Santa Anita Church
As a spiritual community set at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, we believe that each person has his or her own unique view of God and that each person represents a unique expression of God. There are as many pathways to God as there are people. It is only through our own spiritual journey that we find our way.
“Many, many pathways up the mountain, and the view is always the same at the summit!"
Our purpose as a spiritual community is to attract, inspire and empower those who seek to discover and expand their unique expression of God's light. Reaching out through prayer, music, education, and service, we celebrate in spiritual fellowship.
We envision a community where all people live to their full potential, experiencing love, peace, harmony, health, and abundance by practicing the Golden Rule and other teachings of Christ.

We believe that the One Kingdom of Heaven is within us, and that we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of it and accept it.
We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through the intuitive and spiritual nature of the individual, and that any person who lives in close contact with the indwelling God may become a revealer of Truth.
We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is attainable by all.
We believe that healing is the revealing of perfection already present.
