Most people in the world have no experience of deep and abiding joy.
Even though it is something we all desperately long for, the assurance that true happiness can be known — fully and forever — is a hope that billions of people live every day without. This is a tragedy.
We aim to help people everywhere embrace a profound truth that changes everything about life and eternity: You were created for something greater than yourself. You were formed for something awesome and magnificent. You were made to know glory — God’s glory and the deepest longings of the human heart can be fully satisfied by pursuing that glory. In fact, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
Core Values and Beliefs
We value diversity both generationally and culturally. God has placed us in a strategic location where the world has come to us. Within 12 miles of our church live 2 million people from every corner of the world. Our goal is to reach this diverse cultural community and to continue reflecting this diversity in our church body.
Worship: In our worship, we recognize who God is, who we are before Him, and what is on His heart. Because lives are transformed through the application of God’s Word, we value biblical teaching in our times of worship.
Family: Fulfilling the vision of the founders, we support families through biblically-based ministries. We seek to partner with parents in their children’s spiritual upbringing. Our goal is for all children, teens, and adults to grow in their relationship to Christ.
Next Generation: We seek to reach the next generation with the love of Christ and with God’s Word. We want to connect them to the transforming grace of God and a caring Christian community. We strive to help them discover and deploy their gifts, talents, and abilities for Christ’s service.
Outreach: Christ’s mission is our mission: to reach the world with His Gospel. We respond to His calling by going, praying, and sacrificially supporting Christ’s work locally and worldwide. Increased participation in short-term missions is sharpening our focus on a world that desperately needs Jesus.
Albert Young Lee
I was born and raised in Torrance, CA. Torrance boasts of the best weather in all of California which means quite possibly the best weather in the world. I want to disrupt that comfort with the gospel so that Torrance can experience the true joy and peace and true comfort that only Christ can give.
I want to create a church where the people of Torrance can experience a culture that is for lack of a better term, real; where they can get plugged into a people with real love, real friends, real care; where they can meet the Real God; where the cross is preached unapologetically; where new believers and old believers can learn from each other. I want to plant a church that is not mine, but His.
