Our Values

The following Scripture passages embody the values, spirit and ministry of West Hollywood Church.  Our motto is, “we take all of scripture seriously, not just selected portions literally.”

“The spirit of God is upon me because God has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  God has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to those who are blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of our God.”  Luke 4: 18-19

“In the end, there are three things of enduring value:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.”  I Corinthians 13:13

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and those who love are born of God and know God.  Those who do not love do not know God; for God is LOVE.”  I John 4:  7-8

If anyone says, “I Love God,” and hates another person, that person is a liar; for those who do not love other persons whom we know and can see, cannot love God, whom we have not seen.  And this commandment we have from God, that those who love God should also love all other persons of this world, those who are our brothers and sisters of the world community.”  I John 4: 20-21

“In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female (gay nor straight).  We are All One in Christ.”  Galatians 3:28

“Together we are the body of Christ, and individually members of that one body.” I Corinthians 12:27

“To each is given a gift to use for the common good.”  I Corinthians 12: 7

“God has showed you what is good; and what does God require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”  Micah 6:8
