Good Community Church of Torrance is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). We uphold the Baptist Faith and Message, and our Statement of Faith highlights key doctrine from there.


There is only one true God, existing in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the all righteous, all powerful, all knowing, eternal, and sovereign creator and caretaker of the universe. God alone is worthy of worship.

God the Father

The Father rules over creation with righteousness and love.


The Son of God took human form in Jesus to reveal God’s presence in this world. He was crucified to pay the penalty for people’s sins, resurrected on the third day, and glorified to be the Lord over the universe. Jesus will return at the appointed time to complete God’s plan of salvation for the world.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit makes known the inner things of God, works in and works out salvation in a believer, and imparts spiritual gifts, especially for the building up of churches.

The Bible

Holy Scripture was written by men and inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is the inerrant revelation of God.


God created humanity in His image. The first humans disobeyed God, so sin entered the world. Consequently, humanity is by nature is separated from God.


Reconciliation to God is only possible through faith in God’s provision of salvation in Jesus Christ and confession of His Lordship.

The Church

The church is made up of people who are reconciled to God. When Christ returns, He will gather the church to Himself to receive the promised provision of eternal life.
