Our Purpose and Vision


Our Purpose: To know Jesus intimately and to share His love and truth passionately,

Our Vision: Valuing our strategic international location, our passion is to be a church family of committed disciples of Jesus as diverse as our community, who reflect the beauty and love of Jesus, and who urgently take the Gospel of Jesus to our neighbors and to the nations.

From our Purpose and Vision, these become the Essential Involvements:

Discover
- God in His glory through His Son, Jesus Christ, and the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit.
- The transforming power of the Bible, the authoritative Word of God.
- The personal relationship that we have in Christ pursued through personal Bible study and prayer, smaller
   groups and weekly corporate worship.

Love
- The Church, as a spiritual family composed of people from different backgrounds, culture, ages, and
  economics connected in worship, smaller groups, and service.
- The lost, urging them to be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.
- Each other with patience, kindness, humility, gentleness, persevering for the family of God.

Serve
- The world by sharing our faith and proclaiming the hope we have in Christ.
- Others by using our time, talents and resources as given by God for the service of His Kingdom.
- Within our family, vocation, and location to help advance the kingdom of God.

 

Our History

In 1956 two separate groups of Christians – a group of young couples in Torrance and another group from a small Covenant Church in San Pedro -- were praying about establishing a church in the South Bay. God soon brought them together, and they embarked on a journey to form Rolling Hills Covenant Church. April 14, 1957 was the first organizational date for the church of 52 members.  We celebrated our 50-year anniversary during the first weekend of May 2007.


Several hallmarks have characterized Rolling Hills Covenant Church throughout its 50+ year history:

  • A reliance on the Bible as God’s Word,  
  • An external focus to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our local community and throughout the world.  Since our first missionaries were commissioned to serve in Honduras in 1962, the church has had a missions presence in more than 75 countries worldwide;
  • A priority for cultivating the spiritual development of our children in fun, age-appropriate activities;
  • A love for worship that is reflected in music, drama, and the arts, which today culminate in our annual performance of Pageant of the Lord.
  • A vision for planting churches.  Download the contact list of Our Family of Church Plants >>
