About Our Congregation
The Pacific Beach Christian Church seeks to be a loving and inviting inter-generational family of faith. We are committed to helping people of all ages develop a meaningful and genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. This includes providing people of various ages the opportunity to worship, grow, fellowship, serve and witness together. It is in this spirit of cooperation, care and concern that we then hope to provide people with an opportunity to experience Christ’s love and grace.
We are also committed to being intentional about providing the necessary resources to develop disciples of Jesus who are committed to growing in his image. Our belief is that as we help people to grow in their faith, they will also grow in their desire to act as instruments of God’s love and grace in our community and world.
We value freedom of thought and biblical interpretation recognizing that our unity is grounded in our common faith in Jesus as the Christ, not in uniformity of doctrine. Our theological diversity enriches our community of faith.

Brian grew up in the Catholic Church and attended Catholic schools through high school. He began attending a Disciples of Christ congregation while in high school and was impressed with the loving, supportive and open spirit present in the congregation. He values the diversity within the Disciples of Christ and appreciates our efforts to work toward unity within the body of Christ.
