In 2009 New Church Whittier was founded by a small band of believers led by Glen & Suanne McWherter. This passage has led and strengthened us for many years:
8 Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. – Philippians 3:8-11
We pray you would be empowered too, by the encouragement of the scriptures and the love of a community of faith. Join us as we make disciples with Jesus. In 2017 Ian and Kathleen Macdonald joined us and started New Church Sherman Oaks. It’s an honor to partner with them, as God expands His Kingdom. Please make a point of subscribing to our email Bible and Church planting update.
