A Welcome From the Leadership
Hello! We are so glad you are here.
We are a GOSPEL CENTERED, MULTI-GENERATIONAL, INTER-DENOMINATIONAL church located in the heart of historic downtown Vista.
Bottomline Jesus is our Center. Because of this, everything we do is about Jesus, we preach the gospel passionately, and He influences and guides every area of our lives. We exist for His purpose and glory.
To find out about more about us and what we're passionate about check out our Story, Mission, Values, Affirmation of Faith, and Team.
+ HOW DO I GET CONNECTED?
We offer small gatherings with our pastors, elders, and leadership team to talk through your questions and get to know you more. We call this our Crash Course.
Our story began in 1926 when several families felt the call to start a church in the heart of Vista. At that time, New Community Church was the only church between Escondido and Oceanside.
Located in historic downtown Vista, we are a community shaped by the teachings of Jesus. We're taking Jesus' message of grace, truth, and compassion to Vista, North County San Diego and to the world.

Affirmation of Faith
+ THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and is the final authority for Christian faith and living.
+ THERE IS ONE TRUE GOD WHO EXISTS ETERNALLY AS 3 PERSONS
God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and has revealed himself to be perfect in love, righteous in all His ways, and Creator of all things.
+ JESUS CHRIST IS GOD'S ETERNAL SON
As true God and true man, He allowed Himself to be born of a virgin, taught men how to live by the example of His sinless life, was crucified as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, was seen by over 500 persons, returned to Heaven to prepare a place for us, and is coming again to judge all men.
+ MEN AND WOMEN WERE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD
Adam and Eve were created in the image of God, were tempted by Satan, and rebelled against God, thus causing all men to fall under condemnation. Through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven of our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit, and we become children of God.
+ THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ETERNAL GOD AND THIRD PERSON OF THE TRINITY
Persuades us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord. He lives in us, teaches us, enables us to live godly lives and to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God.
+ THE CHURCH IS THE LIVING BODY OF CHRIST ON EARTH
Jesus is the Head of the Church and the source of its life. The Body is composed of those who have received Him as Savior and Lord and are committed to one another, existing to celebrate the life of God, cultivate personal growth in Christ, care about one another in Christ, and communicate the gospel of Christ to the world.
+ JESUS CHRIST WILL RETURN TO ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM
Jesus Christ will return to earth to raise the dead, judge all humanity, and establish His glorious Kingdom. When he returns all believers will receive a new glorified body fit for eternal living. This is the hope of the Church. Those who have been reborn by the Spirit will live with and serve Him forever.
