As we approach Heart for the House each year, we are stirred with vision for what God has placed in our hearts, but we are also reminded that we serve a faithful God. Since the very beginning of ZOE, God has proven that He is faithful, generous, and has a heart for this house He is building. This last year has only reminded us that ‘over-and-above’ is in His nature, so we look forward with faith to the One who’s wholeheartedly building ZOE.
Heart for the House is also a reminder that God allows us to collectively partner in building His house. This offering has never been about an amount, it’s always been about participation. ZOE has been built on the faithfulness of people devoted to the vision God is accelerating through this house; to see people saved, disciples made, leaders raised, and the church released. We come together in this miracle story that God has written, expectant for what He is going to do, and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it all. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your faithfulness and sacrifice, to go over-and-above, and participate in what God is doing in this house. We know that our future is beautiful, and we are honored to be building it with you.

Last year I was going through one of the darkest seasons of my life after losing my aunt who raised me due to Covid-19. I was so sad and felt so overwhelmed after losing one of the most important people in my life. I saw online that Zoe was getting ready for a fast and my friend invited me to join. At first I thought it was crazy, however, I decided to give it a chance, and to give God a chance. I finished the fast, and started watching every message, sometimes twice a day. One day I was invited to come serve at the first in-person service since Covid shut downs and I broke down in tears because I had been asking God for a sign that this was my church. After I showed up to serve, I started attending Connect Groups and I instantly felt like the grief was lifting from my heart. I felt like I belonged somewhere, and I realized that this was what life was supposed to be like. Zoe was God’s answer to my prayer, it came at the darkest moment of my life, it saved me.
“ZOE was God’s answer to my prayer, it came at the darkest moment of my life, it saved me.”

Water Baptisms represent our old life being buried and our new life coming out of the water with Jesus. (Romans 6). After not being able to host baptisms for over 18 months, we had the honor of baptizing 22 people at Marina Del Rey beach this summer. 300 people in our community came out to support those who were taking the next step in their faith journey.
