A Community Church

The Community Church is the way that God is restoring the world. By entering this local church, right here in Santa Margarita, we enter a relationship that is supernatural and yet at the same time, very human; profoundly exclusive and, at the same time, of great public good to every neighborhood in which we live.

To commit to a Community Church is to participate in a process of personal growth and learn to do the same for others. That is the profound benefit of being part of Santa Margarita Community Church, when you commit to the commitments, you get 200 commitments back.

A Community Church is Ordinary

We are Community Church is a place where we celebrate our ordinary Christian lives. Our days count because, in Christ, every day is sacred.
