About Us

In an age of many disruptions, confusion, and chaos, we believe that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Our church community in Reseda, California, is not perfect by any means, but we are men, women, youth, and children, who come as we are to be transformed by the grace and love of Jesus and to be sent to make disciples of Jesus. The church is not a building or an organization but the people of God who reflect the love of God to a world that needs hope, love, and grace.

We are a multi-ethnic, multi-generational community seeking to know God in every aspect of our lives and to be the salt and light that Jesus calls us to be to our neighbors so that all would know about Jesus.

So we invite you to come as you are so that you are transformed by Christ and sent to make disciples.

As You Are Missionary Church is member of Vinia and Missionary Church/USA.

What we believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. We believe that heaven and hell are definite places.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling the Christian, enabling him to live a godly life.

We are, as believers, brother and sisters in Christ, equal, fraternally one in Christ, each born again of the Spirit of God.

We are each and all one, co-equal members of the body of Christ, bought by His shed blood. We affirm that we will attempt to honorably serve each other before ourselves.

Our Values & Commitments

Community Outreach

Cultural Diversity

Christ Centered

Seedling in soil

We are committed to proclaiming the gospel in our local community through word and deed. We will demonstrate God’s love and communicate His gospel by meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our local community.

We are committed to being a united congregation that celebrates all of God’s people. We will assemble a united congregation that reflects our community by intentionally celebrating and ministering to every race, ethnicity, nationality, and culture.

Loving God

We are committed to bring glory to the Triune God by seeking intimacy with Him. We will teach and model in each ministry of the Church these core biblical foundations: prayer, fasting, worship, stewardship, and meditating on His word.

We are committed to walk with the risen Christ as the head of the church and to being conformed to His likeness. We will come alongside people demonstrating Christlikeness in our relationships, marriages and families.

Biblical Teaching

We are committed to studying, teaching, and living in obedience to the entirety of God’s word.

We will boldly preach God’s word with integrity and truth that will build up believers through small groups, classes, and bible studies.


We are committed to being disciples of Christ that make disciples. We will walk with Christ and be discipled by him as we intentionally make disciples and develop spiritually mature men and women.


We are committed to commune with one another for the purpose of developing genuine relationships that glorify God. We will create a welcoming and loving atmosphere to encourage one another and share each other’s burdens.
