More than a church, we are a family that believes in traditional family values that are taught in the Bible. It's our desire to help you to grow your relationship with the one that died for you, Jesus Christ.

We are so thankful you have taken the time to check out our website and learn a little more about who we are!

The Truth Church had its beginnings as a satellite campus of New Life Pentecostal Church in Olathe in 2014 when Pastor Merriman and his family started teaching Bible studies at the Groundhouse coffee shop in Gardner, KS.  Since then, we had services in a rented facility in Gardner for over a year. In the fall of 2016, God opened the door for us to move into our current facility located in the heart of beautiful downtown Edgerton!

At the Truth Church it is our mission to bring hope into this world through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our teaching is based solely on the scriptures and comes straight from the Bible. Jesus said that “thy word is truth” therefore, it is our sole authority in all things. This is how we came to call ourselves The Truth Church. We want to be known for our adherence to the Bible.

Besides this, we are a family friendly church where everyone is welcome! Every Sunday we have Kids Church in the sanctuary where the adults and children meet together, play games, sing songs and we have a blast learning about the Bible! And who knows, you just might end up in the “blessed seat”! We sing songs of worship and conclude every service with a message from Pastor Merriman.

In addition to our Sunday service, we have regular Bible studies on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm. This is a great opportunity for you to come and learn more about the Bible and to schedule your own personal Bible study with Pastor Merriman!

Well, hopefully you know a little more about us, and we hope you give us the pleasure of joining us for service so we can learn more about you!



We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible Word of God (II Timothy 3:16). The Bible is the only God-given authority which man possesses; therefore, all doctrine, faith, hope, and all instruction for the church must be based upon the Bible. Read more...


There is one indivisible Spirit of God that became manifest in fleshly form. (1 Timothy 3:16) As scripture declares, Jesus literally is “God with us”! (Mathew 1:23)


Baptism in Jesus’ name is for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38). Baptism is a necessary part of salvation. (Mark 16:16)


Jesus said you must be “born of the Spirit” in order to enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:5). He also said if you believe you should also receive the Holy Ghost. (John 7:39)


A lifestyle of holiness is commanded in scripture. God said to be holy because He is holy. (Hebrews 12:14; Titus 2:11-12; I Peter 1:15-19, 2:21-23).



Pastor Andrew Merriman is the founding Pastor of The Truth Church of Edgerton, Kansas. He was raised in a small Southern Illinois town. He joined the Air Force in 1998 and married his sweetheart, Angela. Their journeys took them to Mississippi, Alaska, and North Dakota. Pastor Merriman also served 1 tour overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004.

After serving 7 years on active duty, Pastor Merriman returned home to finish his bachelor’s degree at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. From there, the Merriman family relocated to Kansas City where they found a church home at New Life Pentecostal Church in Olathe, KS.  Under the direction and leadership of his pastor, Bishop Gregory Riggen, his own ministry grew tremendously as he fulfilled various roles serving on the local ministry staff and holding positions as Corporate Secretary, Sunday School Director, and Youth Minister.

In the summer of 2013, God began dealing with Pastor Merriman about starting a church in the city of Gardner and the surrounding area. After much prayer and fasting, the Truth Church was born in April 2014!



The Bible teaches there is a time for everything. We want to share with you a little bit of time gone by in the galleries bellow.
