We Connect People
to Jesus and Each Other

Welcome to the Love Center Ministries website. We are an active, growing Christian congregation; a church comprised of people from all walks of life, blending people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds into a church united to worship, learn, love and to serve God and our fellow man.

Our mission is to assist individuals in recognizing and acknowledging the gifts that God has placed inside them as well as to equip each member to face life's day-to-day challenges through empowerment by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

Our History

In October of 1972, the Love Center Church was birthed in the flatlands of East Oakland.

What We Believe

The Holy Scriptures

We believe that scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (II Timothy 3:16, 17) .

The Godhead

We fully believe the mystery of the Godhead. We believe that Jesus was both human and divine, and further, that the Godhead be understood to mean all to the fullness of God (Colossians 1:19 and 2:9).

Eternal Life & New Birth

We believe that man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men and when fulfilled produces eternal life (II Corinthians 7:10, I John 5:12).

Water Baptism

We further believe that to experience the new birth one must be baptized, by immersion in water, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and be baptized with the Holy Spirit (Ghost).
