Arcadia Friends Community Church
Arcadia Friends Community Church is located in Arcadia, California. Our church has a rich, 70-year history in the community, and is part of the Friends Southwest denomination.
We have one worship service each week, with an attendance of about 80 people. A 45-50-minute Sunday School class follows our church service.
Wednesday night activities include studies and prayer beginning at 7 pm.
Our church is financially healthy, growing in our faith, love, and obedience to Christ. We are very loving toward one another – from the strong bonds among our youth and their families, to the womens weekly prayer ministry, and all ages in between. We have a dedicated elder board and an exceptional group of volunteer ministry team leaders that are committed to lead and strengthen our church. In addition, we enjoy fellowship with one another, corporate worship, and serving the Lord together.
Arcadia Friends Community Church desires to glorify God (I Corinthians 10:31) by submitting in all things to the authority of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18), as revealed in His Word (II Timothy 3:16-17). We are a church that will…
- Love God above all else, and with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. We love God by:
Learning and obeying Christ’s commandments (John 14:15, 21, 23; I John 5:3)
Confessing and repenting when we fall short (I John 1:8-9)
Worshipping Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)
- Love our neighbors as ourselves. We love our neighbors the way Christ commands, by:
Showing mercy and pity by sacrificing time and money to meet the physical needs of those in our path (Luke 10:27-37). We are particularly mindful of the needs of our fellow believers (John 13:34-35), widows and orphans (James 1:27), and the hungry, thirsty, sick, and imprisoned (Matthew 25:31-46).
Speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15)
Being patient and kind, with no envy or pride; never delighting in evil, but rejoicing in the truth (I Corinthians 13:4,6)
- Make disciples in our homes, in Arcadia, and throughout the world, by:
Proclaiming the gospel of repentance and faith (Matt 4:17, Mark 1:15). Faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17), through the illumination of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 2:10-16). Then, for those who believe…
Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19), and
Teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded (Matthew 28:20). By hearing and obeying the words of Christ, our lives, and our church, are built upon the Rock (Matthew 7:24-27)
Disciplining our brothers and sisters, whom we love, for their good (Hebrews 12:10-11, Matthew 18:15-17)
- Be a house of prayer (Matthew 21:13), where we unceasingly praise our God for all His goodness to us (Psalm 103:1-20), and humbly petition our Father in heaven to:
Build His kingdom and work his will on earth (Matthew 6:10)
Meet our physical needs (Matthew 6:11)
Have mercy on us and forgive our sins, as we forgive others (Matthew 6:12, Luke 18:13)
Lead us away from temptation and deliver us from evil (Matthew 6:13)
Send out workers to the lost (Matthew 9:38), submitting to his call to be those workers where he directs.
- Thus, be blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:2) at home, across the nation, and around the world!
