Thank you for visiting the website for the Venice church of Christ in Los Angeles, California!
Who We Are
We are Christians seeking to follow Jesus of Nazareth as our Lord and Savior on the Westside of Los Angeles. We are a diverse group of people whose shared faith in Jesus is greater than any of our differences. We represent a variety of cultures and are in a wide range of stages in life. We live in Culver City, Los Angeles, and Santa Monica, and we come from Los Angeles as well as from different parts of the United States and from other countries. We appreciate one another’s abilities, gifts, experiences, and insights. We are not perfect people and we do not expect perfection out of anyone else. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and seek to provide strength to one another by building each other up in faith.
What We Believe and Practice
We believe in God in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. We believe in Jesus of Nazareth as Christ the Lord, King of the whole universe. We believe that God has revealed Himself and His purposes for us in the Bible.
We are convinced that since Jesus is Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36), we are not. To that end, we seek to practice New Testament Christianity in twenty-first century Los Angeles, honoring Jesus as Lord by obeying Him according to His purposes for His Kingdom. We do not think we can improve upon what God has told us to do, so we simply seek to apply His message in the Bible to our current time and place. Therefore, the Bible is our guide for faith and practice: we are not affiliated with any denomination or larger religious organization, and we do not maintain statements of belief or creeds above and beyond the message of the Bible. In all things we strive to think, feel, and act as Jesus would have us think, feel, and act, and try to reflect Jesus’ attitudes and actions toward others (Romans 8:29).
How Can We Serve You?
As disciples, or followers, of Jesus, we love you as a fellow child of God and stand ready to help you in any way we can to follow Jesus as well (Matthew 28:18-20).
You are always welcome to join us during our assemblies. We are presently meeting in the Culver City Senior Center, Suites C71 and C73, on Sunday mornings at 9am for Bible Study and 10am for our assembly. We come together to learn more about God, Jesus, and the Bible, and to strengthen one another and build up each other; we want you to feel welcome and will treat you as our honored guest. Some of our members meet across the street in the Kaizuke Room at the Culver City Veterans’ Memorial at 7:30pm on Wednesday evening for a Bible study.
