Coming together as a local, Gospel-centered community is instrumental in seeing the love of Jesus proclaimed through our city and to our neighbors.
At Encounter we’re all about Jesus — and the only way to get to know Jesus is to begin with what he said about himself. That is why we gather every week to pray to Jesus, sing about Jesus, and to hear teaching from the Bible about how God is accomplishing his plan to rescue the world through Jesus.
JOIN US SUNDAYS AT 10AM
Encounter Christian Church is a family of diverse people from Bellflower and her surrounding cities. United by faith in Jesus Christ, we are driven by a authentic love for God and love for one another.
Worship connects our hearts with the heart of God. Through our creative expressions we retell the story of who God is, what He has done to pursue us, and how gratefully we respond. This is what we were created, saved and redeemed for.
The Pastors and Elders teach Christ-centered messages. Every message finds its way back to the main purpose why we gather which is to share the love of God through His Son, Jesus Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Our team has always been a melting pot of amazing people. From the newest team members to our originals, these people are the pioneers and implementers of all that we value and envision for the culture of Encounter Christian Church.
We love God’s kids! Our children's ministries are led by trained volunteers who have a passion to introduce kids to Christ and help them experience the love of Jesus. Join the FUN listening to age-appropriate bible stories, doing crafts, playing games, singing, making new friends and having a great time. We want kids to know that the Bible is full of interesting stories that matter in their lives today, that fun and games are definitely allowed at church, that worship can be full of loud music and silly dancing, and that there are adults in the church who truly want to love and lead them closer to Jesus. In other words, we want them to know that where God is, life is a lot more fun!
If you spend any time around our church at all, you'll quickly learn one thing: we love students. They're smart. They're funny. They're bold. And they're bursting with potential. We truly believe that the middle and high school students in our midst are world changers in the making.
That's why student ministry is such a huge part of what we do at our church. We want to guide our students in developing a personal faith in Christ as they step into their specific roles in the story He's writing with their lives. We work hard to create environments that engage students in good conversation about God, encouraging them to ask questions, search out answers, and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives.
Don't worry, all the good stuff at our church isn't just for the under 18 crowd! We have plenty of engaging events and gatherings designed to build the faith and community of our adults as well. Young or old, Christian or not, single or married, man or woman—we've got a place for you!
