Church of God of San Jose exists "to guide people to be faithful followers of Christ."
We strive to be a church where people can come and experience God, not religion. Jesus came to start a movement, not an institution. We don't want to just "have church." We want to experience the power and presence of God in our worship and in our daily lives.
We are a fellowship that highly values LOVE. Learning to Love God and Love People is what being a follower of Jesus is all about (Matthew 22:36-40).
We are a fellowship that highly values GRACE. The gospel is the "good news." Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world (John 3:16-17). Therefore, we believe that Christ's people should not be condemning or judgmental, but full of love and grace as they communicate to the world that Jesus died and rose again to bring forgiveness to anyone who will receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word and the sole authority for how we live our lives and how our fellowship is ordered.
We want to be a joyful, fun place for people to find new friends and grow in their relationship with God.
