"OUR CALL AS A CONGREGATION

We are called to be a community of faith, a welcome table, that celebrates the rich diversity of its membership as it serves and honors the diverse cultural and ethnic nature of Los Angeles and surrounding communities.  We are called to be deeply grounded in the Word and Witness through the power of the Holy Spirit, being a prophetic voice for  justice, healing and transformation.  We are called to manifest the love of Christ as we share our various sources of capital with the community as well as being a witness to God's reign through celebrative worship and care for one another.

Latest Bible Study and Worship.

II Corinthians 5:17-21
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,  the new creation  has come: The old has gone, the new is here!   18 All this is from God,  who reconciled us to himself through Christ  and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.  And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors,  as though God were making his appeal through us.  We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.   21 God made him who had no sin  to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Bible Study:  Psalms

Pastor Scott Arnold teaches relevant lessons for today from the Psalms. This is a sequential study, starting with Psalm 1.
Discover how the times of Israel are similar to the times we contend with today. There are overwhelming problems that David and Israel faced, the people discovered the wisdom of God and the Spirit of God helping them to worship and serve God through life's challenges and disappointments.  Pastor Scott teaches these Bible Studies on Facebook live at 11:00 am Wednesday mornings PDT.
