A new heart I will give you,
and a new spirit I will put within you;
and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone
and give you a heart of flesh.
— Ezekiel 36:26

We heal the brokenhearted. We equip believers. We release disciples.

We are dwellers in the Father’s Love, being provoked to sustain each other’s hunger. We are wounded healers who trust Jesus’ touch and are not hiding the doubts of our weak hearts. We are creative seekers, finding the anointing of the Holy Spirit in all aspects of life because His touch is hidden and manifested in mourning and in thrill. We are pioneers on our way to heaven living in a missionary community in the Los Angeles area.

charism

 

We create the culture of encounter.

Our community is open to all. Our roots and theological understanding comes from the rich theological and existential heritage of the Catholic Church. We are accountable to Bishop David G. O'Connell, Episcopal Vicar of the San Gabriel Pastoral Region of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Worship

Worship of our Creator with our life is fundamental for us. We want to develop great worship settings that will be conducive to hosting the presence of God, cultivate life changing encounters and create beautiful art expressions of life pursuing Father's love, discovering Jesus and drinking from the stream of the Spirit.

evangelization

We proclaim the risen Christ through words and deeds: preaching and the works of mercy, engaging in various forms of evangelization in the midst of post-Christian worldview as well as among unchurched baptized seekers. Our path of discipleship starts at our families, places of work, neighberhoods and parishes.

ecumenism

We operate in the spirit of 'gift exchange'. We receive from our brothers and sisters from the whole Body of Christ and we are ready to offer the gifts we have received from 2,000 years of witnessing to Christ's power. 

Life in the spirit

We expect the supernatural presence of the Holy Spirit to break through in our midst. We follow the Tradition of the New Testament Church and our great mystics as well as the wisdom of all Christians who walk in the Spirit and bring fruit.
