our mission

The Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists exists to exalt Christ by serving its diverse communities through networked and creatively engaged churches and schools.

 


our vision

Embracing Community in Christ

Vision Text 
"Speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into the one who is the head, into Christ from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body's growth in building itself up in love." -Ephesians 4:15-16

 


our core values 

Integrity With Transparency
We value and recognize the transforming power of God's word in our lives as we pursue wholeness in our character. We will not be bought or sold, because we are sold out for Christ. 

Engagement
We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don't know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we will have to be fully engaged, doing things no one is doing.

Stewardship
We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers. The church does not exist just for us; we exist for the world. We will give and manage our resources with excellence for this mission.

Unity in Diversity
We recognize that the local church is the hope of the world, and we are confident we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart.

Relationships & Team
We value relationships and are unapologetic in our love. We are committed to honoring each other's gifts, talents, and strengths united together to accomplish Christ's mission.
