Pastors Richard and Corrine Cardoza
The year 2019 marks 39 years in the ministry for us. After pastoring in other parts of California we came with our three children to Sacramento in 1988. It was here that we assumed the pastorate of a church and began to put down roots. It has always been in our hearts to help people to know and follow Jesus Christ through the strong teaching of God's Word.
After pastoring in this city for six years, we obtained our peaceful 15-acre facility on the former Mather AFB. Here on this beautiful property we are seeing the vision God put in our hearts years ago begin to come to pass.
As a church we are a family of believers in Jesus Christ with a mission to reach people with the message of God's love, teach them how to live according to God's word, and to establish them in their faith.
We believe that God has a good plan for everyone's life. We also believe that each person has a vital part in the community of God. We invite you to be a part of The Lord's Church where we are growing together in God's love.
To Reach, to Teach and to Establish people in the Grace and Truth of our Lord Jesus Christ, so that we can be effective witnesses for the purpose of helping others to know and follow Him.
To Reach: to take the message of Jesus Christ individually to our community and the world, and to bring people into fellowship as members of The Lord's Church. We see that the primary way our church is going to reach the lost is as individual believers.
To Teach: to effectively share the Word of God in the congregational setting, in small group settings, and in the individual setting, so that people will pursue a relationship with God and become equipped to be all that He has called them to be.
To Establish: to firmly settle or fix those who are members of The Lord's Church in Grace and Truth so that they would become committed disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, willing and obedient to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.
What we believe:
• In the one God manifested in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
• In the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Son of God come in the flesh, and is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
• In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood.
• In His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
• In His soon-coming return in power and glory as the Lord of Lords and King of Kings
• In the fall of man and his need for rebirth through confession and belief in Jesus Christ.
• In the reality of Satan and Jesus' victory over him.
• In the present-day supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit who bestows spiritual gifts upon believers.
• That every person is significant and has a special part in God's work, and that every believer is a minister in the eyes and hands of Jesus. We are here to equip Ambassadors that they may help others to know and follow Jesus Christ.
