Our Purpose

Encounter Church exists to glorify God by growing and multiplying disciples who are: immersed in the gospel, living in community and unleashing compassion in our city and beyond. 

Our BHAG (Big Holy Audacious Goal) 

In the next ten years our dream is that everyone in the greater Bellflower area will know they are welcome at Encounter Church and that we are all about sharing the love and truth of Jesus. The Big Holy Audacious Goal is a crazy goal that is impossible to achieve but the idea is to get us focusing outward onto our community. At the heart of this goal is to reach as many people as possible sharing the love, compassion and truth of Jesus. 


What to Expect

  • WHAT WE BELIEVE

    "THE SHORT ANSWER"

    • There is one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Everything was created by God (including man).
    • The first man; Adam, along with his wife Eve, sinned and brought sin into the world resulting in the separation between God and man.
    • God the Father sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross to redeem man from his fallen state.
    • God the Father resurrected Jesus on the third day after His death to pay the price of sin for everyone who believes in Him by faith.
    • Everyone now has an opportunity to be saved by having faith in the work of Jesus. Man is saved by grace, not by works.
    • Jesus is the head of the church, which is made up of people worldwide who have accepted by faith the saving work of Jesus Christ.
    • Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to lead and guide the church.
    • The Holy Spirit still manifests His gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12.
    • Jesus is coming soon to judge the living and the dead and establish His kingdom on earth.  
  • At Encounter you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and a practical, relevant message. Children are well-cared for in our loving, quality nursery and fun-filled Children's Church service.

  • If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out our church and be "anonymous” for a while and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

  • You’ll find everything from casual clothes to shorts at our Services. Wear what is comfortable for you, because Encounter Church is not about what you look like or what you wear.

  • Community Groups are an important part of Encounter Church. In fact, you haven’t fully experienced our church until you’ve experienced our Community Groups. Community Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. Groups are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you.
