On March 22, 2015, Encounter Church was planted in Mission Viejo, California.  Our desire is to see genuine encounters with the living God because only a living God can produce radically transformed lives – lives that are marked by the fruits of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  

As we pursue our mission, everything we do as a church will center around FIVE specific things we want to accomplish in the life of each and every person that calls Encounter their home.

Encountering God

When you have a genuine encounter with the life-changing God, your life will never be the same. God loves you and is crazy about you.  He desires a deep relationship with you.

loving relationships

We welcome people like family and love and support one another in everyday life.

Radical Transformation

God’s love transforms us through a process called sanctification.   Sanctification is a process in which we are made into the image of God.   His Spirit produces fruit in us that will last.  

Generous Lives

Committed and overwhelmingly generous with our time, talent and treasure.

Life on Mission

Using the unique gifts and calling God has given each one of us for the glory of HIs kingdom.

Inviting people to encounter a life-changing God and become passionate followers of Christ
