Artesia Community Church is about a group of people who are…
Skillfully created in the image of God to enjoy an intimate relationship with Him, participating in life to the max, to the full…abundant life!
Recognizing that sin has served as a barrier between us and a holy God and the fullness of that life…
Elated by the fact that Jesus paid the debt our sin had run up against us by dying for us on the cross at Calvary!
Rebounding to the “full” life we were originally created to live, through the powerful resurrection of Jesus, God’s Son!
And now, set free to live life on a new level as we rise through the ascended Christ into the heavenly realms!
Loving others, unconditionally, regardless of our differences, writing a new “Kingdom” culture into our rich heritage.
Compassionate for the lost and lonely, the discarded and discouraged, through hearts molded and fashioned after the heart of our God!
We are “sent ones!” Sent with an infectious message of hope for new life in Christ for those who believe!
Empowered by the Holy Spirit to live lives that bring glory to our God, and to be His witnesses!
Engaged in prayer, humbled by His Presence, and yet boldly coming before Him in intercession for others!
Captivated, consumed, and fully connected to the realities of God’s Kingdom, fully believing, fully trusting, fully adoring and recognizing these truths, until those realities define us…who we are!
To borrow a phrase from the Apostle Paul…
“Not that (we) have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but (we) press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of (us)…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, (we) press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called (us) heavenward in Christ Jesus! (Philippians 3:12-14 NIV)
