We are a church in Bellflower, California that follows Jesus Christ as Lord and joins God in the work he is doing in our world today. We do this by committing to Our Vision: Love God, Love Others, Change The World.
No matter what you’ve been through or where you come from, you are welcome here.
Join us for a Sunday gathering and see why God’s family is no ordinary family.

Our Family Culture and Values
OUR FAMILY CULTURE IS DEFINED BY USING THE WORD RELATIONSHIPS.
THESE 13 CORE VALUES DEFINE OUR CULTURE AS A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD & OTHERS.
