Baptism is a public expression of a personal decision to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior. Jesus commanded that his followers experience the rite of baptism to demonstrate their love and commitment.
Baptism by immersion is a rite rich with symbolism. As one lays back in the water, one is symbolically dying to an old lifestyle. As one is raised out of the water, it is a symbol of resurrection and the promise of new life with Jesus.
At Wilshire, we celebrate one’s decision to be baptized during regular services. Contact the office for specific information.
Rooted is a 10 week small group experience that teaches people what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, built on the faith’s foundational elements including as worship, generosity, service, evangelism, prayer, and studying God’s word. Cost for the material is $30 and includes a celebration dinner at the end of the 10 weeks.

At the heart of Jesus’ teaching was the missional command to love God, to love our neighbors, and to make fully devoted followers of Jesus:
“The most important commandment is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Our desire at Wilshire Avenue is to be the “heart of downtown” and reach out to our community in very practical and loving ways to help meet needs and, most importantly, share the love of Jesus.
We have a lot of areas of service. If you’re interested in joining our volunteer team, please fill out the form below, and we’ll be in touch with you soon.
