What kind of people go to ACTS?
ACTS is full of normal people, just like you! Some are Contractors, some are Doctors, some work in Retail, some are Business Owners, some are Teachers, some are Retired, some are Students.
We are a multi-generational and multi-racial Church that just plain loves people and loves life! ACTS is a relational Church. You can visit and hang out, but what we really want is to get to know you – and for you to get to know us so that we can live out life together.
At ACTS we’ve started to learn that when we live for something bigger than our ‘selves’ our real selves start to emerge, as they should have always been. And the ‘something bigger’ is the church for which Jesus came and gave Himself.
At ACTS this means loving, serving and preferring one another. It means each of us finding our part and learning to serve with the gifts God gives, covering each other’s weaknesses and always being each other’s biggest fans. Sometimes it will mean the church shining, while as individuals we are in the background unnoticed.
The world is full of ways in which men and women use people for their own career path or reputation. Meanwhile, God is building a community where gifted people, who could do their own thing, gladly commit themselves to one another because they have seen something greater.
ACTS began in 2011 when Kevin & Lorna Matthews were directed by God to relocate their ministry to Southern California. A handful of people met together to hear their vision and the ACTS Center was born.
The idea of an “ACTS Center” had been a long time “dream” of Kevin & Lorna’s, birthed when they were ministering around the world, a vibrant and exciting Church that would reflect the priorities found in the Book of ACTS, of worship, ministry, prayer, outreach, training and sending.
The ACTS Center has developed over the last years and has begun to reflect all of those priorities. God has brought together a wonderful group of talented and passionate people who want to reach the City, the Region, the Nation and the Nations of the world with Kingdom Life and Power.
ACTS is no longer a “dream”, it is a reality. Not just “Church as usual”, but a place where God is free to move, a place where miracles happen on a regular basis, a place where people can grow and learn and fulfill the call of God on their lives.
Are you a part of a denomination?
Acts is a non-denominational Church, that means that we welcome people to Worship from all denominational backgrounds, Catholic, Evangelical, Episcopal, Pentecostal etc.
ACTS has very close relationships with other Pastors and Churches nationally and internationally some of who serve on the Board of Directors.
