Although the church was founded 3 decades ago, the values and principles remain the same which the members are proud of. Saddleback church would like to campaign the “UnliLove” or unlimited love in the Philippines and as the newest church out from the planned 12 locations in 12 cities around the world in order to minister to each region’s unreached people groups and share the love, power, and hope of the good news of Jesus Christ.
