Neighborhood churches

We are a network of neighborhood churches…meaning we cultivate, equip and send out church communities that are between 20-70 people with the goal that these will multiply and impact their neighborhoods. We are a scattered network in the fact that each church makes up a unique calling in the Antelope Valley through their own vision and mission. We are a gathered network in that each church gathers together for shared, corporate worship on Sunday evenings and by living out their calling through Communion, Community, and Co-Mission.

For many the church is viewed as an event, a form of theology or a building, but we understand it as a family on mission together: "so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” - 1 Thessalonians 2:8. This is the vision of common life that is outlined by the Early Church in Acts 2. By planting local communities…smaller expressions of church…throughout neighborhoods in the Antelope Valley we are seeing people knit into family as they worship Jesus, eat together, discuss with each other and go on mission to our valley together.
