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.
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.
