants to do through you at Soul Revival Church!

Our Family - #poislsquad

We have been happily married for 14 years, have three awesome boys, and consider ourselves a family on mission for Jesus to see God’s kingdom here in Racine as it is in Heaven. It’s our prayer that God would make us a light in the darkness and equip us to always point others to the life-saving hope of knowing and following Jesus. We believe in the goodness and faithfulness of God and the Church that He is at work building to reach a world in need of Jesus. God is at work in our city and its our desire to be a part of all that He is doing. We love Jesus and desire to love people like Jesus does.


Jesus Changes Everything

A relationship with Jesus changes everything. Jesus informs the way that we live, love, lead and serve others. He is the reason for everything that we do. Knowing the hope, joy and purpose we find in Jesus, we can’t help but share His good news with the world around us!

Better Together

Life is best lived in Jesus centered community. We are stronger and better together. It doesn’t matter our age, background or ethnicity, we are a unified community with a common bond through Jesus.

Everybody Always

People are our heart. Jesus’ greatest commandments were to love God and love people. Our heart is to meet people right where they’re at. They don’t have to believe to belong, but our love for them will be the conduit to being saved by Jesus.

Lead from Last

Servant Leadership: It’s not what we do, it’s who we are. We believe that Jesus came, not to be served but to serve. Every leader is first and foremost called to serve. No job is too small, and no one is above servanthood. If Jesus modeled loving servanthood and selflessness, then we seek to do the same. Every person has a role to play, and every contribution is equally important, from the parking lot to the stage! Church simply cannot exist without every person serving in their gifting.

Made for More

Every person is created on purpose with purpose. And that purpose is discovered through a relationship with Jesus.

Hustle with Heart

Anything we do, we do with everything we’ve got! Excellence is our hope, but we measure our hustle. We want to honor God and the things He has set before us by working to the best of our abilities, and not holding anything back. With passion and purpose, our best will be a blessing!

Be the Blessing

Generosity is our privilege. We desire to have a spirit of generosity where we use our time, talent and resources to serve others, and glorify God. We have an attitude of “get to”, not of “have to”. God doesn’t need our stuff, but he desires our hearts.

Walk in Worship

Worship is the way that we bring glory to God. We do this through the way that we live, love, lead and serve. It’s not something we do with part of our life, but with all of our live's. We are worshippers!


The Scriptures

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 The scripture is Gods words written and recorded by His apostles and prophets through the power of His Holy Spirit. God's Word is the final authority for the belief and behavior of every Jesus follower.

The One True God

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed "I AM," and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).

The Trinity

The Trinity is One God in three persons. It is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each are unique but also One.

Man's Fall and Redemption

Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let us make man in our image and after our likeness." Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro. 5:12-21).

The Salvation of Man

The Bible says that no one can come to the Father except through Jesus. Romans 10:9 states that if someone confesses with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and that He is the Son of God and believes in their heart that God raised Jesus from death to life, they will be saved.

The Church

The church is not a building, but followers of Jesus coming together as one body to love God and love people. That together, we are to go into all the world to reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:5, Matthew 22:37-39, Matthew 28:18-20)


God created marriage. It is a covenant made between a man and a woman that makes them one (Gen 2: 22, 24; Matt 19: 5-6).


Water Baptism

Water baptism is an outward expression of an inward heart transformation. Baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4).


The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined to all believers "until He comes" (John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke 22:19,20; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:25).
