Verse of the week

Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus. (Acts 4:29-30, NIV).

Despite the threats from the authorities, the Early Church resolved to move forward with courage. They prayed for boldness to preach the gospel. Boldness should not be mistaken for reckless impulsiveness. Boldness requires courage to press on through fear and to do what we know is right.

How can we develop greater boldness in our life? Like the disciples, we need to pray with others. To gain boldness, we can pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and we can look for opportunities in our family and neighborhood to talk about Jesus. As we share about the hope that Jesus offers, it’s also important to remember that rejection and social discomfort might be a part of the equation. Keep your head up in these moments! God has not abandoned you. He is with you and he is working through your life. So keep preaching the gospel with boldness!

Our Story

In the early ’60s, the Assemblies of God church of Canoga Park planted a new church in Simi Valley. The gatherings were held in a home on the east end of the valley until the house-church purchased the property at 171 Royal Avenue. Over the decades we have seen God move in powerful ways, transform lives, and the future looks bright!

Where we’re going

We are taking intentional steps to meet the needs of a post-Christian world that is embedded in a postmodern cultural context. We believe the Gospel is “the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” and are committed to living for Jesus in a secular world while loving people with the love of Christ (Romans 1:16).


We’d love to meet you in person. If you would like to visit our church, our campus is located on the west end of Simi Valley. Click on the following link for directions: Church of the Living Christ
