Genuine, Gospel-centered Community is Hard to Find.
There is no shortage of churches in LA. We know that.
And many of them faithfully proclaim the gospel of God’s free grace, as we do.
Yet, it is difficult to find a community that is both genuinely welcoming and solid in Gospel-centered theology.
There is a spiritual thirst running deep in our community. We want to be another source of life giving hope to others – especially those who’ve not been to church in some time.
We want to revive thirsty souls by giving them the refreshing living water that Jesus offers (John 4:14).
At Prism Church the gospel of free grace is our life. Each week we eagerly gather to have our proverbial buckets refilled.
We’d be delighted to have you join us, and joyfully echo the cry of the prophet Isaiah, “Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat!” (Isaiah 55:1)
Why Are We Called Prism Church?
A “Prism” is the vehicle through which light passes to produce the beauty and colors of the spectrum. We desire to be a community that is alive to the glory of God in all of its manifold brilliance.
As Psalm 19 teaches, “The heavens declare the glory of God . . . The law of the LORD is perfect.” (Psalm 19:1,7) The symbol of the prism is a continual reminder of how our God has revealed Himself to us through Jesus, the light of the world.
Our desire is to be a church through which He shines through brilliantly and beautifully.
Secondly, Jesus came to offer salvation not to just one privileged people group, but rather the gospel is the hope of the entire world.
The colors of the spectrum represent for us the wonderful tapestry of different cultures and peoples, and the unity that we all find in Christ. (Matthew 24:14; Colossians 1:6, 23; Revelation 7:9)
Finally, “PRISM” forms an acronym that dictated to us the areas where we are first focusing our mission efforts: “Pasadena, ARcadia, & Sierra Madre.”
While our long term mission efforts include planting churches around L.A.’s San Gabriel Valley—and wherever else the Lord might lead—we are going to begin by serving as missionaries right here at home.
