Here at The Church On The Way Santa Clarita, we believe in Loving God, Serving People, and Changing Lives. This is more than a motto, it's a lifestyle! When lived out, these principles act as sort of a spiritual math equation:
Loving God + Serving People = Changing Lives
- Our first priority as believers is to love God. In fact, it's the primary responsibility of a disciple as described by Jesus in Matthew 22:37-38: "Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.'" Everything begins with us loving God - from our worship time to our teachings, our focus is always on putting God first in our lives.
- Our second priority as disciples is described just one verse later in Matthew: "You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself." If we are living our lives in pursuit of being more like Jesus, then we're going to love what He loves - and that's people! Our love for those around us is shown in service to our community and the fellowship we have as a church family on a weekly basis.
- When we live our lives with a focus on loving God first, and serving people second, there is a product, or "sum" that takes place in people's lives - change! Just like one plus two will always equal three, loving God and serving people always equals changed lives!
Come partner with us in seeing lives changed at The Church On The Way Santa Clarita!
