Worship


Worship (upward)

 

The Way of God as revealed in Jesus draws us to respond with deep devotion

in our daily lives through thought, word, and deed. As we worship, we are

reminded of God’s transcendence as well as God’s intimate participation in

our lives; this relationship enables us to grow in honesty with ourselves,

others, and God. Matthew 22:37

roots.jpg

roots


Roots (backward)

 

Looking backward, we discover our roots in the teachings, songs, poetry, and

stories of the Bible. We encounter hope in God's desire for justice, healing,

equality, and peace. We affirm the central truths of the Christian faith, seeing

ourselves in a long line of generations past who continually searched for a

deeper understanding of God. It is with a sense of gratitude and humility we

embrace our Adventist heritage. 1 John 1:1-4, Luke 1:1-4, 2 Peter 1:16-21

journey


Journey (forward)

 

We believe we are called to join with what God is already doing in the world.

Therefore it is essential that we continually explore creative ways to live out

and communicate the teachings of Christ. As we journey together, Jesus

reveals himself to us. Our faith leads us to anticipate change, expect

innovation, and welcome renewal. Matthew 13:31-33, Luke 24:13-33;

Exodus 40:36-37

belonging


Belonging (withward)

 

To belong is more than an affiliation, or even a membership. To belong is to

have a home, to be held and to hold. We see the character of God reflected in

all the depth, beauty, and diversity of God's people. We have been called to

share our lives with each other—to suffer and celebrate together, to bear each

other's burdens, to confess our faults with one another, to pray for one

another, and to lift each other up. The Way of Jesus cannot be lived alone.

1Corinthians 12:12-27, Acts 2:42-47

wholeness


Wholeness (inward)

 

We recognize the weakness of our individual humanity. We are filled with

thanks that God works to restore us from the inside out and that all our fears,

failures, and brokenness can be made whole. Embracing the love revealed in

Jesus restores us to God, to ourselves, to each other, and to

creation. Ephesians 3:14-21, 2 Corinthians 5:17

serving


Serving (outward) 

 

With humility, we accept the Way of Jesus as our own. Led by the Spirit of

God, he committed himself to relieving suffering and fighting injustice; this,

too, is our passion. We believe the Church is at its best when it serves

humanity, when it cares about the things God cares about. We count it a

privilege to introduce others to Jesus and to encourage them in their spiritual

walk. Luke 4:16-21

Welcome Statement


You can Belong here...
 

At the San Luis Obispo Adventist Church, we are committed to our mission

of "Becoming the Presence of Christ in Our Community." Jesus did not shun

any group of people, but was willing to engage everyone. God's love is

broader and deeper than we can fathom. A sense of belonging in the church

should, likewise, be open and generous. Because all people are created in

God's image, Christ's love extends to everyone. All are welcome to engage,

participate, and serve in our church community. We embrace the challenge of

being a diverse community, which encourages dialogue and welcomes

questions, as we continue to identify the ways God is at work in all of our

lives. We believe this will ultimately enrich us and be a witness for the

kingdom of God. Romans 5:18-21
