We started Simi Church in 2015 with thirty people and one goal: To bring those who are far from Christ near. In 2016 we merged with Shoreline Church and now are one church with two worship services in Simi Valley and Oxnard. Our plan is to keep expanding worship services throughout Ventura County.
We believe the Bible is the best source of truth in our world today. In it we learn that Jesus lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and rose to life again. It is in this belief that we baptize repentant people for the forgiveness of sins and teach them to obey all that Jesus commands. Simply put, we believe in the message and ministry of Jesus Christ.
At Simi Church the Bible is central to our belief, teaching and practice. While many disbelieve, deny and distance themselves from scripture; we embrace it. What seems foolish to some and controversial to others, we've found to be sound and sensible.
God's Word can be trusted.
If Jesus was anything, he was loving. But bad choices, situations, and outcomes have separated us from Him and each other. Yet Jesus offers a refuge for broken and hurting people. It's called "Church" and is the place where His love and acceptance is available to all.
Come as you are, commit when you're ready.
More than a superficial change in behavior, repentance is a profound change of perspective. Grace is God's active love towards those who can't earn and don't deserve it. While no one is excluded from the grace of God, not everyone will receive it. Likewise, anyone can repent, but not everyone does.
We want you to experience both.
