Local Missions

Acting Locally

"...you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria...". (Acts 1:8)

At all times God calls us to action locally and globally for all people.
We are His witnesses for the world to see His love and hope. We believe God created us to work together for the good of our city and live that out with our local partner organizations.

Visit our Volunteer Hub to act locally in Costa Mesa and Orange County to live as God's witness.

Ways to care for our community in this time



We believe that God hears us when we pray and that He can do more than we can ask or imagine. Check out how you can pray with the Church throughout Costa Mesa and Orange County.
