God’s heart is to reconcile all creation to himself through his son Jesus Christ. When we put our trust in Jesus, we are adopted into his church and his mission becomes our mission: to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we pursue this mission every day in our city, across cultures, and around the globe.


“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:8

We love LA! We recognize both its beauty and its brokenness, and we pursue its spiritual, relational, and cultural renewal every day in our homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces. Local Engagement seeks to understand our city, stir our hearts with compassion for it, and equip us to display the gospel—by evangelism, service, care, and friendship—throughout Los Angeles, in whatever context God has placed us.

The Life Cycle of Renewal: Beloved

We are the beloved of God. We are created in his image, fully loved and fully accepted. Before we knew Christ, he called us beloved and drew us to him. This is how we view and engage with the lost in this city: with the understanding that every single person is the “imago Dei” (image of God), having innate dignity and value.
