WHO WE ARE

We exist to know Him and make Him known


OUR BELIEFS

We Are All About Jesus!


We believe in Salvation, The Gifts of The Holy Spirit, Divine Healing and The Second Coming of Christ. 

OUR VALUES


We preach grace not guilt


We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone and that we should follow in his steps. Who are we to pass judgment and not extend grace, when we ourselves have sinned?  We believe we should love the sinner, not banish them.

We love worship & believe in the power of prayer


We believe that Jesus is central to everything. We believe that prayer is a direct line to God, and that we should speak to Him every chance we get. Worship is our chance to praise God and we take joy in doing so.


We believe in the importance of fellowship


We are called to join in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe that reaching out to the lost and engaging with them will strengthen our bond with each other through God.

We are a church without walls


Jesus called us to go out and spread the word of God. We believe that this is not done enough. We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken. We hope that you will join us in doing so.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Come as you are



We want you to be comfortable. People wear a range of styles, from jeans and t-shirts to dresses and suits. No matter how you prefer to dress, you will be welcomed here.


Our services include worship and Biblical teaching. Typically, they are 80 minutes long. Expect to be treated the same way we treat everyone. The people of Arleta First can be unusually friendly - expect quite a few handshakes. But we also respect that people often want to just check things out. We welcome new guests but we won't embarrass you. 

​​​​​​​

We offer a safe, Biblical Kids Ministry at our church. Nursery - 5th grade is provided at every service and Jr. High and High School classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9AM. Your children will be well taken care of by trained leaders who teach age appropriate lessons. Your children are also welcome to join you in the main service if you prefer.
