King's Church is a growing family rooted in Jesus, sharing God's love with our neighbors and the world.
The people of King’s Church are a family. We are a family made up of broken, messy and imperfect people because that’s exactly who Jesus loves. We accept one another as we are and don’t have to perform or pretend to belong. We’re also a family that’s not afraid to be real, to be honest about our struggles and our disappointments. We’re not afraid to believe in truth while loving those who disagree with us. And we’re not afraid to hope; hope that people really can change and find purpose for their lives, hope that marriages and families can thrive, and that the most vulnerable and hurting can receive justice and healing.
King’s Church makes new and maturing disciples of Jesus. All of our ministries define success by this question: “Are people becoming more like Christ?” We believe discipleship happens most effectively in large and small groups where young and old develop strong spiritual bonds. Within this family environment, disciples engage with the Word of God, speak the Gospel to one another and learn to abide with Jesus on a daily basis. These relationships are life transforming and unleash our people to boldly take risks, sharing God’s love in tangible ways with our neighbors.
King’s Church builds missional partnerships with other like-minded individuals, churches and organizations that are committed to the advancement of God’s kingdom in Long Beach, but also the world. We gravitate towards opportunities to serve the most vulnerable and hurting in our communities. We also believe new church plants are an effective way to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus.
The Gospel Changes Everything
The Gospel shapes how we view God, his Word, ourselves, and the world. The Gospel motivates our ministry and compels us to respond to God's love with love.
It's scary to expose our weaknesses but doing so is necessary to develop deep relationships with others. As we learn more about how much God loves us, we find the courage to be known by others.
We want our children, youth, and adults in all life stages to develop strong bonds with one another. We are family and strive to reflect that in all our ministries.
Truth in Love
We believe in sharing the truth of God's Word without compromise while always challenging ourselves to do so in a loving and winsome way.
Salt and Light
We want to be engaged and present in our culture, not hiding or blending in with the values of our society. We hope people will notice something different about us that is attractive and inviting.
