Our mission is to love God, love people, and help people love God. We strive to provide followers of Jesus a setting in which they can grow in their relationship with Christ, develop caring relationships with others, and put their faith into action through Christ-centered service.
The Cordova Church of Christ began as a mission effort by a small group of military service people and their families. They wanted to have a place of worship for Christians from the local military bases just after the end of World War II. Weekly gatherings originated in various locations from garages to insurance offices until we built a small church building with a capacity of 150. In 1986, approximately 300 members marched one mile down Coloma Road to our current facility. Not only was it a defining moment for our congregation, but also a very exciting one because we would be worshiping and learning in a new facility equipped with a large auditorium, numerous classrooms, and a library. In 1993 our local military base closed. Although we are no longer considered a “military congregation,” we are still actively growing and clearly have a mission to spread God’s word to those around us.
Today, our church family is ethnically diverse with over 350 members living in more than 40 communities throughout the greater Sacramento
area. This gives us a tremendous amount of God-given talent and experience, which we utilize in all area’s of God’s work. Cordova members believe in caring for and supporting one another through fellowship and service to others.
