We exist so that people on the fence can step into a pathway of life in Christ. Join us in person or digitally every Sunday at 4pm. We are a fledgling church in Santa Barbara that was planted out of a family of "Reality" churches originating in Carpinteria.
Our mission is to immerse ourselves in the life of God, while learning how to do all that Jesus said. Our Sunday corporate worship gatherings are on 700 E. Anapamu St in the Santa Barbara High School theatre. Our times are at 10am. Childcare is provided. The majority of our Sunday gatherings are spent around the expository preaching of Scripture, and long swaths of musical worship. Hope to see you soon!

Mission: We're here to learn how to take seriously all that Jesus taught and did.
Operating as usual
In light of the recent violent events in Washington, DC, and the power struggle between political ideologies, we must remember that the way of Jesus calls us to something vastly different: the cross. For more on this, check our recent sermon “The Earthly Battle” and join us as we pray, “May God’s kingdom come and his will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.” And join us tomorrow at our new location for our new series in the Gospel of Mark, as he shows us that Jesus is King.” ✨

Practice, practice, practice.
Practicing your faith means doing what Christ taught, which is to love God and love others (Matthew 28:20, 22:37-39). This includes learning how to receive and give God’s love in your daily life, whether that be at home, in the workplace, or where you play. Home groups are the primary environment where we learn to practice our faith together.
