Our Vision for our Community of El Sereno.
In addition to being active in global evangelization, we believe that our testimony of our Lord should be first shared in our own back yard.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8 NIV
This passage is in the context of the first church in Acts, Jesus calling us to be witnesses in their own back yard which was Jerusalem, then into their region, then to nearby “foreign” areas and ultimately to the ends of the earth.
So how are we doing this? Through Breaking Bread. Our mission is to not only reach our friends and neighbors through evangelism, but this church has been called to reach the homeless, the outcast and those that live in the margins in our community to receive the grace and love of Christ. Once a month we go out to our neighborhood to feed, clothe, inspire and love on those who are going through challenging times in the name of Jesus. We also recently purchased a trailerable shower unit so that we can give showers on wheels to wherever the need is. Also, as follow up to our ministry, we continue to meet up and build those whom we have met, invite them to church and continue to show the love of Christ. Our philosophy is not to give quick fixes to the masses but to develop deep relationship with individuals and to transform one life at a time in the name of Jesus. Some of our members are from this outreach where through the help of Hillside, many of our homeless now have homes, have come into a loving church community and have acquired jobs. If you like to join our efforts to make a difference in peoples lives and in our community please contact us and we will happily give you more information.
