COMMITMENTS OF AGAPE GROUPS:
Accountability: This means you choose to be known and subject to (Ephesians5:21) one another, sharing honestly your failings as well as victories. Regular review of spiritual disciplines will be shared with absolute confidentiality maintained.
Gathering: The Agape Group commits to meeting weekly. This becomes the context then for sharing, encouraging, admonishing, and praying.
Admonishing: This lost ministry in the church is an absolute necessity for our Body to become and stay healthy (Romans15:14). Admonish means to warn or confront. Practice it diligently after you are sure you have God’s agape love toward another member.
Prayer: Commit to intercede on each member’s behalf every day. You will develop closeness as a group as you invest in each member’s life through interceding on their behalf.
Encouragement: This is the heart of what God’s love does for another person. It is God’s nature to encourage us, and He wants us to reflect His character to each other.
New groups are formed every six months. If interested contact the church office.
If you have a skill or talent you’d like to share, contact: Clay Henderson: (949) 422-7439

Hook Drama Ministry
Hook Ministry exists to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of all and for all, in ourJerusalem,Judea, and to the uttermost parts of the earth. We minister for the sake of His name and for His glory in street ministry by use of evangelistic dramas.
We use a non-threatening device called a “hook” to open a door of opportunity to speak with those God has divinely appointed to come across our path. A hook is a means of drawing people in and catching their attention. We currently use drama, music, and sometimes dance to “hook” those God has been drawing.
We are currently serving at the Huntington Beachpier on Saturday nights between the hours of7pm&11pm. We desire to share in one place consistently and be a regular source of blessing to that area. We have also shared with people aroundCinemaCityand most recently in downtownSanta Ana’s artist village with Break Free Ministry.
Anyone who is interested in praying for us or partnering with us in anyway can contact the church office.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
USHERS also serve every other week, assisting the body with any questions they might have, escorting new friends to the correct classroom, handing out bulletins, and assisting in communion and offering.

Salt and Light Ministry
“You are the salt of the earth…you are the light of the world.” Matthew 5:13, 14
The Salt and Light Ministry is a non-partisan informational ministry providing resources that promote good government according to Biblical principles without any political party affiliation.
The Bible instructs us to be godly citizens and respect the powers that be, even if they are contrary to what we may believe. However, we can use our freedom to lovingly and respectfully let our voices be heard. The Salt and Light Ministry is designed to inform you of the frequently changing laws and pending legislation that will affect our religious and personal freedoms.
We want to better equip Christians with an understanding of the secular governing process, and to empower Christians to become a stronger influence with elected public officials. Our goal is to encourage those officials to enact and support sound public policies that protect our religious and personal freedoms. We conduct regular voter registration and will encourage all Christians to vote in every election.
We are not here to argue politics or side with any political affiliation; we are here to provide tools for furthering the Gospel of Christ and to honor our Lord through prayer, Scripture, and biblically principled laws and legislation.

“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wealth, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Titus 2 Mentoring
As a young woman, have you ever desired the experience, empathy and spiritual maturity of an older woman to come along side of you?
Titus 2:3-5 places the responsibility for teaching and discipling younger women upon mature godly women. The Titus 2 Ministry is a one-on-one relationship pairing older and younger Christian women for the purpose of developing a supportive friendship, encouraging one another in Christ and living according to God’s Word.
Each relationship is developed and built on mutual trust and respect to create a confidential safe harbor.
What does Scripture say the older woman is to model and teach?
- Love for her husband (single women, family and friends)
- Love for her children
- Managing a home well
- Biblical submission to her own husband
- Honorable Living
- Reality and Integrity
To find out how you can be paired up with another sister in Christ, call the church office.
