About us

Our mission and our values demonstrate who we are and flow from what we believe.

Our Mission

We Love Our City

We strive to plant deep roots in our city of Santa Ana, and bless our neighbors through the ministry of the gospel for generations to come.

We Love What Jesus Has Done

We are a church that glorifies God as we celebrate his grace and share in the joy of Jesus through making and maturing disciples, serving our community, raising up leaders, participating in church planting, and sending out missionaries.

We Love Our Neighbors

By God’s grace, it’s our aim that our Santa Ana neighbors would come to know and love Jesus and enter into his joy. And not only this, but that more and more Californians would come to know the joy of Jesus.

Who We Are

We’re a bunch of ordinary people who have been filled with the extraordinary joy of Jesus. God has welcomed us all in Christ, so we’re excited to welcome all languages and cultures (all types of people) to join our community and share in our joy!  Discover more about our church family, as well as our passion for Santa Ana.

Our Values

The core values of any organization reflect who they are and what they believe

Gospel-Centered

We believe that the gospel—the good news of God’s saving activity in Jesus Christ—is the pinnacle of His redemptive acts, the center of the Bible’s story, and the essential message for our faith, life, and witness. We are committed to preaching the gospel, singing the gospel, praying the gospel, and building our church upon the gospel.

Reformed

The Bible presents the all-glorious, triune God as the source and end of all things, sovereignly working all things according to His will. At the center of God’s purposes in the world is the exaltation of His glory through the redemption of sinners. To this end, we believe that God sovereignly chooses men and women to be saved in order to display His immeasurable grace and glory.

Continuationist

We believe the Holy Spirit desires to continually fill each believer with increased power for Christian life and witness, including the giving of His supernatural gifts for the building up of the church and for various works of ministry in the world. We are eager to pursue God’s active presence in all its breadth, that Christ may be magnified in our lives, in the church, and among the nations.

Complementarian

We believe it was God’s glorious plan to create men and women in His image, giving them equal dignity and value in His sight, while appointing differing and complementary roles for them within the home and the church.

Elder-Governed

Jesus is the leader of his Church and he has called, qualified, and gifted elders (or pastors) to imitate Him in the task of caring, guiding, teaching, and serving His people.

Missional

Our gospel-centrality entails not only treasuring the gospel personally but sharing it passionately. The risen Christ commissioned His church to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18–20). 

Partnerships

A local church needs other local churches to carry out the mission which Christ has entrusted to all churches. We are part of Sovereign Grace Churches. Our union with our family of churches helps us preserve doctrinal purity, provides support in difficult circumstances, and equips us to participate in the Church’s mission to bring the gospel to all nations.
