WELCOME, WE ARE GLAD YOU STOPPED BY
A LETTER FROM YOUR FOUNDERS
For The Peoples Church exists to spread the aroma of the knowledge of Christ so that people would see the greatness of what He has purchased and be moved to glorify our Father in heaven.
Church is not a business to manage but a body to honor. And unity of the body is established in Christ Jesus. So with Jesus as our head and at our center, we consider it a humbling honor to be entrusted with the planting of a church. Adding to the numbers of both the Global and Local Churches that God is using to do what He does best, expand His Kingdom.
Empowered and emboldened by the Holy Spirit, we exist to point people to the unexplainable freedom and love that is found only in Christ Jesus by sharing with people the beautiful and wrecking truth of The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our heart as a church is to keep the main thing, the main thing. We don't want followers of our church or leaders, we want to build followers of Christ, disciples of Christ, ambassadors of Christ. We want people to leave each week thinking “what a great Savior.” We don’t want a complacent audience, we want an activated ARMY.
We consider the privilege not simply in our capacity to sit but rather our capacity to SEND. What good is 5,000 seats filled and multiple campuses if it doesn’t serve to advance the Kingdom?
We say that Jesus is our agenda because the Body, is HIS Body. We are nothing without Him and we have nothing to share if it isn’t Him.
We were recently asked “Why are you planting a church, and what is your vision? Is there something lacking in other LA churches that you believe you can supply?”
The answer is simple, we are planting a church because we believe that God called us to. Not because something is lacking in other churches (there are so many incredible churches here in Los Angeles, and we feel so honored that God has added to their numbers by including us in that number) and as believers we lovingly obey the command of our Father no matter the cost.
This has and continues to be such a humbling season, as God expands our capacity for Him and in turn recognition of Him and His will for this House and its people.
Church planting is intentional heart and Biblically rooted practical work with a significant spiritual weight. It takes seeking His face to a level of depth you probably did not know was possible in order to steward biblically.
We are far from perfect and there will be many things we figure out as we go but there are some fundamental parts of planting a church that need to be in place. The elements necessary in a church for it to be considered a church that is submitted to Christ and that is of utmost importance to us.
That means we might have a longer launch timeline then most, but
The Bride of Christ is worth doing it right,
The Bride of Christ is worth taking our time,
The Bride of Christ is worth protecting, serving, shepherding, and loving.
Knowing that in grace, God will supernaturally multiply our efforts because He builds His Church.
His glory, His name, His Church, that is our reason.
It may be tempting to think that God is calling us to do a new thing. But what He is calling us to do, He already spoke. Outlined so clearly in His infallible Word. What He is calling us to do is the ORIGINAL thing because His design is where He resides.
The church is HIS church and This House is His House.
We ask for your prayers as we walk out this preparation season as church planters (theologically, spiritually, physically, prayerfully, personally, etc.) that our hearts would continue to be aligned with God’s every step of the way, and that The Gospel is not only heard in this house, but that it is protected and received by the people God has entrusted to us and us to them.
In the mean time, check the "gatherings" page for a full list of upcoming meet-ups, sign up at the bottom of this page to receive updates and head to the "Team" page to join our family!
Thank you so much for stopping by, we love you already!
With prayers & love,
Travis & Kyra Gold
FØR THE P Ē Ø P Ł Ë Š
The Agenda: JESUS
The message is Jesus.
The means is Jesus.
The ends is Jesus.
The standard is Jesus.
And the Glory is God’s....
We are unapologetic in our obedience…WHY?
Because God said and our ultimate desire in life is Him.
Why peoples and not people? Isn't peoples a plural of a plural?
We used the word peoples to show that we don't exist for a certain type of person or people group, we exist for any person of any people group that is called to and therefore entrusted to our ministry and church.
Peoples speaks to the inclusive nature of this house and the logo
"P Ē Ø P Ł Ë Š" represents the various people groups coming together to worship our God.
