How we got started
About The Founders
Juan and Jenna began attending and volunteering at Real Life Church and got involved in serving the community. One day a pastor came and began speaking about a new ministry called Celebrate Recovery. Because of Jenna’s background, she began attending and asked (dragged) Juan into coming with her, through their recovery journeys they each found healing from past hurts, habits and hang-ups and strengthened their relationship with Jesus. After three years, of serving, leading and helping others with their recovery journeys, Juan was ordained as a pastor (ask him about that story!).
The Palomino’s then moved their family to Fresno, CA to help launch a new celebrate Recovery ministry at Crosscity Church and after 14 months they were called back to Real Life Church in Santa Clarita to help relaunch their former Celebrate Recovery. Then, 18 months after reproducing another leader, Juan became the Campus Pastor for the Canyon Country location for Real Life Church. He led that campus for 13 months and felt God calling him to start a church in Palmdale, CA. Jenna was born and raised in Palmdale, and Juan lived in Palmdale for many years and visited often. So, after prayer, wise counsel, and getting affirmed through www.stadiachurchplanting.org they moved back to Palmdale with a heart to rebuild social influence by loving and serving their community for spiritual impact. Juan and Jenna want to shine the light and love of Jesus in Antelope Valley by connecting people to Jesus, through authentic relationships to serve their communities.
Our Mission: Help people BE like Jesus, DO what Jesus did, in order to HAVE the life He promised.
Our Vision: To see people saved, healed, discipled, and sent.

Our Beliefs & Values
We affirm that Scripture is God’s unique and inspired word (2 Peter 1:20-21), preserved through history for the purpose of giving us the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).
We worship the Holy Spirit of God (John 4:24), the Spirit of the crucified and risen Christ who is our Advocate and Comforter, given that we might be convicted of sin (John 16:5-16) and thus walk in faithfulness and give and receive forgiveness.
We worship one God who exists in eternal love between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus provides the only way to salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and
resurrection of Christ and decide to take up their own cross and live a life of love, grace, and forgiveness (John 1:12; 3:16; 5:24; Acts 4:12;
Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20).
The Well is a small part of the global Church as the community of salvation, the bride of Christ (Revelation 21:1-2). In the midst of human sin and need, God’s mission to save the world is directed
toward, and is experienced by, being in community with one another.
Human beings were created to exist forever either separated from God by sin or unified with God through Christ (Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:24-25: 5:11)
We worship and follow Jesus the Messiah, God’s only begotten son, fully God and fully human, who took up his cross and beckoned us to follow (Matthew 16:24-25) and was physically raised from the dead (Luke 23:44 – 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
We practice baptism as the symbol of one’s new birth into the new creation. It depicts our entrance into the Christian community that is ruled by the story of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. With a new identity, we are symbolizing dying to ourselves (Romans 6:3-4) in allowing the Spirit to transform us into the unified community of those who belong to God (Matthew 28:18-20). We affirm the pattern in Scripture to be believer’s baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38-41).
