We believe that through bold acts of compassion and generosity, we can make the love of God known and felt in our world. We believe that as we work together with a heart of sacrifice, we can right wrongs, bring light into darkness, and heal the hurting. When God wants to change the world, He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Our prayer is that the love and generosity that Jesus has shown us would overflow out of our lives and into the world around us - bringing change and hope. Church of God of San Jose partners with some incredible organizations to help make a difference in peoples' lives.
The Church of God is the home of the 4others organization. 4others is committed to being a driving force in the fight against poverty, preventable disease, and injustice. We conduct reproducible campaigns designed to inspire and equip people to live their lives for others. 4others partners with non-profit organizations to raise public awareness and funding to meet needs both locally and globally. Together, we can change the world one place at a time. For more information, visit our website at www.4others.org.
4others was founded in 2009 by Church of God of San Jose and has since become a grassroots movement of students, faith communities, businesses and service organizations. 100% of the funds raised by 4others go directly to our projects in the field and do not benefit the church programs.
