Worshiping God | Following Jesus | Led by the Holy Spirit
The Christian Church in her purest form was created to fulfill the great commission and the great commandment. We are committed to living out our legacy and purpose as a part of THE Church in West Los Angeles. Imperfect as we are, at every opportunity we strive to Love God, Love the people made in His Image, and to make disciples of all nations bearing witness to the good news of Jesus.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
God is the creator of the universe, and has eternally existed in three parts, the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
(Gen. 1:1, 26, 27 & 1 Peter 1:2 & Psalms. 90:2.)
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God. He lived a perfect, sinless life on earth. He offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind when he died upon the cross. He was buried in a tomb for three days and then to demonstrate his power over sin and death he arose from the dead. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.
(Matthew 1:22-23, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, John 14:6, John 3:16.)
The Bible is the inspired word of God. It was written by men under supernatural guidance. They were inspired by God and therefore the bible exists today without error.
(2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119:105, Prov. 30:5.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He lives in every Christ Follower from the moment of Salvation. He gives us the ability to live in a way that we could never live on our own.
(John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, Col. 1:27.
Every person has priceless value and worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The great news is that the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord.
(Romans 3:23, John 3:16.
We believe that the blood of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross provide the sole basis for our forgiveness of sins. That those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him.
(Romans 10:9, Romans 6:23, Acts 2:38, Ephesians. 2:8-9, Galatians 3:26.
The Church is the body of Christ on earth. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be salt and light. The Church exists to save the lost and edify the saved.
(Ephesians 4:1-16, Matthew 5:14.)
Man was originally created to live forever. And all mankind will exist either separated from God or in the very presence of God. Our eternal destiny is determined by our decision on earth to accept or reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We further believe that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth to reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.
(Luke 12:5, John 14:2-6, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.)
