The word "soma" is Greek for "body." As a local church, we are indeed The Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23). Our name reminds us that church is not a building and it's not something we do on Sundays. As followers of Jesus, we are The Church! We have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and our new identity is found in Him alone. This good news (or Gospel) informs all that we say, do, and think.
Soma San Marcos is part of a larger family of Soma churches, who all believe that Gospel communities on mission (or Missional Communities) are the most effective means for making Gospel-centered disciples. Thus, Soma churches are intentionally structured around Missional Communities, empowering and equipping normal, everyday people to live in light of the Gospel and make disciples who make disciples.
Together, Soma churches aim for global, gospel saturation, hoping that our lives are so saturated with the good news of Jesus Christ that one day every man, woman, and child in every corner of the world will have a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed through His people, The Body of Christ.
