“ The love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: one has died for all... that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised. ”

Values

What gospel-driven culture will we seek to create as a church community?

icon-graph.png

Jesus Centered

Everything we do flows from Jesus and His message. No one is more misconstrued in our culture that Jesus. Our Jesus is oftentimes far too safe and comfortable, but we believe that knowing and embodying the real Jesus is powerful- He came that the world could see God's reckless love for us!

Live as Family

In a place like LA, experiencing family is fleeting. Yet God has invited us into His family and connected us to a collection of people tied together by Jesus. We are counter-cultural in both our care for one another and our commitment to be present with one another through thick and thin.

Embrace Diversity

As the people of God in a city like Los Angeles, we should be a diverse community: no single ethnicity, generation, political party, or socioeconomic standing defines us or what we do.

We need those who are different than us to see, enjoy, and reflect the beauty of our diverse God together!

Seek Holistic Health

Since Jesus cared for human beings holistically- feeding the hungry, healing the sick, freeing the bound, speaking truth to systems of power, and bringing hope to the hopeless- we too must step into the fray to serve the complex needs of our communities.

Build Toward Movement

Jesus invites us to participate with Him through intentional efforts to equip disciples, multiply communities, plant gospel-centered churches, and celebrate sending disciples into the next chapter God's Spirit has for them.

Community

If you've caught the vision to be a part of the church planting community, let's connect.

 
One of the key factors in the success of a church plant is external financial support. Such funding will free us to disciple and equip the church toward sustainability over the first 3 years. We're building a team of 200 supporters at $10+ a month. Can you join us?

Partnership

Financial partnership frees us to lead and equip this new church community toward sustainability.

 
"Unless the Lord builds the house, the laborers build in vain." Psalm 127 Church planting done the right way is dependent upon God for the miraculous: for people to grow bold in their faith, for others to turn and follow Jesus, and for all to mature in Christ. We refuse to move forward without at least 500 partners praying with the church.
