Brea - Southlands Church Brea

2950 E Imperial Hwy

If Southlands were a town, the Gospel would be Main Street, the central hub and heart-throb of our gathering, living and moving. The life of our community is found at the foot of a bloody cross and the mouth of an empty grave.

The Gospel is the means by which this community relates. Having been redeemed by God’s grace we seek to live graciously with one another. Our love for Jesus is tested horizontally in our love for one another. We value authenticity, doing our best to discard the masks of pretense. We have exchanged the fig leaf for the cross. Shame and denial have been replaced by grace and truth.

The Gospel means that we are all a people on God’s Mission. This mission requires our presence in the world. As Jesus was sent, so are we. We see God’s image in every individual. We seek to live relationally, with patience and compassion towards the world. The Gospel humanizes people. Being on God’s mission also includes the proclamation of a Message. We believe that every believer is called to the happy discipline of proclaiming Christ, imploring all people to be reconciled to God. We understand that the happiest hour in heaven is the hour when one sinner repents, and this too is our aim and delight.

My wife and I first visited Southlands four years ago and are so thankful to have found this church and community. We love the gospel centered preaching, their willingness to listen to the Holy Spirit, and their multiplying culture of creating communities on mission all for the gospel. This is a church that truly loves their city and the people around them. If you live in the Brea area and are looking for a church, a family, or to learn more about Jesus. I highly recommend Southlands Church.

I love this church. I've been to so many churches and never felt so connected like I do here. It's a great church family that balances it's size very well with small groups and many community events. The preaching is always biblically sound and easy to understand not to mention the worship is fantastic.

Pretty good preaching but the paninis were cold.

I have been attending Southlands my entire life. Good balance of Gods Word and Spirit. I recommend Southlands to any of my friends and family who are looking for a church

I've been attending Southlands for over 10 years and really appreciate what God has done through this church. We are not a "Perfect Church", if that existed, but we are a group of people who are seeking to know God by the truth of the Bible and to make God know to our communities in our everyday lives. God bless you in your search for a home church. David Vera
