Children’s Ministry

Faith Crusaders

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”– Matthew 19:14 (NIV)

Here at Faith, we care deeply about the spiritual well-being of even the youngest members of our church (we call them Faith Crusaders!).  Our thriving children’s program and youth group are led by our Children’s Ministry Director, Lay Youth Leader, and a team of Bible study teachers who are all active members of Faith. We believe in providing spiritual mentorship and guidance to kids of all ages, as they are not only the future of our church, but a precious part of our current Faith family.

The Faith Crusaders worship is specially-designed for ages preschool through seventh grade. We praise God together through songs, activities, and easy-to-understand interactive Bible stories. Everyone gets a chance to participate!  

WORSHIP TIME

Faith Crusaders worship together in the Sunday School Activity Center from 11:00am – 12:00am, then go to class for age-appropriate lessons and activities.

FAMILY WORSHIP

We also devote a few Sundays a year to family worship, including a Faith Crusader-led service in celebration of Children’s Day in May.

What We Believe

Welcome to Faith Presbyterian Church of Torrance! We are a particularized congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) serving the South Bay area in Los Angeles, CA.

Triune God

We believe in one Triune God whom alone we worship and serve. God eternally exists in the three persons of the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

His Grace

We believe all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Because all are sinners, we maintain that no one is able to save oneself from God’s wrath apart from His grace.

Holy Scripture

We believe the Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the written word of God. The Bible, being inspired by the Holy Spirit, is inerrant in its original manuscripts. As God’s revelation of the truth, we believe the Bible is authoritative and infallible in matters of faith and practice.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, fully God and fully man. Through His death on the cross He atoned for the sins of all who put their faith in Him as Lord and Savior. Through His bodily resurrection from the dead, we believe that He won for believers ultimate victory over death.

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit dwells within the believer’s heart, empowering Christians through God’s word to trust and serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives.

Judgement

We believe that God has appointed a day when Jesus will return to judge all mankind and to receive unto Himself those who have put their trust in Him.

Inseparable

We believe that nothing in life or death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Mission Statement

Faith Presbyterian Church of Torrance is a family in Christ who desires to create a strong foundation of faith through studying God’s Word in order to foster a heart of worship in all aspects of life. We are inspired by Christ to love and serve one another in our church, community, and world. We seek to deepen our relationship with God by encouraging each other and striving to be a community that is welcoming and accepting.

Worship

Our Lord’s Day worship service is a blend of contemporary praise and traditional Reformed liturgy. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month. God loves and accepts us as we are, so we welcome you to dress comfortably. Whether it’s in shorts and a T-shirt or a jacket and tie, we invite you to join us as we worship the Lord together.
