WHAT DOES SOMA MEAN?
Soma is the greek word used throughout the New Testament for body, particularly used to describe the church. Soma is used to describe two fundamental aspects of the church who hope to display: the Church as the incarnation of Jesus and the church as an interconnected and interdependent. We chose this name because it captures who we are: not just a group of people that meet once a week, but a present and unified family displaying the good news of Jesus in the places God has sent us throughout the city.
Our hope and prayer is that we will see Los Angeles saturated with communities living as the body of Christ.
WHY WE EXIST
We are a church proclaiming Jesus in the westside of Los Angeles through word and deed. We exist to see Los Angeles saturated with the gospel so that every man, woman, and child has a daily encounter with Jesus. Our hope and prayer is to see Soma continually experience revival in our hearts and participate in the renewal of Los Angeles.
Where we're headed
Over the next 10 years, we see our church multiplying into a family of churches in Los Angeles by planting multiple churches throughout the city as we equip, resource, and send missional communities and church planting teams.
We believe the fruit of that work will result in a transformed city culturally, socially, and spiritually.
We see the people of Los Angeles reconciled to God through Jesus
We see our neighborhoods and city without need
We see Missional Communities forming in every neighborhood.
We see new churches started throughout the city.
