we are glo


We believe the gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). We desire to reach the next generation for Christ and raise up young people that love God.


We believe in the value of a soul. He who wins souls is wise (Proverbs 11:30). As God’s grace reaches more and more people, God will receive more and more glory (1 Corinthians 4:15).


Jesus said to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:18). Our mission is nothing less.


We are the Cal Poly service of Mercy Church in San Luis Obispo, California. We love to worship Jesus and desire to see His glory spread throughout the earth. We believe there is no other gospel than that Christ died for our sins, that he was buried and that he rose again according to the scriptures! Our message is centered on the cross, the power of the blood of Jesus and the grace of our Father in Heaven.

Mercy Church is a cell group based church. Cells in the body are the smallest unit of life. Cells are always multiplying in order to help the body grow, function properly and stay healthy. The cell groups at Mercy Church are small groups that meet throughout the week and make up the body of Christ. The purpose of cells is evangelism, character development and to multiply into more cell groups.

We believe that every Christian has the opportunity to change the world for Jesus. Through cell groups and leadership training we are committed to raising up the next generation for Christ.

These Are My Hands

These are my weak hands. These are my slow feet. These are my blind eyes. This is my imperfect body.

Do these thoughts sound familiar? Have you spent most of your days staring into the mirror and criticizing what you see? Do you stare at your hands and wonder, “what can I do?” or at your feet and wonder “where can I go?”

Becoming a Supermoon

So, how ’bout that supermoon.

In case you weren’t aware, today marks the one month anniversary of our last supermoon (exciting, I know). A supermoon is a rare occurrence when the moon is full and really close to the earth (how rare could it really be—we’ve had like five in the past year!). This causes the moon to be bigger and brighter. Pretty cool, right? Or are you still thinking, “this is so nerdy, why should I care?”
