OUR TRUTHS

Jesus Christ is our Savior - Matthew 1:21 - And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.

 

Jesus Christ is our Healer - Matthew 8:17 -  This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.”

 

Jesus Christ is who baptizes with the Holy Spirit - Acts 1:4-5 - And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

 

Jesus Christ is our Life giver - John 10:10 - The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

 

Jesus Christ is our soon coming King - 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 - For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

HOW WE DO IT

CONNECTION

We are a church that seeks to honor God and influence our society with our love and testimony. As we are conscious that God made a connection with each one of us, we seek to connect each individual to the person of Christ as well as our spiritual family through worshiping together and participating in Christian fellowship.

FORMATION

Each area of Christian service is an opportunity to train, disciple and love each other. We invest our time, dedication and effort in the preparation and formation of new leaders. We teach others, sowing Biblical principles and values, preparing them for ministry to this congregation as well as training of pastors and ministers for the establishment of new churches and ministries.

MULTIPLICATION

Multiplication is a way of life that produces more life. It is one of God’s commands to us: “…Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…” (Genesis 1:28). We are called to train others for service by transmitting our values, energy and vision and teach them to do the same with others. Our goal, as a church, is to multiply ourselves and communicate to others the truths from God’s Word so that their lives can be changed, and in turn, send them out to transform the lives of others.

Pastor Jim Tolle is the Pastor of El Camino Metro www.elcaminometro.com, a new church in Los Angeles which offers services in both Spanish and English.

OUR CHURCH

El Camino Metro is a three-year old church in Los Angeles led by a team of visionary people and headed by Pastor Jim Tolle. While being a new church, El Camino Metro has a weekly average attendance of 4,000 people and it currently offers six (6) weekly services in both Spanish and English. Dr. Tolle and his team have started numerous churches in the Los Angeles region over the last 15 years, most notably, La Iglesia En El Camino in Van Nuys, which grew into one of the largest congregations in the United States.

 

El Camino Metro's vision is to serve the rich diversity of people living in the Los Angeles metropolitan region, and consequently strives to reach deeply into the community. We strongly believe in the importance of education.  Our commitment is reflected in the many opportunities we offer through our formal education programs which offer community college, as well as university classes resulting in AA, BA and MA degrees. in 2014 El Camino Metro and its leadership founded an educational institute called El Camino Christian College. In addition to college classes, El Camino Christian College also offers GED, ESL and vocational opportunities. El Camino Metro Church also seeks to benefit the community through initiatives such as a Christian Leadership Institute, marriage seminars, parenting classes, youth internships, prison outreaches, addiction relief programs and a daily Spanish radio broadcast. The vitality of El Camino Metro comes from their Christian beliefs and compassion, as well as the goodwill of the many hundreds of volunteers, all from different cultural backgrounds. We work together seeking to express Gods heart to everyone we encounter.

 

What is in a name?

 

We call ourselves El Camino because it means “pathway.” We believe that the pathway to experience eternal life is Jesus Christ. We use the word “Metro” to indicate our calling to impact the Los Angeles metropolitan area with the love and life which Jesus Christ offers.
