The Bible says clearly that the church belongs to Jesus and is even described as the Body of Jesus Christ. SOMA is the Greek word used in the New Testament for this “Body”. We are connected to Jesus as our own body is connected to our own head. Jesus is the head of the church, He is the Senior Pastor. Therefore, church is all about Jesus, not us. (See Ephesians 4:11-16, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, 1 Peter 5:4, and Hebrews 13:20-21.)
Our church is more than a building, a pastor, a service, or an event. SOMA Church Community is a part of the Body of Jesus Christ, a group of missionaries in Sonoma County, a community of individuals united by our common relationship with Jesus Christ.
