Who We Are
We’re a vibrant congregation with a sense of optimism for what the Lord is doing and what He
is about to do in this church. While honoring our past, we’re embracing the future.
We are a community church with roots which go back to our founding in 1858 - eight years prior to the actual incorporation of
Santa Cruz as a city! We teach and preach Jesus as the Son of God, Who became man, and took on himself the transgressions of us all in order to bring us
into an eternal relationship with the God of the universe. Believers from many denominations have found a home in our fellowship.
We believe the words and message of the Bible are the only reliable source for building and sustaining our faith.
We provide Bible Studies on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.
We are a people of prayer who rely on the grace and the power of the Lord to provide everything we need.
We only use what the Lord gives us to carry on His ministry. We meet together for prayer on Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings and prayer is a vital part of our worship every Sunday morning.
We are a church that has always been strongly involved with missions, here in Santa Cruz, in our nation and throughout the world.

We are a place where faith is strengthened; a family where faith is shared; a community where faith comes alive.
Jesus said, “On this rock, I will build my Church” and it has been exciting to watch Him build it.
