The Greek word “Logos” is used in many contexts to refer to the concept of divine reason or wisdom. In the Christian tradition, the word “Logos” is also used to refer to Jesus Christ as the Word of God, or the embodiment of God’s wisdom and truth. This concept is rooted in the Gospel of John, which begins with the statement “In the beginning was the Word (Logos), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).
In the context of our church name, the use of the Greek word “Logos” reflects our belief in the importance of Christ as the embodiment of God’s truth and wisdom. By using this word, we seek to honor and acknowledge the central role that Christ plays in our faith and our understanding of God’s plan for humanity.
Additionally, the use of the Greek language in our church name reflects the historical and cultural roots of Christianity, which originated in the Greek-speaking world of the Mediterranean region. This tradition has been passed down through the centuries and remains an important part of the Christian heritage.
Overall, the use of the Greek word “Logos” in our church name reflects our commitment to honoring the Christian tradition and our belief in the central role that Christ plays in our faith and our understanding of God’s plan for humanity.
Logos Church exists because a need was identified in the Chatsworth area for a proper Pronomian church.
Logos Church aims to bring about spiritual growth in God’s people that will result in a righteous transformation in the hearts of those around us through proper teaching and living in God’s holy Law.
The term pronomia is the antithesis of the term anomia (ἀνομία): lawlessness, iniquity, disobedience, sin. The term ἀνομία is a combination of the Greek prefix α (not; negation) & νόμος (law). Linguistically, pronomia reflects “pro-law” in contrast to “anti-law” of ἀνομία.
So pronomian Christians are Christians who affirm the ongoing validity and applicability of the Torah (ie. The Law of Moses) in addition to the authority of the entire Old and New Testaments.
Notable beliefs and practices of Pronomian Christians include seventh-day Sabbath observance, observance of Biblical festivals (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Day of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles), observance of the Biblical dietary laws, and physical circumcision of males on the 8th day.

Logos Church meets on Saturday because we believe and affirm that the Sabbath Day (Saturday) is the prescribed day of rest and worship in the Bible.
The idea of resting and worshiping on the Sabbath instead of Sunday is rooted in the biblical tradition of the Sabbath. According to the Bible, the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week, which is Saturday, and it was established by God as a day of rest and worship for his people. In the Ten Commandments, God commands his people to “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8).
Furthermore, the New Testament does not record any instructions from Jesus or his disciples to change the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. In fact, Jesus himself observed the Sabbath and taught his followers to do the same. In the Gospel of Luke, for example, we read that “as was his custom, [Jesus] went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day” (Luke 4:16).
The practice of worshiping on Sunday instead of Saturday is believed to have originated in the early Christian church, as a way to distinguish itself from Judaism and to honor the day of Jesus’ resurrection. However, this shift was not based on any explicit biblical command or instruction.
Therefore, for those who believe in the authority of the Bible and the importance of following God’s commands, observing the Sabbath on Saturday would be the more faithful and obedient choice. This means setting aside time for rest and worship on the seventh day of the week, just as God instructed his people to do. It also means recognizing the importance of the Sabbath as a day of spiritual renewal and connection with God, and honoring it as a sacred and holy day.
We hope you will join us in remembering the Sabbath every week.
The belief that obedience to God’s commandments is necessary for salvation is a common misconception that many people hold when churches speak about the importance of keeping God’s commandments.
We affirm that a person is saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone, not by any works or actions they do. However, this does not mean that Christians are free to ignore God’s commandments. Rather, obedience to God’s commandments is seen as a natural outgrowth of one’s faith in Jesus Christ and as a way of expressing gratitude for the gift of salvation.
Therefore, in the context of our church, we emphasize on keeping God’s commandments not to earn salvation, but rather to live in a way that is pleasing to God and reflects the transformation that has taken place in the heart of a believer. The focus is on living out one’s faith in a tangible way, rather than on earning salvation through works.
When you visit Logos Church, you will encounter a diverse community of Christians seeking to know and love God.
Some people in our church may be curious of Christianity, some may be new Christians, some may have been Christians their entire lives. Logos welcomes everyone.
One of the best parts of Logos Church is that we organize our worship service in a way that many churches do not.
We begin with a public call to worship for God’s people to approach him as his corporate church. We will enter into worship together with the singing of songs, the reading of Holy Scripture, and corporate and personal prayers & reflections to prepare the hearts of those in attendance for the receiving of God’s Word from the pulpit.
The pastor will then present a sermon to the congregation to strengthen their faith and train them to live out the words of the Lord as they go back into the world that week.
At the end of the worship service, there will be a call of reflection on the words heard from the pulpit where people are encouraged to come pray or speak with the elders of the church. Following this, there will be an open 20 minutes Q&A session where attendees can ask the pastor clarification questions concerning the content of the day’s sermon.
Once the worship service officially closes after the Q&A, the church will break for fellowship together over a meal at the church. Everyone is welcome to bring something biblically-clean to share with the church in a potluck style time of table fellowship as God’s people.
Logos Church is a family-friendly church which believes that children are a blessing from the Lord and are a vital part of every local church.
We are currently working to develop a children’s program that will take place during the sermon period of service. Even if this means that there will be some “kid noise” in the church, we like it that way.
We want children of all ages to worship together with their families as we all grow in the Lord.
At Logos Church, you’re welcome to wear whatever you would like as long as it promotes a degree of what you consider modest.
There is no established dress code and we like it that way. Some people may be in their Sabbath best, some may be in t-shirts and sweats, some may be covered in tattoos. Just be you.
