Our Doctrine

Our church is committed to the beliefs of the Westminster Confession of Faith and all the doctrinal statements of Reformed Theology. The church is defined by its outlook on Scripture, and it is our conviction that the Word of God is infallible and inerrant; God’s authoritative word to His people.


The Bible is the written word of God,

inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

The Holy Trinity

There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

All are sinners

and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

Salvation is by God alone

as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God,

who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

God is gracious and faithful to His people

not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

The Holy Spirit indwells God's people

and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

Jesus will return

bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

All aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God

under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Our Staff

Senior Pastor Joseph Myung at Hope Presbyterian Church of San Diego


Senior Pastor

As a middle-schooler growing up in Baltimore, Pastor Joe dreamed of becoming a pastor because he loved being with the church family so much. He loves worshipping, fellowshipping, and sharing life with brothers and sisters in Christ. While in medical school in Grenada, one of the things he missed most was preaching the Word every Lord’s Day! He realized then how much he loves preaching the Word. He and other staff members are committed to preaching Christ through the gospel. Pastor Joe also loves the city of San Diego. He roots for all things San Diego. He prays for its shalom. He is grateful to God for allowing him to preach the gospel to the people he loves in this beautiful city.

The fireworks went off and now they are happily married. Together they raise one silly boy named Myles.

Some of his favorite things to do in San Diego are exploring different hiking trails, finding hidden beach spots, taking Myles to the botanical gardens/zoo/aquarium/museums, scoping out different coffee shops, and appreciating the beautiful weather.
