Welcome to Sonrise Westside Community Church

We are an independent, non-denominational church in Venice, California.  Come worship with us!

Vision & Core Values

Why the focus on Vision and Core Values?

That's a good question. It's not unusual in many churches to hear about the vision, mission, core values, and so on only to get lost in a maze of definitions. At Sonrise we strive to keep it simple. We do this by being specific about the vision God has given us and the core values we have to get there. No extra baggage, just a destination from God and a road map to get us there. After all, life with God is a journey...won't you join us in the adventure?

The Vision of Sonrise:

  • Exalt Jesus Christ
  • Encourage the community
  • Educate followers of Christ
  • Expand God's kingdom

The Core Values of Sonrise:

  • Character...A Christ-like life
  • Worship...Honoring God in word and deed
  • Relationship...Loving God and others
  • Spirit Led...God's presence in all we do
  • Prayer...Life changing communication
  • Discipleship...Growing in faith, hope, and love
  • The Bible...God's love letter to us
