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 universal body of believers in Jesus Christ. 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 to the world.

Our hope and prayer is that we will see Los Angeles saturated with communities living as the body of Christ.


The gospel transforms cities culturally, socially, and spiritually.

• We see Los Angeles reconciled to God through Jesus

• We see our neighborhoods and city without need

• We see renewal  of Los Angeles culturally, social, and spiritually

• We see Missional Communities forming in every neighborhood.

• We see new churches started throughout the city.
