The Church in San Juan Capistrano isnâ€™t our name â€“ itâ€™s our description. As such, itâ€™s an inclusive title, not an exclusive one. We gather together simply as believers of the Lord in this city to experience Christ for the building up of His Body, the Church. To reach this goal, we gather frequently to study the Bible, foster a life in Christ, establish our children and young people in the faith, serve mankind with the gospel, and encourage one anotherâ€™s God-given ministry in the Body of Christ.
We receive as our brothers and sisters all who believe in Jesus Christ and we welcome all guests and visitors to come share this life with us today.
We hold the faith thatÂ is common to all believers. â€“ Titus 1.4; Jude 3
The Bible is the complete divine revelation inspired word by word by God through the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16).
THE TRIUNE GOD
God is uniquely one, yet a Trinityâ€”the Father, the Son, and the Spirit (1 Timothy 2:5; Matthew 28:19).
The Son of God, even God Himself, was incarnated to be a man by the name of Jesus Christ (John 1:1, 14).
Christ died on the cross for our sins, shedding His blood for our redemption (1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7).
Christ resurrected from among the dead on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:4).
Christ ascended to the right hand of God to be Lord of all (Acts 1:9; 2:33, 36).
Whenever any person repents to God and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ, he or she is regenerated (born again) and becomes a living member of the one Body of Christ (Acts 20:21; John 3:3; Ephesians 1:22-23; Romans 12:5).
Christ is coming again to receive His believers to Himself (1 Thessalonians 2:19).
The church began meeting in the homes in 1992 with a focus on enjoying Christ in His word.
We have continued to grow, expanding to rented rooms at the YMCA, an elementary school, and eventually to this location in 2009 for our larger meetings.
However, our homes remain a central part of our daily “church life” for family times, small groups, etc.
And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and announcing the gospel of Jesus as the Christ. – Acts 5:42
Not abandoning our own assembling together, as the custom with some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more as you see the day drawing near. -Heb 10:25
